    He had investigated a number of job possibilities, but had received no offers and was still unclear about the direction he wished to follow. His strengths appeared to lie in the marketing and human resources area. He had little interest in joining a major retail company: “I’ve been on that treadmill before,” he said. He felt that whatever his eventual career choice would be, he wanted to do “something that will make some differences to me and to others.” The idea of working for himself was appealing: “At least I’d be sweating to put money in my own pocket.”…

    For 7 years, I had been employed by AMC Theatres of Canada and had learned a great deal about how to manage a business and how to deal with guest concerns as well as employee concerns. What started out as a part-time job as a teenager, as well as a way to stay connected with my love of movies, I had rapidly progressed through the ranks in the organizational structure of my theatre location. My schooling was not in business, or more specifically human resources, but in the humanities, therefore I learned management techniques in a more hands on way rather than through theories. I think back to my experiences dealing with employees at work and recall situations that I handled which mirror what is in the text as organizational behaviour concepts. A lot of how I dealt with situations were either coached by superiors, or occurred through trial and error circumstances, circumstances that would have been much easier to deal with had I taken this course beforehand.…
