For Graduating Students

Meet with a CaPS Advisor

The McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS) assists students in their career development and search for permanent, part-time, and summer jobs, as well as internships, by providing workshops, individual advising, a comprehensive job posting service, and an extensive Career Resource Centre. Make sure you take advantage of CaPS' resources and MyFuture, the McGill University's portal for promoting job opportunities and career education.

Find Your Own Internships

This can be done through directly contacting organizations where you are interested in pursuing and internship and attempting to get the contact information for someone responsible for hiring interns. Should you choose to go this route, persistence and patience are key. Previous McGill interns have had considerable luck approaching target organizations. Nonetheless, it is important to begin your search with realistic goals.

The OECD Young Associates Program

The YAP is an exciting opportunity that offers professional experience at the cutting edge of public policy development and analysis. The YAP is a 24-month programme designed to expose recent undergraduates to a variety of research and analytical work on major policy areas. The purpose of the Programme is to prepare outstanding undergraduates for their future postgraduate studies. As such, successful candidates must clearly articulate how they are motivated to use their experience at the OECD to pursue a Master’s degree or PhD following completion of the Programme.

A key component of the Programme is mentorship. During their two-year work at the OECD, the Young Associates will be closely mentored by their managers. Managers are therefore selected on the basis of their professional experience, policy expertise, and ability to work with, challenge, and develop young talented individuals.

December 2020: YA positions are posted and applications (CVs and cover letters) are accepted through the OECD career website. Candidates may apply to more than one relevant YA position.
