Mackenzie is a fourth year Business Management student who is passionate about entrepreneurship and innovation. She is the Vice President of Project Development at Enactus Dalhousie and also a Grad Year Representative for the Management Society. Mackenzie loves to be involved and be a leader in and outside of the Rowe building. This past summer she was a part of the C3 Mentoring Program offered through Management Career Services and worked at SickKids Foundation as a Finance Co-op student, generously sponsored by P&G. She is currently focused on finding a job with a start-up to learn the ins and outs a business while also strengthening her own skills, to one day start her own business.
“This past year I have attended information sessions for businesses like TJX and Write Your Best Cover Letter and Succeed In Your Job Interview workshops offered by Management Career Services. I wanted to attend these workshops to gain as much knowledge as possible before I lose access to such amazing resources.
More recently, I attended the Succeed In Your Job Interview preparation workshop, to make sure that I do everything before, during, and after an interview that will help me to be a top candidate for that position. While some parts of the workshop may have been a review of things a fourth year student like myself should know, I still learned new tips and practices.
Set aside time and attend these workshops because they prepare you to succeed in your job hunting and, ultimately, your career. Learning simple things like sending thank you cards or e-mails to your interviewers after an interview is very important. As well, learning to search your interviewers on LinkedIn before the interview can help you become a more attractive candidate. I recommend all students take advantage of these workshops because it doesn’t hurt to learn more.”
