“I dove right into Telfer student life and haven’t looked back! Getting involved means meeting entrepreneurial students and interesting professionals. It has also shaped my perception of the business community in Ottawa. And being active in Telfer has given me hands-on skills that students can’t always learn in a classroom. Being involved really rounds out your education. Jump into clubs to get your feet wet and find out what your calling is!”  Read more ›

“Talk with confidence. People will memorize 55% of your body language, 38% of your intonation and only 7% of your words. Focus on your attitude. Without the right attitude, your aptitude will hardly bring you to a new altitude. Try to learn as much as possible in class, but don’t be nervous for the exam if you’re well prepared. The university is here to help you achieve your goal.”  Read more ›

"My dream job is somewhere in the world of quantitative finance. While still unsure of the exact career I want, I know I am on the right path and it has started with Telfer. The University of Ottawa has given me countless experiences to learn both inside and out of the classroom. It has been through courses like Finance Theory, Stats, IT, BA, and Macro, that have allowed me to piece together my passions of investing, the economy and quantitative methods. I also could not have come to this realization without the help of some incredibly talented people and mentors in my life – such as my Business Analytics professor, Jonathan Li, who has been an invaluable insight into this career path. For this, I thank him and all the others from Telfer who have helped me figure out my ambitions."  Read more ›

"I’m an international student, and my arrival in Canada was a big challenge. Fortunately, I made the right choice by choosing the University of Ottawa. It offers many resources to help us throughout our studies and even after graduation. For example, Career Centre advisors helped me polish my resumé and improve my interview skills. This was very useful because I got internships as a CO-OP student.  Read more ›

"When I had the opportunity to become one of the Co-President’s of the Telfer Human Resources Association, it was an easy decision for me to accept. In my third year of university, any opportunity I had that I initially thought “no, I can’t do that”, I pushed myself to say YES to instead. Doing this with HRA was definitely worth it. Pushing myself outside of my comfort zone is the best thing I’ve ever done! The knowledge I’ve gained from working with other intelligent and passionate individuals, as well as the confidence I now have from connecting with and speaking in front of colleagues and professionals is invaluable. Discovering how great my interest in HR is was a bonus as well!"  Read more ›

"The inspiration to create WMN came from joining the women's network at American Express when I worked there this summer. They are one of the top employers in Canada for Diversity Management, and won the award several times because they have so many networks; millennials network, remote workers network, women’s network; the list goes on. I joined their Women’s Interest Network, WIN. The interest came when I went to their roundtable series. Led by 3 VPs, a group of 20 women of all ages and seniorities had the opportunity to have a conversation. I have never found such an authentic and genuine community of people who were willing to share their vulnerabilities and hard life lessons. I was so inspired that I immediately sent an email off to the Relationship Managers at the Career Centre. Once I started it, it wasn't just me but every person I talked to opened another door for me and it blossomed from there. It is so empowering to be in an environment where you see women leading at the front lines and supporting each other. If you're passionate about something, it grows."   Read more ›

"In general, my experience at Telfer has been good. I found the classes from some professors quite stimulating. I was also involved in clubs and extracurricular activities that gave me the opportunity to make the most of my academic experience. I find that the activities provided by the Career Centre help students develop skills and build their professional profile. I'm supposed to go to Madrid in the winter for an international exchange. I would like to improve my third language, which is Spanish, and gain a better understanding of ​​international markets, especially European markets with which I’m less familiar. Since my professional goal is to pursue a career abroad, I will benefit a lot from this exchange."  Read more ›

“My time here at Telfer has been challenging so far. Despite these challenges, my experiences have been rewarding. Telfer has allowed me to study in French immersion, as well as to gain valuable volunteer and work experience. After much hard work and determination, I am proud to say that I was admitted into the CO-OP program. Ultimately, through my developing skills, I have learned to overcome these obstacles by setting goals, being persistent and managing my time.”  Read more ›
