As September quickly rolls in, students are busy starting the 2017/2018 academic school year. After a relaxing, fun-filled summer, you might start to feel overwhelmed trying to get back into your usual routine. Or maybe this is your first year as a University of Ottawa student and you don’t know where to start. Don’t worry, we’re all in this together!
The Telfer Career Centre offers Telfer students a wide variety services to help boost their professional skills. Some of the services offered include workshops, company information sessions, peer-to-peer mentoring, and networking events. Students can meet one on one with a Career Counsellor, a resumé Reviser, or a Relationship Manager to practice interview skills, to improve resumés and cover letters, and/or to ask questions.

We are always recommending students to get involved and make your time here worthwhile. Another way to do so is to be a part of one of the Career Centre’s programs. There are mentorship and development programs such as the International Career Mentorship Program, the Telfer Capital Markets Mentorship Program (CMMP), the Profession of Management Consulting Program (PMCP), and internship and volunteer Programs including the Connexions Program, the Telfer BCom Internship Program, the Hong Kong Experiential Learning Initiative Program, and the Ambassador Program. All of these programs are great resumé builders and catch the eye of employers.
If you are a student getting ready to graduate, don’t forget that it’s never too late to get involved. The Career Centre is organizing a networking event for you called Telfer Connects. It will be held on September 21st, where third- and fourth-year students will meet with employers and get the chance to hand out resumés. This is an amazing opportunity that you should definitely not pass up.
The Telfer Career Centre has many resources for new as well as mature students. The staff and Ambassador Team is here to help you succeed. We can’t wait to meet you all and hope to see you at our upcoming events. Don’t forget to follow our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook account for exciting news and events!
