THE GIST: JPtv decided to sit down with Danny Ko, a Manager of Financial Services at TD. After completing a BA in Sociology and History at the University of Toronto, Ko joined TD as a CSR – or teller – before working his way up through the ranks (his words, not ours!) to his current position. We spoke in depth with him about working in financial services at TD, and what it takes to break in and build a successful career. Sit down, kick off your shoes, and enjoy!
