Hi my name is Areeb! I am a Pakistani-Canadian, grew up in Toronto, Canada, and moved to Vancouver a few years ago for University. Currently finishing up my final year at the Beedie School of Business, concentrating in Management Information Systems and completing the Business Analytics and Decision Making (BADM) certificate.

After completing an Internal Transfer to the Beedie School of Business, I worked as a Junior Consultant then as a Team Lead Consultant at Axis Consulting. I've also worked as a Community Advisor for 2+ years at SFU Residence & Housing.

I'm currently in my third term as a Business Analyst in the Business Improvement team at Ledcor. I hope to continue pursuing a career as an internal consultant after completing my undergraduate degree while exploring opportunities to work internationally.

Career Advice: Be proactive! Rather than waiting for perfect moments, seize opportunities without hesitation and disregard all doubts about your readiness. You'll never feel 100% prepared but do it anyways.

Hi fellow peers! I’m a 4th-year business student at SFU concentrating in Management Information Systems and pursuing a Business Analytics and Decision Making certificate. I am an experienced digital marketer with over 3 years of experience and proficiency in content marketing, e-commerce, graphic designing, analytics & project management.

I have previously worked in various marketing roles whether that be through club involvement or co-op. I have been heavily involved in the Beedie community and had the opportunity to be a part of multiple student clubs including Axis Consulting, Young Women in Business, and Student Marketing Association. Currently, I'm working as a Marketing Intern as a part of the Marketing Internship Program at TELUS. Before TELUS, I worked as a Front Doors E-commerce - Digital Marketing Co-op at Intuit for a term of 8 months.

My passion for community involvement, personal development, and networking encouraged me to volunteer as a Career Peer for CMC. As someone who has gone through the internship-seeking process, I would love to share my experience, tips and tricks with you!

Career Advice: Get involved! You will be surprised to see how much you can learn from getting involved in a student club, finding mentors, attending events, or volunteering in the community. Take these opportunities that are available to you outside of the classroom.

Hi! I’m Emily, a Beedie student concentrating in marketing and MIS. I came into university with no idea what I wanted to do after graduation, but I quickly developed an interest in strategy and analysis after competing in case competitions.

I’ve completed co-ops with multiple organizations across different industries, including Beedie’s CMC, Traction on Demand/Salesforce, and Procter and Gamble, where I’ve been invited to return for a full-time role. Within the Beedie community, I’ve been a TA for several classes, competed in multiple case competitions, and have been part of BASS and SMA.

I’m passionate about career development, and love helping others with their career journeys. Feel free to come chat about anything career or school related!

Career Advice: Don’t be afraid to reach out to people for advice or questions! Many people are willing to help out, and the worst someone can do is say no.
