In The Works – Episode May 17, 2021

Program: In The Works

Length: 30 minutes

In this episode, David and Lawrence reflect on what they learned at Career Services' recent career conference, It's your move: Navigating a new world. We also chat with special guest Preet Dhesi (BComm '15, Accounting) and explore the realm of investment banking. After a few years working in accounting at a Big Four firm, Preet had his "a-ha moment," when he realized his true aspirations lay elsewhere. He made his career transition to investment banking, joining the team at BMO Capital Markets, where he currently works as an investment banking associate. Preet describes how and why he made the leap, and why getting involved with his interests during university helped lead him to his dream job. Later, Lawrence and Liliana discuss The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook, written by Kristin Neff and Christopher Germer, and reveal tips for cultivating your own self-compassion and its related benefits.
