Arts & Business grad’s career success

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

As was recently noted in the Daily Bulletin, Globe & Mail’s 2012 Canadian University Report ranks Waterloo the top university for students’ career preparation.  Among a wealth of stories about Canadian university life and beyond, the report includes a profile series ‘From Class to Career’ featuring recent Waterloo Arts & Business graduate Rebecca Kaster. Here is what it says:

As an arts graduate working in a technology-driven company, Accenture analyst Rebecca Kaster knows a thing or two about landing the right job. Kaster joined the global consulting firm in February after earning a degree at the University of Waterloo for German language and international business. She now uses these specialties on an Ontario public service Information Technology (IT) infrastructure project she’s working on where the vendor is a German company. Although only 23, Kaster has already travelled to Germany and Paris for business. “You can pick a new project, a new industry, and as long as you have the soft skills, you can pick up the knowledge and run with it,” said Kaster. “At Accenture, I’m impressed with how open people are.” Before joining Accenture, Kaster completed several co-op placements including positions at a major Canadian technology firm, and in finance and process engineering at a major Canadian bank.
