Recent McGill Alumni will attend to share their valuable insights with students in a Speed Mentoring Event, providing students with the chance to meet and talk with professionals from a diverse range of fields who have used their BAs as a springboard to launch their careers. Hearing about the routes that others have taken can be helpful to a student contemplating their own career options.

Prior to becoming a public servant in 2020, I completed my English Literature B.A. at McGill University. From 2017-2020, I worked and volunteered with seven Montreal non-profit organizations, focused on serving kids (0-12), seniors (55+), and adults challenged by social isolation.

Camille Labat

Camille recently joined the IT consulting firm Synechron to support their strategic growth within Canada. As the new senior site lead in Motnreal, she is responsible for leading the onsite operations and logistics of the Montreal Delivery Center, which is currently in development. She is ensuring that North American clients’ needs are met with the highest quality possible, by notbaly placing Montreal talent on their projects. She began her career at Ayming Canada, where she oversaw building a new department and team that matched the companies’ projects to government subsidies. Following this, Camille worked at Eyful, a medtech startup, as an Operations Manager where she implemented their non-dilutive strategy, assisted in their capital fundraising efforts, and oversaw the hiring of their design team. She also oversaw the company’s daily operations and made sure that processes were built to sustain scalability and adapt to rapid growth.

She graduated from her MA in 2022.  Throughout her undergraduate and graduate studies, Yasemin worked in various positions spanning research, early childhood education, and the non-profit field. Yasemin currently works as a Partnerships Manager on the National Reconciliation Program at Save the Children Canada. Her job entails project and relationship management with Indigenous partners across Canada for rights-based and community led programming and initiatives to support First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children and youth.  Having recently experienced the job search process and transition from academics to a career, Yasemin is looking forward to sharing her experiences and supporting current BA students.

Mia Ryu

B.A. International Development Studies and minor in French Language & Literature (grad 2020)

I am an Import Specialist and have been working in the Global Supply Chain industry for 2 years. In 2021, I joined DHL Global Forwarding, which is one of the top Freight forwarding companies. I am in charge of DHL's global and local clients' inbound commercial goods from worldwide origin to Canada, such as arranging transportation, filing customs documents, and communicating with the CBSA and the shipping line to assure that trade compliance and customer satisfactions are upheld.  Although my B.A. did not directly contribute to getting this job, I believe that my degree is a solid basis for my career. I acquired strong analytical and communication skills both in English and French in university, and my interest in international affairs led to this industry. I get to collaborate and communicate with colleagues around the world who export commodities to Canada to ensure all international regulations are adhered to.  As my career progresses and I gather more knowledge and experience in my field, I have set my sights on one day advancing by acquiring an MBA. Also, I dream to work for an International Organization such as World Trade or ICAO.
