Business students get in shape for job search at Goodman Career Boot Camp
Published on April 28 2014
“Do you think there are opportunities in the accounting sector for a finance student?”
Tanveer Milglani, a second year BBA co-op student, is networking with employers at the Goodman Career Boot Camp, a two-day career conference. It’s the end of day two and Miglani, dressed in a suit and tie, has already attended two employer panel presentations, two networking sessions and taken part in eight “circuit” sessions about resume screening, your personal sales pitch and your online brand. Instead of being exhausted, he is excited.
“I’m pumped that I’ll be applying for jobs properly,” Milglani said. “The first thing I’m going to do is work on my resume. It is all about standing out from the competition.”
Milglani is one of the 50 undergraduate and graduate business students attending the post-exam event, which is organized by the Career Development Office of the Goodman School of Business and sponsored by CGA Ontario.
