Humans of Telfer - Ibrahim

"I came to Telfer with an engineering background, and I enrolled in the Management Information Systems program before ending up in Accounting. So I had to make choices and I took advantage of the resources available to help me, three of which come to mind: being able to rely on the advice of qualified professors, the opportunity to be a teaching assistant — which helped me to be responsible and further my knowledge — and finally the academic specialists; it was through them that I was able to face job-related challenges and find an internship in an accounting firm with the Connexions Program. I find that Telfer helps students but also empowers them, thanks to the various opportunities offered. It is a solid feature that distinguishes it from other faculties and universities."

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

As a third-year Telfer student, this year was my first time coming to the event as a student attendee and at the same time as an ambassador for the Career Centre. 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."
