Are you considering a career in the immigration industry? There's never been a better time to get started than right now.

There’s no limit to what you can imagine and create in the magical world of 3D animation, visual effects, and CGI.

But just what is 3D animation? It’s the process of making digital images appear to move in a three-dimensional space. A 2D cartoon animator creates flat objects that have only length and width; a 3D animator adds depth as well, so that the characters can move and rotate following the same principles as in the real world.

So how do you get started? In this post, we explain how to become a 3D animator, what career paths are available in the field, and what steps can best set you up for success.

How One CSW Instructor Came to Embrace Online Education

Oct 12, 2022 1:11:40 PM

As an experienced psychiatric nurse and instructor in Herzing’s Community Support Worker (CSW) program, Kim Melnyk was used to having lots of in-person interactions with students and people in recovery. She wasn’t the biggest fan of technology; she much preferred a more personal touch.

So when COVID came along and forced her to shift to teaching online, she had to make some major adjustments.

Initially, Kim was very much looking forward to a return to class post-pandemic. But when it started to occur, she found that it did not solve the problems she thought it would. Instead, she found herself doing more and more interaction online—and discovering benefits she had never considered before.

We spoke with her recently to learn more about her experience.

Big Demand for Physiotherapist Assistant Grads in Ottawa

Oct 5, 2022 10:37:12 AM

The job market for physiotherapist assistants is booming in Ottawa right now. More and more people are seeking treatment, and many clinics can’t find enough qualified assistants to keep up with the demand.

That’s why Herzing recently launched a new diploma program for physiotherapist/rehabilitation assistants. It came about as the direct result of consultation with local employers who are starved for staff.

Two of those employers are Mohamed Fouda, clinic manager at Prime Physio Plus, and Jason Verge, owner and clinical director at Stittsville Carp Road Physiotherapy. They’ve both been in the physiotherapy field for more than 25 years, and they are both looking forward to accepting interns from Herzing’s new program.

We caught up with Mohamed and Jason recently to learn more about the role of physiotherapist assistants (PTAs) and find out why there’s such a need for them in the Ottawa area.

 

What Does a Law Clerk Do?

Oct 3, 2022 11:12:32 AM

You like the idea of a career in the legal field, and you have a vague notion that it takes a whole lot less time to become a law clerk in Ontario than it does to become a lawyer (which is true). But you’re stuck on a basic question: what does a law clerk do?

Here’s the short answer: A law clerk provides essential legal and administrative support to help lawyers manage their caseloads and serve their clients. Law clerks are not the same as paralegals, although both provide legal support.

In this post, we explore the role of a law clerk in Ontario: what they do, what skills they need, what career opportunities they have, and what training they require.

How to Become a Paralegal in Ontario

Sep 27, 2022 10:22:37 AM

Over the last few years, paralegal has become a very popular career choice in Ontario. There are a few reasons for this. One, there’s the special status of paralegals in Ontario—unlike in other areas of Canada, paralegals here can become licensed, represent clients in court for certain matters, and run their own practices.

Another reason involves the amount of schooling. Compared to law school, you can become a paralegal and start your career quite quickly. Admission requirements for paralegal programs are fairly simple, and the training itself is relatively short.

Plus, there’s a huge demand for more affordable legal services in Ontario. Paralegals charge less than lawyers, making it possible for more people to seek representation in certain areas of the law.

Seriously considering this career path? Wondering how to become a paralegal in Ontario? Here are six key steps you need to follow.
