Humans of Telfer – Joel

Question: Do you have any advice for students considering Telfer?

“Find yourself a mentor. For a business student, there is no greater asset than having a mentor looking out for you and telling you what opportunities you should pursue. Also, network. And by networking, I don’t mean hitting up all the Wine & Cheese events you can find, but talking to people. Talk to your classmates, talk to your professors, talk with the person next to you in the DMS elevator. Build your name and your brand, and opportunities will follow. Invite interesting people for coffee, and ask them for their advice. I guarantee it’ll be a better investment of your time than anything else!”

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.
