Position: Sr. Account Specialist, Vancouver
Number one piece of advice she would give to someone starting the program: Take advantage of every opportunity that presents itself, no matter how unprepared you may feel. The guidance I’ve received throughout this program is superior to what I could have hoped for. When I make mistakes - often - my lead is always there to assist me and point me in the right direction. The program is the best first exposure to banking that I could have hoped for and I'm excited to see where it takes me.

How she describes her experience in the program: It's been great! The St. Albert team welcomed me with open arms and quickly made me feel right at home. I've learned a lot in the short time through structured learning, courses and from the exposure the team has given me to contribute to the business in a real way. This job isn't like a lot of entry-level jobs where you're uncertain of the impact you're making - from day one you're contributing to the bank in a real way.
