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!

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

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.

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.

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.
