Embrace the unexpected

Name: Graydon Bell | Program: Industrial Engineering | Graduation Year: 7T5 |

Congratulations on graduating from U of T Engineering!

Be confident your education has prepared you well for your career. Not so much in what you know now but more about your heightened ability to grow and develop yourself further. Realize you are starting over again on a new, unpredictable journey of discovery, learning and opportunity.
I joined an excellent large company where the initial career path was clear. However, in subsequent years my path morphed several times in unexpected ways and diverse work locations – including foreign assignments. I could never have dreamed of the path my life would take over the years. Be prepared to embrace unexpected, unfamiliar opportunities and run with them! They will take you far through a rewarding life and career.
