“As I am finishing up my undergrad here at the Telfer School of Management, I realize that I have learned so many invaluable lessons that apply not only to just school but to life in general. In short, meet as many people as possible, inside and outside Telfer. You never know who you may connect with and whether they can help you or not in your career goals.
What you put into your experience here is what you will get out. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to understand very clearly your values and career goals and let that guide you through your years in Telfer. While doing this, though, remain open to other fields that you may be interested in. Have as much fun as possible and get involved. Good luck to everyone graduating and to everyone I have met that helped enrich my experience through the years!”
