ADVICE TO STUDENTS: 

Don't be discouraged if a volunteer opportunity, job, course or co-op is not what you had expected! Discovering jobs/fields of study that you do not enjoy can be just as valuable as finding something you are passionate about! Make connections in the real world, and seek out shadowing opportunities wherever possible, you never know where an experience will take you.
