BBA, International Bachelor of Business Administration, Schulich School of Business, 2015
Like many students, I believed I would enter the workplace with a clear path ahead of me and was frustrated when this didn?t happen. It took me a few years to shed this belief. What happened instead was that I tried on different roles either by choice or necessity to piece together a path. It is still a work in progress. My professional experiences in government intersect with my identity as a young person and first-generation immigrant. I am passionate about sharing my knowledge to support other students like me to navigate the workplace and define their careers.
During the session Alumni will share:
- Their personal career paths;
- How their university education is relevant to their particular position;
- The realities of sectors they work in;
- Tips and Strategies for entering the sector;
- Opportunities within their fields;
- Resources for connecting with professionals in that field.
