There is only one more week until Giving Tuesday on November 30th! 🕒

Charles Doray and @o.paradis are proud to be this year’s 2022 @jeuxducommerce coordinators (@telfercompetitions), representing the 85 #TelferNation students who will be participating in this year’s competition.

“This type of experiential learning helps us understand the realities of the job market, face real business problems and network with potential employers. All the delegates are so happy to be going back to JDC in person creates more synergy within the delegation, while also helping build long lasting friendships, and gives us more opportunities to meet other delegations and network outside of the University of Ottawa.”

They’re asking for support to help as many students attend and participate in the competition in person!
