“My most memorable moment was when I joined JDC at the beginning of my first year. At the beginning, I was a little nervous – very nervous, actually – because I did not know much about case competitions, and the idea of presenting to real companies was very intimidating. However, I jumped at the opportunity, and it turned out to be a great experience. The best thing about it was meeting new people and learning new things from them. I got to see the different types of problems that companies face in the real world. Overall, I enjoyed the experience so much that I am participating again this year.  Read more ›

What Do You Want the Society to Think of You?

Tags: mentorship, job search, Perspective

Most of the time, we as students – and professionals – have to deal with a lot of pressure. Having to go to work, making sure we get good grades, trying to spend some time with our friends and family. All of that can become overwhelming, especially while we are trying to figure out what we actually want to do in life. However, I believe it is actually good to not know where we will be in five years, or exactly what our professional journey will be like. In my case for example, I’m a third‑year accounting student, but four years ago, I saw myself enrolling in the nursing program, simply because I thought it fitted my personality better. And guess what, I picked accounting, and I love it.  Read more ›

“I think that in order to get the most out of the 4 years at Telfer and to be as ready as you can by the time of graduation, you should always stay involved and be able to prioritize well. Having multiple activities and responsibilities at once can be overwhelming, and it can be difficult to determine what to focus on first.  Read more ›

CO-OP: Overcoming the Fear of the Unknown

Tags: COOP, Job Experience

Before entering my first CO-OP placement, I did not know what to expect. (I tend to freak-out over the unknown.) I imagined myself being overwhelmed with all the tasks and projects that I would be entrusted with. This fear was due in part to the fact that I had never experienced office work before. Having only worked in restaurants and retail stores, I did not feel prepared despite having attended all the necessary workshops and even a few 1-on-1 meetings with the CO‑OP staff.  Read more ›
