Humans of Telfer – Noémie

“I’ve always been inspired by several women in my life and others who have left their mark on History or became famous in the media. These include, among others, my mother and my aunts, independent ladies who work in male-dominated fields. I think also of Serena Williams, whom I admire for her exceptional athletic performances. I also think of Jane Austen, an English author who lived in the 18th century and wrote compelling, feminist texts.  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer – Wiam

“My favourite aspect of Telfer is the emphasis on student involvement in clubs and organizations. Getting involved in clubs such as WMN and AIESEC in Ottawa have been the highlight of my Telfer experience. Through them, I was not only able to meet some amazing people, but also develop myself personally and professionally. One of my proudest moments here was the development of Words with WMN, the first podcast from a Telfer Club. It gave me a creative platform to engage with new people and start some impactful conversations.  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer – Sophia

“Hello. My name is Sophia Chouinard, and I am a Co-op marketing student. I am now in my 4th year, and so far, I have had an amazing experience at Telfer. What I like most about Telfer is meeting new, like‑minded people. I have met all my close friends through my classes, and they have truly enhanced my university experience. My ideal job would be within the marketing field, either in event planning or content creation. Ideally, I would like to work in an organization that aligns with my values of corporate sustainability and sustainable living.  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer – Amour

“Initially, what attracted me to this region was the accounting program at the Université du Québec en Outaouais. I ended up choosing the Telfer School of Management instead due to its national recognition. I have the feeling of having a unique identity at uOttawa, and the access to French is also a huge benefit, in my opinion. Ma greatest source of inspiration is Michael Jordan. I admire him for his perseverance and drive to succeed, in business as in basketball.  Read more ›

Human of Telfer – Matthew

“Joining the uOttawa volleyball team as a Finance student at the Telfer School of Management was made possible through the different programs and services offered by the University, such as: the Peer Mentoring Program, the Student Academic Success Service (SASS), and, obviously, my 3rd‑ and 4th‑year volleyball teammates. From my very first year, they provided me with books and advice to facilitate my integration at Telfer. By going through the Co-op process, I received useful advice. If I had one piece of advice for students who are going through this process for the first time, it would be this: fewer jobs will be available due to the COVID-19 pandemic: be proactive.  Read more ›

Humans of Telfer – Liam

“Telfer has given me the competitive advantage to thrive inside the classroom as well as in my daily work life. My favourite memories at Telfer so far would be Mad Marketing, hosted by the Telfer Marketing Association (TMA), and 101 Week, hosted by the Telfer Student Council. I met many amazing employers and made meaningful connections. I was able to promote myself and learn how to network effectively. 101 Week is how I met the majority of my friends. A year later, I still appreciate the fact that I still connect with all of them (virtually, of course).”  Read more ›
