“I valued the opportunity to gain practical industry experience with a team that appreciated my ideas and celebrated my accomplishments”
Working for Lake Harbour Co, I was fortunate to gain experience in a collaborative and innovative work environment. The work culture at Lake Harbour is built on a foundation of team work and kindness. I was encouraged to share my opinion in weekly team meeting and received input from others on my own work. I was not only given the independence to oversee projects, but was also provided support to ensure I was set up for success. This level of mentorship created an opportunity for me to understand Lake Harbour's systematic and strategic approach to all aspects of the business, both the entrepreneurial and engineering components. As a mechanical engineering student at the University of Toronto, I valued the opportunity to gain practical industry experience with a team that appreciated my ideas and celebrated my accomplishments.
