Humans of Telfer – Helen

“The greatest thing Telfer helped me realize is that there are always ways to make connections and to create opportunities for yourself.

You are more than capable in turning small, seemingly meaningless interactions or experiences into tangible, career opportunities.

Finding a job never really ends, ultimately everything you do- from the LinkedIn invite to a recruiter, to frequently attending professor offices hours, or introducing yourself to a stranger in a class— broadens your network. 

You never know who could end up referring you to a job, introduce you to a hiring manager, or even hire you for your first co-op placement!”

– Helen Wang, 3rd-year accounting student

Inspired by Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York, this weekly feature of the Telfer Career Blog will contain photography of individuals from the Telfer School of Management community and a corresponding narrative that gives us a glimpse into their lives.
