Meet the Faculty: Stuart Poyntz


Bringing Communication into classrooms across the Lower Mainland. Thinking back to my last year of high school, I can remember looking at all the different programs that SFU has to offer and trying to decide what courses I should take, what university path I should follow.

What Exactly is A Communications Co-op?

My official title for this position and the name I sign all my emails with is “Transport Canada Communications Co-op”. But what exactly does this job entail? Quite honestly, after working six months at it, I’ve come to the conclusion that in general, I’m the person who does everything that everyone else is too busy with important work to do or handle. While in no ways do I mean to imply that everything I do is unimportant and irrelevant, it does mean that I get an opportunity to do a wide variety of jobs and duties, some immensely helpful to my learning experiences, others just menial tasks that someone needs to get done.

I worked at TP Systems Ltd. for two terms, summer and fall, as a Recruitment Administrator. I was originally hired to work in IT Staffing, but was able to work with teams across all three lines of business during my term and initiate my own independant project.

My role as the Marketing & Communications Assistant involved coordinating events and promotions, managing social media applications, assisting with graphic design projects, filming and photography, editing videos analyzing social media analytics and ensuring a consistent brand image of the SFU Recreation department, facilities and programs.

My expectations going into my first co-op term with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) were high and, thankfully, the experience has been more than I could have asked for.
