CBC Metro Morning: WCM Job Shadow Day

CBC Morning | April 07, 2017
Baystreet

"When I was in school, I didn't know what I wanted to do when I grew up, especially in high school and access to information certainly wasn't as prevalent as it is today with the Google searches and use of the Internet. When I was in my second year of business school, I was exposed to the financial services industry and the capital markets industry and that's where I really changed course and decided to go into financial services. The real value about today is the opportunity for these grade 12 students to really be exposed to these types of careers very early on so that they can be informed and make an educated decision when they are heading into University about what a career in capital markets is really like." - Job Shadow Day Capital Markets Professional.
