I think it’s extremely beneficial and inspiring to be able to hear the stories of these women who attended the same university as I am currently, and am grateful I participated in the meeting and unlearn all I thought I knew about the accounting and finance world.

Learning how to network and stand out!

Hi, I’m Nicholas B. and I’m in my 1A term of the Accounting and Financial Management (AFM) program. The story I have for you is one of seizing an opportunity and achieving greatness. Anyone can get lucky, but it takes a true Waterloo Warrior to make their own luck and ensure greatness.

How our awesome team pulled off AFOW this fall

This year’s Accounting and Finance Orientation Week (AFOW) was the most difficult one we’ve hosted, but, with the combined effort from all of our 17 members, we successfully overcame many challenges.

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!

Taking steps to a successful co-op work term

Attending this workshop was helpful because I was able to analyze my character traits more in-depth and establish what my strengths are. Coming out of Steps to a Successful Co-op I feel that I have a better grasp on how I work best, what my strengths are, and how I can be successful in my co-op work term!

Throughout the meetings we had during the week of the AFM 415: International Study Course to New York City, I had the opportunity to interview professionals from a variety of industries ranging from accounting, finance, consulting and entrepreneurs.

Often, I believe sports fans are too critical on their respective teams without truly understanding the logistics behind managing them. Which is why it was awesome to gain insight towards the challenges, struggles, and excitement of being part of managing such a major league sports team from  Assistant General Manager (GM) Don Fishman of the Washington Capitals. 

Co-op Ready brought me a step closer to getting a co-op job

With a co-op work term coming up, many of us are worried but also excited about the accompanying recruitment and application process. I know I speak for many people when I say this: Applying to your first co-op job can be daunting — but trust me, you’re not alone!

A great thing about the School of Accounting and Finance (SAF) is how they are always there to support students.
