Smart Girls Sweat: How One Young Professional Is Changing The Networking Game

Our founder Celine got a chance to do an interview about Smart Girls Sweat with Jasmine Williams at TalentEgg.ca. TalentEgg is Canada’s most popular job site and online career resource for students and recent graduates.

Read an excerpt below:

If you’re a student and new grad, networking is one of the best ways to get your foot in the door of a new career. But after awhile, the wine and cheese nights can get a little repetitive. And all that brie is certainly not helpful for young professionals trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. These are just a few of the many reasons Celine Tarrant took matters into her own hands and started an innovative networking initiative.

We caught up with Celine to learn more about her new project, Smart Girls Sweat.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Celine: I started my career at Walmart Canada in the DARE New Graduate Leadership program. I had the opportunity to rotate throughout the company and work on projects for different teams to learn more about the business. I’m currently an Associate Category Manager at Walmart Canada in ladieswear. It’s pretty awesome getting to buy clothes for a living! Outside of work, I love running, yoga, trying new fitness trends, and experimenting in the kitchen. I also love to travel. My most recent adventure was a trip to Brazil, and I’m looking forward to going to India next year!

So, what is Smart Girls Sweat?

Celine: Smart Girls Sweat is a “sweatworking” (working out + networking) group for professional women in the Greater Toronto Area looking to be inspired, meet like-minded people, grow their networks, and maintain an active lifestyle. We believe that professional success should never come at the expense of physical and mental well-being. Our goal is to contribute to the advancement of professional women by combining fitness and professional development to help busy women make the most of their time. We achieve this through events including group fitness classes, inspiring speakers, and networking sessions.
