My Visit with a Senior Manager at Deloitte

It’s the morning of the 29th of August and I hastily get ready for my interview with Vince Spadafora (BCom’04), a senior manager at Deloitte. It’s already 8 am and the possibility that I may be late for my 10:30 am meeting at Place Ville Marie starts to become more and more likely. Why you ask?

I take the blazer from the suit and wear it with the shirt and jeans; casual yet professional. Perfect!
