Karim Pabani is a 2nd year Commerce student, majoring in Marketing. Upon arriving at Dalhousie Karim was eager to jumpstart his career goals. In the 1st year of his program, Karim participated in the Toronto Corporate Tour with hopes of gaining business knowledge and contacts in a city where he planned to work. Karim knew that he wanted to pursue marketing, but had little awareness of what specific areas of marketing entailed.
“The Corporate Tour gave me an inside perspective. I learned what companies are looking for in a young professional, as well as what it takes to be successful in their business. Overall I found that there were so many advantages of participating; I improved my networking skills while expanding contacts with employers and Dal Alumni. Regardless of a student’s year, major and/or career goals; everyone has something to gain by participating in a Corporate Tour.”
