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? (or not) I haven’t decided on what to wear yet! I narrow my options down to two outfits: A black formal suit or a smart t-shirt with jeans. After a while I decide to go with both! I take the blazer from the suit and wear it with the shirt and jeans; casual yet professional. Perfect!
