Hello all. Used to frequent this site somewhat. I graduated Ivey not too long ago and work as an investment banking analyst in New York with one of the top firms. Feel free to ask me anything and I'll try my best to answer.
I've been where you are now and received a lot of guidance back then. Hoping to return the favor.
Hi, I am a 16 year old going into grade 11 this September and have absolutely no clue what I want to do or study in the future . I thought wanted to study health sciences but I don't actually have a passion for that area of study at all and I feel like whatever I choose to do I should enjoy it . The only things I could honestly say i'm passionate about is 1) Music : I don't sing and i'm not artistic either but i'm more interested in the business side of the industry . Also I am very passionate about civil rights / equality but i don't know what kind degree or career that would get me . Anything else would just be me passing time because there is nothing else i'm interested in. . Please help me out by giving suggestions of future careers and majors i can take based on my 2 interests ( anything helps !!!! ) . P.S i average around 85- 90 %
I'm searching for funds to assist with my hockey academy at Notre Dame. If anyone has contacts or ways to assist please keep me in mind. I am a twin and fulfilling my dream of taking sports to the highest level that I can achieve, with the support of my community and local donors it might be possible.
Ok so hi I'm back! (If you remember me from previous posts). Anyways, so I actually got hired at kumon, yay! I finished my 2 volunteering sessions. And will start working tommorow, the lady didn't ask for my bank info. So I assume she gives out cheques. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW KUMON PAYS THEIR EMPLOYEES??
Ok so here's the predicament I'm also working at McDonald's. And guess what? A have shift from each place at the same time. Great, anyways normally I would choose kumon because of the less hours, easier work and such. But I feel like useless employee there, because all I LITTERALLY do is grade work! Like another new employee got a chance to actually help the kids and they have me in the corner just grading work. And I even messed up on the fractions part of the test I did at my interview and my boss gave me sheets to do....she also complimented another girl on her performance working with the kids. And not me, I don't even get a chance to do that. my boss is nice and all, but I'm still afraid that IF I CHOOSE KUMON OVER MCDONALDS ILL END UP GETTING FIRED FROM KUMON and be JOBLESS! BUT I ESSENTIALLY WANT TO WORK AT KUMON.
WHICH JOB SHOULD I QUITTT???? WILL MCDONALDS FIRE YOU FOR NOT SHOWING UP TO A SHIFT?
ok, so I have a interview at Kumon in a few weeks (long time i know). Anyways, the lady didnt email me any specifics about the interview other than date and time.
So, should i bring my REPORT CARD? my grades arent stellar, i only got a 85 in math, 79 in french, 80 in history and 81 in gym. PLUS my french teacher decided to give me a few "s" in the behavior section, probably because i didnt participate enough in class.
SO I FEEL BRINGING MY REPORT WILL HURT ME IN THE INTERVIEW RATHER THAN GIVE ME AN ADVANTAGE.
i WOULD HAVE BROUGHT MY HONOR ROLL CERTIFICATE, BUT I LOST IT.
Anyways, I am pretty good at math and english and i really want this job! should i just NOT bring my report card? I like my math mark, i just feel its not enough.I ALSO HEARD YOU HAVE TO TAKE A TEST?? before your hired. IS THIS TRUE AND WHAT IS ON IT?
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR ANSWER
Heey everyone. I'm going into grade 12 this year and I am slighly freaking out. So I've been perusing through this site lately and I think it's just freaking me out even more. I really like business (at least I think I do), but I'm worried I won't get a job. There's so many people saying that the business industry is really saturated and that a business degree is one of the most common nowadays. Even at my hs, so many people are going into business. Plus, my mom keeps telling me I'm going to have a hard time getting a job in business because of all the competition. Also, people on yconic keep saying that it's important to get into a top tier business school, but my average last year was around an 88% and I'm not sure if I can get my average up to an 90 this year. I'm for sure gonna work my butt off but that doesn't guarantee that it will happen. Then there's that post on here called like why are business students so optimistic??? which gives me more anxiety.
I don't know if I'm making the right decision by going into business. I think I still have time to switch into nursing? I took uni bio11 last year, so that would mean I would have to take chem11 first semester, and then bio12 and chem12 second semester. Is nursing less saturated than business and am I more likely to get a job? I'm not the biggest fan of the medical industry, but then again business isn't really my main passion either.
Sorry for the extremely long post. I just need peoples' opinions on this. I'm a mess, literally. It's just everything is coming up so quickly and I thought I had my goals planned out, but now I'm contemplating and having second thoughts. Please no harsh comments. Thanks in advance..
I'm narrowing down my choices for programs that I plan to apply to this fall and was wondering if anyone could provide insight on the Health Studies program at Waterloo. Is it similar to the Health Science program at McMaster? Also, does it deliver a medical based science education or more of a social based science?
How do the Health Science/Studies programs compare to the Medical Science program at Western?
Thank you for anyone who answers and helps my selection for this year.
Hello! I know there is a link for students to get free Microsoft Office, however, when I entered my yorku email it says that it cannot sign me up. But when I tried it without the "my" in "my.yorku.ca", it worked (my.yorku.ca is the new email for undergrads this year). Of course I cannot get the link :c I'm a first year student, so I don't have the old email account.
Since everybody in my school is wanting to become engineers because of the money it pays and the demand for it would it not be smart to major in something else? I always wanted to become a lawyer and I enjoy classes like law and philosophy but a lot of people have told be that the legal market is stale right now and it would be a bad decision. Won't all of these huge tech companies need lawyer to defend them? I just want to make the right choice and not be screwed for my future.
I'm starting my second year of high school and I'm thinking of making some money for my self. So I was wondering where the best places to work at and I was thinking of working on the weekend or something like that. Also, for my resume should I say that I volunteer for a PLASP program. And by the way, I live in Canada.
This fall I will be enrolled in Medical Science at Western University. And I am wondering which elective to choose? To be honest, I am completely lost on this whole course selection process, any clarification would be greatly appreciated!
some relevant electives I'm taking are calculus, physics, and linear algebra. do you think my other courses in health science could count as mandatory electives that uoft engineers also have to take? also do you think it's easier to switch to mcmaster engineering after first semester and then to uoft engineering?
I saw this thread last year and thought it was worth while to do! For anyone applying to 4 or 2 year programs.
1. Which school(s) are you applying to?
2. What other programs are you applying to as your back up?
3. What average are you aiming for your final year?
EXTRA - I want current Nursing students to be included as well! Tell us where you go, where you applied to and what your GPA in Grade 12 was or post secondary if thats what your doing right now. Also, a few pointers, tips and guidance is always great!:cheers:
1. I want to go to McMaster (4 year), Queens (4 year or 2 year), Western (2 year), UofT
2. Nursing, and nothing else!
3. I had mid 80's in high school and currently have a 3.1 from Uoft B.A second year
Hi I am going into grade 12 this September. Searching the universities, I found that IR and business attracted me. I know the top tier business schools are tough to get in. How about UofT social science program? Do I have to complete any essay to get into the UofT social science? And how about job market for IR students? I heard that business and IR kinda related.
I am student from Switzerland trying to transfer to business schools in Canada. Been listing out choices......but I'm stuck at deciding the priority of Beedie, Telfer and Ted Rogers...Can anyone here tell me which one is better in terms of reputation and employment in Canada? Which one of them has a better coop program? Thanks!!!
