Humans of Telfer – Nora

“As a 2nd-year student who has recently switched from Management to Finance, I am grateful for all of the opportunities Telfer has offered me. From participating in the Co-op program to joining many different clubs like the University of Ottawa Muslim Students Association, UNICEF, and uOsmile; my university experience has been both busy and enriching.

During high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do in the future. I decided to take my father’s advice on giving the Telfer School of Management a try. Telfer was no doubt the best choice for me. It created many opportunities for me that helped develop my career path. There are countless other reasons why the Telfer School of Management is a great school but the most important reason, in my opinion, is the wealth of resources offered by the Telfer Career Centre. It has helped me edit my resumes and rehearse for interviews numerous times. The Career Centre is an extremely important resource, and I encourage all Telfer students to use it. From its various workshops to the wise advice of its counsellors, the Career Centre has so much to offer. I still have a long way to go until my graduation, and I can’t wait to see where Telfer will take me in the years to come.”
