I am a student
The Public Service of Canada offers programs for university, college and high school students who want to work for the public service while still in school. Managers know that students who work under these and other programs can become invaluable members of their team.
- The Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP) provides full-time students with work experience and learning opportunities that are related to their field of study.
- Register in a Co-op/Internship program with your academic institution and consult the notice boards at your campus career centre or the co-op/internship placement office for federal public service placement opportunities.
- If you are a post-secondary student interested in obtaining experience in research (design, execution and evaluation), check out the Research Affiliate Program (RAP). Students in this program are normally placed with ongoing research operations in federal public service facilities. The research projects should be structured to assist the student in developing specific knowledge and research skills.
