I was not exactly sure what to expect about university or co-op. Job application? Who is she? Despite all of this, the Launch Your Career conference organized by SAF opened my eyes to a wide array of opportunities that I would have been too scared to think about months ago.

I know how daunting the thought of a job search can be. For this very reason, as September came to an end, I was eager to attend the Launch Your Career event!

I think that participating in and winning the Schulich RISE business strategies case competition has showed me the benefits of pushing myself outside of my comfort zone and being confident in my abilities!

…What a wild ride!

The RISE competition is Schulich's multi-disciplinary case competition, in which delegates compete in a case simulation in a discipline of their choice and present it to industry professionals. The 5 disciplines that teams competed in were: Accounting, Corporate Social Responsibility, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, and Strategy. My team participated in the corporate social responsibility discipline.

Making a lasting impression

This year, one of my favorite segments of Co-op Ready was Nailing the Interview with Dinesh Balakrishnan. Not only did he have some amazing tips, but he made sure to keep the audience engaged throughout the segment. As a very informed professional, he provided us with great insights, as most of us work hard on our applications but rarely do we think ahead about the interview process.

Making a lasting impression during the interview is key!
