Recruitment at Ryerson – My alma mater

I have been working with fellow intern and Chair of Recruitment, Natalie, to arrange an OLIP presentation at Ryerson University – my alma mater. I thought it was important not only to facilitate OLIP’s exposure but also ensure that the program becomes accessible to students in disciplines outside of politics, public policy and administration. I would very much include Urban Planning in this category of disciplines with principles very much related to and dependent on the political process at Queen’s Park. If this presentation at Ryerson inspires students to include OLIP as a viable post-graduate career option which would add value to their professional experience…then I think we have done our jobs as ambassadors of the program. As we near the half-way point in this internship, with one MPP placement, numerous meetings with distinguished professionals and a Quebec City-Ottawa trip under our collective belt…it becomes increasingly clear that we have been fortunate in gaining access to an invaluable network of people and resources which will grant us a competitive advantage in our professional pursuits. I am looking forward to reassuring Ryerson’s political science, policy, public administration and especially the urban planning students that they are in fact more than potential applicants but OLIP interns-in-training.
