1. Leverage your Rotman Morning & Evening MBA Career Services’ career coaches, tools and resources

Students in the Rotman Morning & Evening MBA programs have access to a wide range of career services. I found career coaching for behavioural interviews crucial if you are looking to move your career in a different direction. Additionally, I strongly encourage everyone to leverage the many online tools and videos that are available to you through Rotman’s career services. As an example, this is an online seminar that will teach you a very effective framework to help you become much more efficient during your job search.

2. Network

I cannot stress how important this is; take the opportunity meet both alumni and non-alumni. The more you network, the better you will become at it. You will definitely get better at asking the right questions over time. As I went through this process, I learned quickly that meeting multiple people from one organization will give you a good feel for the culture of that organization, which is hugely important.

3. Preparation is key

The job search is a consuming process. Take advantage of Rotman’s career services to guide you through it. Make sure that you have a focused, tailored approach that will allow you to be effective in pursuing organizations and industries that you are truly interested in.
