Like most recent graduates, I had no idea what the corporate world would be like. Starting a career at an organization the size of RBC can be  daunting. However, this program connected me with managers and other RBCers that provided direction and support while learning new skill sets. RBC is committed to creating a diverse workspace that includes individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. I joined The RBC Royal Eagles, the Indigenous employee group, during my first week at RBC. I was set up with a career mentor who provided additional guidance that helped inaugurate me into the RBC community. ​​​​Thank you to RBC for providing support and helping me create a foundation that I will continue to build upon throughout my career.

My onboarding experience has been above and beyond my expectations as a new hire. From the first day at RBC, I quickly became immersed in the vibrant and diverse culture. It was truly special to feel valued for my expertise from day one. Working with Global Reconciliation Services has had an impact on my development and for the bank. From building financial models to business analytics, I am actively contributing to the future of RBC.

It was a stressful experience moving to a new city and starting a new career. However, with the support of my program manager, I had access to all of the necessary systems and equipment I needed, as well as a peer buddy within my team that I could go to if I had any questions. Overall, I had a positive onboarding experience.
