Surya RC (he/him)
Business Development Specialist, Graduate Employment
Hello, I am Surya Ramanathan Chockalingam, you can call me Surya. I am a Business Development Specialist, Graduate Employment at Yorkville University. My work is towards building partnerships between Yorkville University and potential employers to help students and graduates find employment opportunities.
Moving to a new country and finding a job that you love is never an easy journey. But with hard work, determination, and a bit of luck, I am grateful to have landed in a role that not only allows me to utilize my skills but also to make a positive impact on the lives of students.
Prior to my move, I spent 30 years in Dubai and call it home. I have always had an interest in building relationships and businesses, marketing and growth, and had the opportunity to be an entrepreneur in the ed-tech sector.
When I’m not working, you’ll find me with my wife and son exploring and seeking new adventures together. My interests include movies, tv-shows, formula 1, football (soccer), and reading non-fiction!
