My contact information:
Who am I ?
oI am current student at Centennial College.
oStudying Business Administration-Human Resources.
oI am a highly determined and dedicated person who takes
pride in their work.
oMy aspirations are to complete my education beyond my
diploma that I will receive at Centennial and move
towards a degree in Commerce.
This is my Education
o My education is my number one priority in my life right now. Studying has
become more than just a task in life that I must complete to fulfill my
qualifications but my goal for my self improvement. Over the past couple
of months I have taken in many things from the courses that I have
engaged in so far. I have learned to manage my work load and also enjoy
what I am learning and take from it. Studying at Centennial I believe has
and will help me excel and develop my career goal.
My Work Experiences
o During the last year of high school I chose
to get a portion of my credits by doing a
co operative credit. This included a five
month period, five days a week for three
hours. This co operative placement was at
the Bank of Montreal.
o Throughout the five months period I was
assigned to do task such as; filing,
appointment booking, labeling, faxing and
other clerical work. This photo represents
a daily activity that took place at my
placement, labeling. It involved the
filing/labeling of documents for the bank
which takes place in the labeling room on
a program called TabQuick. My time at
BMO taught me many skills and helped me
develop my overall communication,
multitasking, and customer service skills.
o For three years during my time at high school I volunteered for The Inside Ride. This is a
in door cycling fundraiser that travels across the country to different participating schools
that raises money in support of those families and children that have been impacted by
cancer. This was something I looked forward to every year and I really enjoyed being
involved with something that makes such a important impact on lives. As a volunteer I was
involved in setting up the fundraiser and also being a reoccurring volunteer I helped with
educating new volunteers. During the activities of the fundraiser I was in charge of
managing the teams time records which would in turn determine the prizes they receive as
contributors. As result of this volunteering I learned that experiences not only come with
doing something that relates to your career but participating in something that is socially
responsible which can also lead to expanding your work or career skills.
Gaining the Skills
o As apart of my volunteering
credits I decided to do a week
long workshop at my town’s
youth centre. This workshop
was based on gaining a
leadership certificate. The
week long teachings included
activities to help build my
leadership with other
participants and at the end of
the workshop we spent a day
at our community centre
managing a function that was
about spreading awareness of
healthy eating. This activity
pushed me out of my comfort
zone and made me become
more open and sure of my
abilities to interact and
communicate with new people.
This workshop truly was a
benefit to me as a person and
has helped me become a more
confident person in my
surroundings and self.
o Being a student is about more than just
gaining the grades or the GPA. As a
successful student I need to step out of
my educational comfort zone and go
beyond the typical experience. The
LinkedIn presentation was a educational
presentation that focused on what is
LinkedIn and how LinkedIn can advance
our professional portfolios. This
presentation allowed me to understand
the importance of social media today and
it’s importance to our personal branding.
With the beginning of this social media
education, it has made me a advocate
for presenting yourself as a brand and
going beyond the traditional resume or
What Did You Get From This…About Me
o I hope to improve myself continuously.
o I am always willing to learn using different techniques.
o I have skills such as; customer service, multi tasking,
inventory control and administrative.
o I want to be apart of something that is important not
only to me but to others.
o And my education is my number ONE priority.
