The passion that everyone in this group shares. When you're around people who love what they do, it resonates and motivates in a positive way. It's a group of people who want to help others and see one another succeed. In an industry where there's so much competition, it's nice to feel support and have people rooting for you to be successful.

SMG made me feel like it was OKAY to feel that uncertainty of finding yourself after completing my degree. The media industry is tough to break into, and inevitably many of us will face self-doubt. SMG provided a place to go to engage in stories of people who are just like me. This made it easier to grow confidence in my own skills and ability and helped me preservere to land a career in the industry.

SMG is a great way to meet new people in the media industry and add to your professional network. In addition to the excellent articles you can read about people's personal struggles and triumphs in the media industry, SMG's social media also acts as a great hub for the latest news in broadcasting.

Community! In this industry it's so good to know there's a place to go to hear from your peers and get inspired. Also love that you have SMG nights so people can actually meet. I follow SMG on Social Media to see new faces and job opportunities.
Jacqueline Doorey, Social Reporter - CBC Sports
I appreciate getting to know other people in the industry - how they got to where they are and what they spend their days doing. The single biggest reason SMG is worth a follow is for the job opportunity alerts.

Aside from making connections, it's a great way to discover job postings! I always forward to friends I know that are looking for work.
