Becoming a peer mentor was an eye-opening experience

Through the Waterloo Ready program, I have been able to assist my mentees in preparing themselves for their first year at the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF). It has brought back a lot of memories and gave me the chance to reminisce as well.

My five helpful tips for working from home (WFH)

Matthew H

I’m going to be honest; I was a little nervous about working from home on my co-op term. As someone who had gotten used to getting dressed in business casual clothing and heading into an office, I had no idea what to expect.

Chasing my career goals while on co-op

Keidon G.

Hello, my name is Keidon, and I am an undergraduate student in the Recreation and Sport Business program at the University of Waterloo. I have been a co-op student at the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) for two terms now! Fall 2019 term, and spring 2020. My official job title is communications and external relations associate, and the role requires me to help share stories and connect with people inside and outside the SAF. This involved projects like managing social media and web pages, as well as giving tours, and assisting with events.

Similarly, to all businesses in the past several months, Microsoft also went through a transition phase because of COVID-19 (C-19). I was about three months into my internship as a Product Marketing Manager (PMM) for Microsoft when the transition to fully remote work started.

My name is Jared, and I am going into my second year in the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program at Waterloo. This summer, I decided to be a peer mentor for the Waterloo Ready program.

My Journey to the CFA Research Challenge Big Stage

We’re Young, We’re in Tax, and We’re Professionals

Deborah SAF student

Isolated cubicles and endless hours of routine number crunching – that’s the impression many people have of what working in tax entails. Through the Young Tax Professionals program, I learned how the profession continues to evolve with emerging technology and changing laws. What became crystal clear to me was that the opportunities in tax are truly endless and are not one-size-fits-all.

Preparing for the global stage

Isaac Wong

Isaac, a 4th year AFM student met with SAF to talk about his experience with this program and how it prepared him for the recent CFA Institute Research Challenge (IRC). "Every student coming into SAF had heard about the 2016 team’s win on the CFA IRC international stage with Canadian Tire. As a result, I was always keen to represent Waterloo on a larger stage and knew this was a great opportunity."
