Veterans Affairs Canada
“I came through the federal student hiring process 35 years ago,” says Katherine Morrow.
“I started as a Case Manager, and was rehired for the following two summers. When I graduated university in 1985, I was hired full-time. Since then, I have worked in many interesting roles.
“I encourage young people to consider the federal government as an employer of choice. There are opportunities on PEI with Veterans Affairs, which is the only federal government department that has its head office outside Ottawa. We have careers in a wide variety of roles, including journalism, communications, business, mathematics, accounting, program development, cabinet and parliamentary affairs, operations, and nursing.
“We are in a period of growth, and we are in hiring mode. I encourage students to sign up through the Federal Student Work Experience program.
Non-students can start the application process at www.jobs.gc.ca.
