Discovery Day with RBC, MNP and TD
Ever wonder what life is like at some of Canada’s top employers? We kicked off the new season of Discovery Days by visiting three of Canada’s top employers: RBC, MNP and TD. Over 100 Post-Secondary Ambassador Program (PSAP) students were treated to office tours, recruitment information and advice, and the opportunity to network with members from various businesses within these organizations.
The day started with a visit to RBC, where the recruitment team gave a yellow-brick-road overview of the unpredictable path dynamic careers can take. The takeaway message being this: be open to every possibility as you’ll never know where the next turn can take you. After the talk, a few CPAs from RBC joined the group for open networking.
At MNP, students received information about MNP’s astonishing growth in Canada. CPA Ontario partnered with MNP to host delegates in a private event space in Assembly Chef’s hall where they were treated to food and networking with over 25 MNP staff. What’s more, following the event, MNP invited 5 PSAPs to attend job interviews.
Our final stop was at TD, where our hosts led a panel discussion on what CPAs in different business groups do at TD. The day was capped off with speed networking with CPAs rotating among small groups, so that everyone had a chance to meet each TD representative.
The event was a total success, but don’t take our word for it. Here’s what students had to say:
“It was such an amazing event! Met many business professionals, heard insightful personal stories, and created some lasting connections. I strongly encourage other students to join PSAP through CPA Ontario!” - Anukriti Kothari, a student from the Schulich School of Business
And our social media channels were buzzing too.
Lee Hujaj, from Ontario Tech University posted, “This was a long and exhausting day, but I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Met many new and interesting people, learned about three amazing businesses, any of which would be amazing to grow a career with.”
