"The most important thing is to be enthusiastic"
Business Development Specialist
My job is to help promoting research and innovation through creating internship opportunities by connecting industries, organizations and research institutions.
My workplace-Mitacs is a national wide organization with staffs of different background. We value work ethnics and different ideas can always be shared. I think in the agricultural field, people need to break the stereotypical perceptions and gain more appreciations toward the hard work that has been done by those who has the noble duty of “feeding the population and the planet”.
The most important thing is to be enthusiastic (love what you’re doing) and never afraid to reach out.
I am an adult LEGO fan, building self designed LEGO modules and doing miniature photography with LEGO minifigures never gets old for me.
I’d like to learn what was my mentee’s personal experience, how did she choose this field, what is she looking for and how/ if I could offer any help.
My learning goals also include to understand the needs of the current university students and how differently do they think than those who have already joined the workforce. My ultimate goal is to learn from my mentee and other mentors, and hopefully be a little helpful on my mentee’s future endeavors.
