Insights from the Inside

“Being open about your work interests and what makes you happy will go a long way in developing your career in a direction that fulfills you. You may be surprised by how much others here want to help you get there.”

“Listen and hear because there are so many people in this company that have amazing stories to tell and lessons to teach. If you can come here and spend the first chunk of time listening and absorbing and learning, you will find your voice.”

“There is so much to learn so don’t be afraid to ask questions. Asking is okay! Be prepared to always learn something new. Be open.”

“Don’t be too reserved, get yourself out there. You can breathe and even if there are tight deadlines there is still a lot of flexibility to have fun.”

“Try to sit down with someone from each department you’ll be collaborating with and don’t be shy. Learn three new things about them, understand their process and how best you can work with them.”

“Take time to learn what the company does, as well as how your team works and operates within the bigger picture. Sometimes new people at a company want to change the world and dominate right away; that can be difficult without knowing the culture here.”

“Make time to get to know the senior staff, who are pretty available. You can learn from their experiences and when you need to present ideas to them they will know who you are because you have already started to build a relationship.”

“Build relationships with people that are meaningful to your role. For example, IT are people that can make your life easier when you need to call in a favour!”

“It helps to come with ideas but not to be one-track-minded. You need to be collaborative, open minded and a team player.”

“Be prepared to work hard! We work hard but we play hard. When you start you can’t help but get caught up in the energy right away; it pulls you in. When people leave I think they realize not every company has that pull.”

“Don’t be afraid to try new things. This is what sold me on this job.”
