If you have chosen to study at the Telfer School of Management, you have come for a reason. Maybe you have a specific dream job in mind, or have a general plan to work in the business field, or maybe you even plan to create your own business. Whatever your goals, the Telfer Career Centre offers many resources to help you succeed in achieving them.

Are you unsure of what you want to do with your business education?

Look no further than the Self-Understanding, Career Testing and Planning workshop. This workshop will help you to analyze your personality and interests to assist you in finding potential career paths that could be a good fit for you. I had a great experience taking this workshop. The personality tests provided me with a better understanding of myself and of what I wanted in a future job. I was able to use this information to help choose an option at Telfer that I enjoy.

Do you want to know more about what professionals are doing in your field?

Attending networking events, speaker series, and office tours offered by the Career Centre are great ways to meet professionals in your chosen field and gain insight into what they do. By attending, you could potentially determine if the jobs these people are doing might be of interest to you. Either way, these types of events are a great way to make connections in the business world and learn something interesting.

Do you want to build your professional skills?

The Telfer Career Centre offers a great number of workshops and clinics to help you to improve and diversify your professional skills. Whether you are looking to improve your resumé or find out new ways to be creative with your LinkedIn profile, the Centre has ways to support you.

If you are looking for a more one-on-one experience, think about booking an appointment with a career counselor or relationship manager, or drop in to visit one of the Career Centre ambassadors on Fridays during our office hours. The ambassadors can help you with resumés, cover letters, LinkedIn critiques, interview tips and practice, and even networking advice. By using the tools offered by the Career Centre, you will be able to round out your business education by gaining the necessary skills you need to succeed!

The Telfer Career Ambassadors offer peer-to-peer advising on Fridays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in DMS 2111 (from September to November and from January to March).
