Josh Boothroyd is a third-year Bachelor of Commerce student who is joining the Management Career Services team as a Communications and Special Projects Assistant for his fall work term. He’s looking forward to incorporating some of the concepts he’s been learning both in-class and during his first work term in his new role.
Josh credits attending many of the events hosted by Management Career Services (MCS), including fall’s Career Days industry and employer information sessions, with helping to guide his work-term search strategy and preparation:
“By getting involved with some of MCS’ events, I’ve been able to understand some of the job functions and industries that I’m interested in pursuing, and what I want to gain from my work term experiences. These events teach you critical skills like networking and interviewing, and help to prepare you in determining your career interests.
Having attended some of these events before my first work term, I can say first-hand that they are not something you want to miss. We’re fortunate as students to be afforded the chance to receive such an in-depth understanding of the business world as part of our undergraduate degree, so it’s really important that we make the most out of the opportunities that are available to us.”
Get involved with Career Days this fall by coming out to employer information sessions, taking a Power Hours workshop or attending a student panel or industry networking event!
