Our meeting with former OLIP intern, Emma Stanley-Cochrane was particular insightful. Emma gave us tips on how to network, write resumes, and set up and prepare for informational interviews. Emma advised us to leave our pre-conceived notions about government at the door and instead to learn on the job. Currently employed at the Cabinet Office, Emma elaborated on her role as Information and Research Coordinator. It definitely left us with the impression that the Cabinet Office is a dynamic and exciting Ministry to work for. I find meetings with alumni very motivational and practical for us newbie interns as we set out to find a career path to call our own.
