 "The most important lesson that I’ve learned in life is to listen to yourself and not be influenced by other people. You are the only one capable of changing and creating your destiny. If you ever come across a difficult situation, never give up.  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer - Rachel

“My Telfer experience has been so much more than just going to classes and it’s really hard to pick one happiest moment. What I can say though is the moments that bring me the most joy are with the different clubs I’ve been involved in. There’s something really rewarding about pouring all your energy into an event or initiative and then seeing it be successful. Whether it be on Telfer International, or with Enactus I have a lot of wonderful memories.”  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer - Alexandria

“I am so happy to be a part of such a great business school like Telfer. At times I do find it difficult to manage the workload and allocate my time correctly to do well in all my courses. Even though it can become quite discouraging, there is always an outlet, resource, colleague or staff member ready with the perfect advice and tips! That’s what I love about Telfer, it is a wonderful community.”  Read more ›

 Humans of Telfer - Kasia

“I credit where I am right now, and the path that I’m on, to the Ambassador Program and the Career Centre. The program was where I discovered the number of resources Telfer offers us as students. There’s a lot more to school than just grades, and I don’t think many students understand that! Through the workshops and other activities that Telfer offers, I realized - maybe accounting isn’t for me. Even after switching programs, I decided to continue being an ambassador, because I’m passionate about sharing this information. What good is it if you keep it to yourself, right?”  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer - Sarah

“I was initially worried that as a student coming from out of town, I wouldn’t have the same advantage or connections as others when it came to finding a job in the co-op process or joining clubs on campus. Luckily, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Through the networking events hosted by Telfer, including specific events by the Telfer Accounting Club and the Career Centre, I was able to meet so many new people, make lasting friendships, and secure a great co-op position at Deloitte. I truly feel that alternating between work and school during my undergrad has been beneficial in a multitude of ways. Applying real-life concepts in classes from my job experience, as well as using theoretical knowledge taught during lectures while on the job has allowed me to develop both as a student and a professional.”  Read more ›

“Find something that you’re really passionate about. Your biggest value can be maximized when you really love the job you do. Be true to yourself and be honest to yourself. Consider what you really want to do instead of listening to what others say Never be afraid of making mistakes. You are still young and can still experience different things. Yet I want you to plan your career right now because I don’t want you to have regrets in the middle of your career.”  Read more ›

“After 3 years of studying in my native country, I realized that I needed a school that could do justice to my ambitious aspirations. I had the chance to hear about Telfer through a friend, and I applied and got accepted! Initially enrolled in the Marketing option, I quickly changed my mind once I saw that the Finance program was a lot more appealing to me. The well-equipped Finance Lab also won me over!”  Read more ›
