CHRISTINE SJOLANDER
Director, Graduate Career Management Centre and Employer Engagement
Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University

Christine oversees the Graduate Career Management Centre and employer engagement strategy across both the undergraduate and graduate programs. With more than twenty years in career development services at both the undergraduate and MBA levels at Canadian and US universities, she brings a range of individual and group experience, a large corporate network, and a penchant for new ideas to her role. She is the primary contact person for EMBA and MOT students as well as for general questions about the CMC.  Her professional experience also includes contingency recruiting for leading biotechnology and technology companies in the United States. Christine holds an undergraduate degree in business and a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Alfred University, and is currently pursuing her Doctorate of Education at SFU.

When not at work, Christine can often be found curled up on the couch with her greyhound, Shirley, with a glass of Okanagan wine and this week’s journal articles in hand. A former Californian, she hasn’t come to terms with the rainy Vancouver winters, so she retreats to the beaches of Hawaii, Mexico, Napa Valley, or other warm climates whenever possible.
