“I first became interested in Telfer Capital Fund (TCF) when I attended a workshop on financial modelling. I really enjoyed that workshop and applied the following year to be part of the program. Ever since, TCF has been a great learning experience. It has helped me learn about the different career paths that I could pursue as a finance student. Now, as a portfolio manager co-leader, I have been able to meet with CEOs and connect with key individuals within Telfer. I encourage all of those who are passionate, optimistic and ambitious to apply. In TCF, it’s not only about how smart you are, it’s about whether you’re willing to put in the time and have the right attitude.”  Read more ›

"I’m new to campus and have enjoyed learning about what the Telfer School has to offer and am happy to be getting to know the students. As a recruiter for the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, I want to let students know that the CPA designation is not just about auditing or tax work. It has so much more to offer and certainly doesn’t limit you to positions in accounting firms. CPAs can work at any company anywhere in the world. If you see me on campus, don’t hesitate to say hello or ask any questions you may have!"  Read more ›

“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 ›

“As manager of the Career Centre, I make sure that everything is ready to go for all the activities that we have going on, whether it is for a networking event or workshop. I also run the ambassador program, making sure the ambassadors have the resources to do what they need to do. In addition, my role consists of checking in with employers for upcoming activities and meeting with them when they are on campus. My role also allows me to be creative, to build strategies and plans, and seeing that my background is in marketing, it’s a great fit.  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 ›
