OVERTIME COMMUNICATIONS CREATES COLLEGE TV – A SHOW THAT HELPS STUDENTS GO FROM ‘LEARNING TO EARNING’

(March 6, 2014 – Swift Current, Canada) The award winning communication’s company Overtime Communications Ltd. has created yet another media product to add to its growing list. College TV is a limited series that can be seen in primetime on City Saskatchewan beginning Thursday March 13th at 10:30pm, followed by Episode 2 on March 20th at 10:30pm and the third and final installment on March 27th at 10:30pm. College TV offers insight into some of the most sought after jobs in Saskatchewan while showing students just how they can go from “learning to earning.”

Targeted to high school graduates who are searching for marketplace and training  information on the different career opportunities that are high on the list of “jobs in need,” College TV is  also a great tool for mature students looking to transition into a well-paying career.

Follow along with hosts Kashlee Parmitar and Kristen Reed, as they take us on a road trip across Saskatchewan to visit all seven of Saskatchewan’s Regional Colleges. Once there, they roll up their sleeves and jump right into the action learning from some of the best instructors in the province at each location, giving viewers a glimpse into what a day in the life of a student is like; what each campus experience has to offer; and how Saskatchewan’s Regional Colleges have ramped up their efforts to meet the needs of Saskatchewan’s growing industries.

“College TV gives students a chance to tap into the industries and careers that are the most in demand in Saskatchewan,” says George Tsougrianis, CEO of Overtime Communications Ltd. and Executive Producer. “In years past, it was always thought that the only way to get a good career was by through a four-year program or longer. College TV shows how students can literally go from “learning to earning” in a much shorter time period in careers that have jobs waiting.”

“We took the road trip so that they didn’t have to,” adds Tsougrianis. “To help students as they look to the future and make life-long career decisions.”

“City Saskatchewan is excited to help bring attention to our excellent RegionalCollege system,” said Joanne McDonald, General Manager, City Saskatchewan. “As the provincial educational broadcaster, one of our goals is to provide content tailored to our viewers about education and educational opportunities here in the province.”
