"I had an opportunity to join the Ascend Training program, which was a fantastic way to get to know everybody around the bank, build a personal brand and understand what specific facet of the bank I was interested in joining."

​​​​​​​Vasu's Story

"In DAP, you get to bounce around to different teams at the bank, see what they're working on and gauge where your interests lie. I thought that was pretty cool because I didn't quite know what I wanted to do after graduating."

"I did not always know I wanted to work at a bank. What I did know is that I always wanted to be a leader, so finding a position where I could be in management was really important to me, and Commerce offered me a great opportunity to do that."
