Victoria Lawther is a fourth-year commerce student at Dalhousie who also serves as RBC student ambassador this fall. She completed all three of her work terms at RBC where she has built a valuable network of contacts, created a platform to launch her career after graduation, and had the chance to get involved in many charitable and exciting events.
A great example on how to utilize your work terms for future success, Victoria says that Dal’s commerce co-op program “has allowed me to explore several disciplines within business and focus on my individual interests. The opportunity to obtain real world experience through co-op rotations has been a valuable asset to my learning by being able to take what I was taught in the classroom and apply it to real life situations. I have been able to obtain new skills that have prepared me to excel in my career after graduating.”
On her student ambassador role, Victoria says that she is “responsible for promoting RBC events and co-op, new grad, and internship opportunities as well as sharing my RBC experience on campus. I’m always looking to engage with students and refer quality candidates to the RBC Campus Recruitment Team.”
Victoria’s final piece of advice for new business students: ”start your job search early and take advantage of as many resources as possible. Some unexpected opportunities can come from getting involved and networking!”
RBC and their recruitment team will be on campus Thursday, October 13th for 1-to-1 meetings with students, followed by an information session. If you want to meet individually with a member of the RBC team to discuss what the future might hold for you, email Kelly.Tracey@dal.ca and be sure to check myCareer for additional information.
