From the beginning of First-year, we advise that you start looking beyond your undergraduate degree and plan the professional path you hope to follow after graduation. Western Science Career Services points you to the resources and opportunities that you need to succeed, from online workshops, to develop core corporate competencies, to finding an internship opportunity in order to 'try on' a career.
Four out of the five job-related factors that recruiters initially look for in a resume involve work experience and consider many consider graduates to be ill-prepared to manage successfully in the corporate landscape. The Science Internship Program, offered by Western Science Career Services provides senior undergraduate students support to develop the skills and tools you need to secure an 8-16-month placement in industry, government or the not-for-profit sector. The internship experience demands the application of your science background while providing ample opportunity to develop the professional competencies and networks you require to work effectively individually or as a member of a team in the public or private sector or even in an academia.
