Hi, I'm Sukhmani, a fourth year student at Beedie concentrating in Accounting. I have over 1.5 years of accounting experience, gained through roles with firms like BDO, KPMG and Motorola Solutions. I currently work as a Risk Consultant with BDO and will be pursuing my CPA at a public accounting firm post-graduation.
I received tremendous support from the Beedie Community during my job search process and am excited for the opportunity to pay this forward by becoming a Career Peer. Navigating your career, especially in the initial stages, is a rewarding albeit a challenging process, and as Career Peers, we are here to make this process a little easier for you. So, I encourage you to book a session to get all your career-related questions answered!

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.

When I graduated high school, I had trouble deciding what career path I wanted to pursue. I chose to explore business and commerce because of the agility, presence, and influence it has on our everyday lives.
Hey Everyone! My name is Fendi, and I am in my final year of study at the Beedie School of Business (BsB) concentrating in Management Information Systems (MIS) and Operations Management. I am also working towards a certificate in Business Technology Management (BTM). In my time at the BsB, I’ve had the opportunity to try a plethora of things from clubs and case competitions to campus jobs, with my most recent additions of a co-op placement and a career preparation program. In all of my experiences, I went in blind and with an open mind. As you can imagine, the learning curve was like climbing a mountain, but with towering boulders blocking the path. While I learned invaluable lessons and exponentially grew from each opportunity, in hindsight it would have been amazing to have a confidant to talk through my worries.
I am excited to join CMC as a Career Peer this semester and be the sounding board for any questions, interests, and curiosities you may have. I’d love to share my experiences, knowledge, and lessons learned so please feel free to reach out and connect!
Career Advice: Reach out! Seriously, don’t be afraid to ask and listen to different people’s journeys. Tacit knowledge, which is gained through living experiences, is worth it’s weight in gold.
