What have you learned so Far?
Being at Ivey allowed me to become much more professional in terms of how I dress, how I speak and how I present. Ivey also helped me to develop my analytical skills through its case-based teaching method.
What has one highlight of your Ivey Experience been so far?
Every single 48 has been a highlight in my Ivey Experience as we get to work closely with students from different backgrounds and are able to share our unique thoughts and perspectives.
What advice do you have for incoming HBA students?
Grades aren't everything. Networking and developing relationships are equally important, whether it's with your section mates or with recruiters at info sessions.
How has Ivey’s Career Management set you up for success?
Ivey's Career Management was very helpful during my time at Ivey as they helped me improve my resume and cover letter and helped me prepare for interviews.
What was it like coming into the Ivey classroom environment?
It was scary and intimidating at first because I didn't know most of my section but it wasn't long before I developed close relationships with them.
Working with section mates is one of the best resources but professors are always willing to help as well.
