TD Insurance Fellowships build confident professionals

Carly Wethersett received a TD Insurance Fellowship at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in 2004. Her story illustrates the diverse range of roles to which TD Insurance Fellows are eminently suited.

CCAE: What has been your career path in the 14 years since your TDI Fellowship?

Carly Wethersett: I am currently Director of Marketing and Communications for West Coast Machinery in Langley, BC. After completing my TD Insurance Fellowship in 2004, I stayed at BCIT for nine years. I started as an event assistant for BCIT Alumni Relations, then moved to a Program and Marketing Assistant role for the BCIT/UBC Biotechnology program, and then became a Marketing and Communications Strategist in the BCIT Marketing and Communications department for five years.

In early 2013, I moved to the private sector, and I’m very happy with my current role in a progressive, medium-sized construction and truck equipment company.

CCAE: What did you learn in your Fellowship year that has served you well in your career?

Carly Wethersett: It was my first full-time professional role and it taught me a lot about working with multiple stakeholders in a large organization. The networking was unparalleled due to the structure of the Fellowship and the expectation that we would continue to attend the CCAE National Conference annually.

CCAE: What advice do you have for aspiring TDI Fellowship candidates?

Carly: Advancement of education is a very fulfilling career path that encourages you to grow your knowledge and skills, and the TDI Fellowship is an excellent opportunity to jump-start your career in areas you may not yet be aware of. Be open to learning and take on every new project with enthusiasm and an optimistic attitude.
