How to Make the Most of Your Internship

On August 8, 2018, ASPIRE hosted a successful “Student Panel and Networking Event” attended by students working in the Financial Services (FS) sector over the summer term. Six students, each working in a different FS organization – Aviva, CIBC, Intact Insurance, OMERS, RBC and TMX – participated on a panel to share their best advice with other students to make the most of the last month of their internship/co-op. The event was also an opportunity for student participants to: meet other students working across the FS sector and build their professional network; hear how other students have secured job offers; and learn networking techniques that can be applied in the office.
