As a part of the CMS team for over 10 years, I have had the opportunity to work with a team of experienced professionals that not only pride themselves on providing the best possible assistance and services to students but also are constantly trying to improve in those areas. Working in this type of team motivates me to consistently perform at a high level and challenge myself to improve my contributions to the team as well as to the students who use the services provided by CMS.
Another important part of my role as a Career Advisor is working with the student associations for my disciplines (JMAS and JHMA). Every year the student leaders take on new challenges and continuously set the bar higher for what the association can accomplish. The work ethic and determination of JMAS and JHMA students makes me proud to be able to collaborate so closely with them.What is truly rewarding is working with students and witnessing their progression from the moment they first meet with me to when they graduate and have successfully found a great career opportunity.
Being able to build and maintain strong relationships with the students and student associations which choose to work with CMS is important to me, personally, and the CMS team as these students go on to represent the John Molson School of Business in industry and are our greatest ambassadors. Helping students find the right opportunity in industry and seeing them achieve a high level of success is probably the most satisfying aspect of my role and is a major factor in keeping a high level of motivation to improve CMS and helping students.
