My Advice

"Don't be afraid to try out different different fields or change your mind completely. There is no timeline to follow!"

Ashley Turner

Position: Development & Communications Coordinator
Company: Thames Talbot Land Trust
City: London, Ontario, Canada


While pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Biology, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my degree. While completing my Master’s in Management of Applied Science, I had my eyes opened to how many different ways I could indirectly apply my scientific knowledge. I learned that many companies are seeking science graduates who also have the managerial knowledge for industry. I had decided I’d like to further explore the environmental sector, and had previous experience with non-profits, so I chose to do a co-op placement at the Thames Talbot Land Trust.
