“I was initially worried that as a student coming from out of town, I wouldn’t have the same advantage or connections as others when it came to finding a job in the co-op process or joining clubs on campus. Luckily, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Through the networking events hosted by Telfer, including specific events by the Telfer Accounting Club and the Career Centre, I was able to meet so many new people, make lasting friendships, and secure a great co-op position at Deloitte. I truly feel that alternating between work and school during my undergrad has been beneficial in a multitude of ways. Applying real-life concepts in classes from my job experience, as well as using theoretical knowledge taught during lectures while on the job has allowed me to develop both as a student and a professional.”
