Mae Wincott, SAFE Work Manitoba

Job title:

Compliance Officer

In high school, I would have been voted most likely to:

write a novel 

The skill I rely on most in my role is:

decision-making

Q:  How did you find out about the kind of career you wanted to pursue?

I did not really know what I wanted to do in high school. History was my favourite subject, which led me to the thought that I might like to be a historian. To that end, I studied history at university and went to grad school for history. Eventually I realized that there are other paths for my interests and skills that I should consider. I learned of the career path when I started working in a compliance role a few years after I finished grad school. I applied for a position and was hired because of my “interesting resume” and because I knew how to effectively read, analyze, and present my findings. Over the years I have moved into different roles in the field because this career path fits well with my initial goal to pursue a career that requires asking questions and finding the answers.
