Performance as a Learning and Research Institution

Career Ambition

Our performance in developing new—and expanding current—career-development activities and resources to help undergraduate and graduate students make seamless transitions from the classroom to the business world.

Recognizing achievement

  • Telfer School student Jade St-Laurent was named one of the 16 extraordinary women at the University of Ottawa. A marketing specialist, Jade was recognized by University of Ottawa president Allan Rock for her active and creative engagement in her school and for being an outstanding role model to other women. She was also our school’s first-ever class valedictorian, fulfilling this role at the June 2011 convocation.
  • The Telfer School Career Centre’s Career Successes celebration recognized the people and organizations whose close, harmonious relationships with our school helped bolster the career prospects of students. In 2010–2011, Top Contributor awards were happily given to:

Career Successes recognition recipients (L-R) Ruth Buchanan representing Dave Herbst of Canada Border Services Agency , Jennifer Bulman of Aurilia Consulting Services, 2 representatives from Public Works and Government Services Canada, Nancy Morris of NancyMorris.com, Tyler Brown of Ernst & Young, Jeremy Armer representing Margaret Hambling of RBC.

Propelling careers

  • The Telfer School’s Career Centre signed an internship program agreement with Public Works and Government Services Canada. Under this agreement, several Telfer BCom finance students each year will gain valuable work experience at this vital federal department, and will also be in an ideal position to join PWGSC full-time upon graduation.
  • The Telfer MBA Career Management Program added a mentorship component designed to help students in the program chart courses for their futures. Through the program, mentors help students in a variety of practical ways, including identifying career goals, discussing management practices and share career lessons and experiences.
