Have you heard about the Connexions Internship Program?

Have you heard about the Connexions Internship Program? It is an unpaid internship program that allows you to gain experience. This program is an alternative for all students who want to gain experience but who are not enrolled in CO-OP or in the BCom Internship Program. Connexions internships are unpaid, and instead of compensation you will receive three credits, which is equivalent to one of your program courses. Read more ›


Humans of Telfer - Conor

"Being a TA for the Business Communication Skills course (ADM 2381) has allowed me to help students develop useful public speaking skills and to effectively prepare them for all types of presentations they might encounter. It has also allowed me to have a noticeable impact on other students’ skills and confidence in terms of presentations. Seeing the progress some students make and the skills they develop throughout the duration of the course is really impressive." Read more ›


My Experience at Telfer Connects

I got a chance to see the event from two different perspectives and would love to share my experience with you. Read more ›

Humans of Telfer - Natalie

"Being a student at Telfer meant having access to all 13 clubs that are a part of Telfer. From the first day I heard about CASCO, I knew this was the club I wanted to join because the club’s main purpose is to raise money for CHEO. Being on CASCO’s Sponsorship team has given me the opportunity to work with professionals from various industries whose companies believe in the importance of corporate social responsibility. Together, we raise even more money for CHEO with each passing year. Being on the CASCO team has enriched my Telfer experience through the lasting friendships I’ve made with my teammates, and the business relationships I’ve created with industry professionals."
