Alumni Answers: What do you love most about your career?

January 14, 2019 — 

Gig. Nine-to-five. The daily grind.

There’s many names for it, but we all do it: work. This month, as the U of M’s largest career fair rolls through campus, our students will be thinking a lot about the jobs they want to take on post-graduation.

To inspire their future endeavours, we want to share with them just how great the working world can be. So tell us: what do you love most about your career?

Do you create cool things, or make a difference in peoples lives? Do you get to meet fascinating people or travel to exciting places? Perhaps it brings personal satisfaction by feeding your mind and soul. Or maybe it just feels like you’re having fun all day.

Let us know in the comments below or email alumni_answers [at] umanitoba [dot] ca by Feb. 1, 2019.

We’ll post our favourite answers  on Feb. 6, so visit the alumni network page to see if your story was included!

Alumni Answers is our way of building community with our alumni by sharing memories, ideas, and opinions with one another. Every month, we’ll pose a new question to make us ponder, laugh, or learn together.  Want to get next month’s question sent straight to your inbox? Email alumni_answers [at] umanitoba [dot] ca with “Sign me up!” in the subject line.
