Emily was a student at the Ivey School where she was in her final year of the Bachelor of Arts program. She had joined Lalani, O'Hagan & John where she worked on accounts. This work experience made her realize that accounting was not the career she wanted to pursue. She decided that she would work for a professional company. She choose investment banking and consulting as her career choice. She decided that she should meet someone who knows about this career to guide her through. She asked her classmates, who were experienced in these fields about their jobs, she needed to decide her career’s progression.
