As the year draws to a close, we’re reflecting on our “Top Moments of 2013” at Management Career Services and celebrating some of the most notable milestones. What were your top moments? Here are a few of ours:
President Richard Florizone
Dalhousie has a new president. Richard Florizone was officially installed the 11th President of Dalhousie in October, 2013. The appointment as President also includes an academic appointment at the rank of Professor with tenure. We were excited when President Florizone chose Rowe School of Business, Faculty of Management for his academic appointment.
MCS launched a new website in 2013 and we’re looking forward to rolling out more great new content in 2014. Stay tuned!
National Mentoring Program
“The Dalhousie National Mentorship Program won the 2013 Canadian Association for Career Educators & Employers (CACEE) Excellence in Innovation Leadership Development Award.” For more on this, read our blog post.
Halifax Corporate Tour
The Halifax Corporate Tour was so popular this fall that it was filled within four hours after registration opened. Due to the interest of students, another stream was added. Thirty students registered for the tour which took them to eight Halifax organizations which included: Aon, Bell Aliant, Citco, Corporate Research Associates, Chronicle Herald, Eastlink, Extreme Group, and Nova Scotia Business Inc. If you missed the fall tour, don’t worry, there will be another Halifax Corporate Tour in the March 2014, with registration taking place in January. Don’t miss it!
