“I heard about being a Career Centre ambassador through a friend who was also applying for the position. I realized I didn’t want to limit my extracurricular experience to specific clubs but to expand my experiences to include something that is more general to the student body. I knew as a Career Centre ambassador I would be stepping out of my comfort zone, since I would be constantly networking with students,  employers, as well as Career Centre staff.  Read more ›

"The fact that I chose a specialization in Finance can be explained in part by my family culture: almost all of my family works in this field. I also have a passion for numbers, and the Finance program was the ideal choice. When I came to Telfer, I had expectations just from an academic standpoint, but I gained so much more: I worked as a teaching assistant, I was president of a competition and I also did CO-OP internships.  Read more ›

"The scariest moment for me at Telfer was in my second year when I realized all my plans had to change. I went to a Career Centre workshop and started talking to the relationship managers, Kimberley and Caroline. They told me I needed to network more than I initially thought (since I was no longer in co-op) and get to know myself better. This pushed me to get my Career Development Certificate and really get involved.  Read more ›

"Over the past four years, I've made numerous friends here at Telfer. It's not just meeting other students in classrooms or surviving final exams; it’s getting involved with the 13 clubs the faculty has to offer. With encouragement from other people, you find your stride and discover who you are as a person. I've been a part of 6 organizations within Telfer over the past 4 years. Some of my roles have been long-term, with CASCO and Enactus, and some short-term, like the Entrepreneurship Club. I'm doing various tasks and experiencing volunteer work that has allowed me to get out of my comfort zone, and helped me discover who I am. The most significant and valuable takeaway from my time at Telfer has been the ability to diversify my skill set, thanks to the Telfer Career Centre. I wouldn't have the experiences I have today if it wasn't for the Telfer network and the ability to put myself out there. Knowing that the students will support and accept me for who I am, has been priceless."  Read more ›

"I chose to specialize in Management because, in the future, I want to work for myself. I want to manage my own business one day and be my own boss. I am in Management to explore the diverse options and opportunities of owning a business. Being my own boss would also be a lot simpler and easier because I would be able to plan my own schedule and do things that I like. It would allow me to work on my hobbies, such as acting and volunteering. Being my own boss means I am in charge of my life and I'm not being micromanaged."  Read more ›

"Being a TA for the Business Communication Skills course (ADM 2381) has allowed me to help students develop useful public speaking skills and to effectively prepare them for all types of presentations they might encounter. It has also allowed me to have a noticeable impact on other students’ skills and confidence in terms of presentations. Seeing the progress some students make and the skills they develop throughout the duration of the course is really impressive."  Read more ›

"101 week was really fun as a guide this year. Experiencing it from a different perspective made me see just how much Telfer does to make sure the new students have fun. We worked hard to make it a great week. This year we introduced more mixed faculty activities which really helps people connect with others so now it is a week of opportunities to meet even more new people!"  Read more ›

"Being a student at Telfer meant having access to all 13 clubs that are a part of Telfer. From the first day I heard about CASCO, I knew this was the club I wanted to join because the club’s main purpose is to raise money for CHEO. Being on CASCO’s Sponsorship team has given me the opportunity to work with professionals from various industries whose companies believe in the importance of corporate social responsibility. Together, we raise even more money for CHEO with each passing year. Being on the CASCO team has enriched my Telfer experience through the lasting friendships I’ve made with my teammates, and the business relationships I’ve created with industry professionals."  Read more ›
