Nicole Halseth – Natural Resources Canada Summer 2016

My name is Nicole Halseth, and I am beginning my second year in the Conflict Analysis and Resolution stream at NPSIA. I am currently completing a co-op work term at the International Affairs division of Natural Resources Canada. The position involves research, brief and memo writing, and coordinating NRCans international activities. Through this work, I’ve been able to broaden my subject-area expertise in several interesting topics (including bird deaths by human infrastructure-big problem, that). I’ve also been able to network, and engage with the thriving academic and professional community. Working with NRCan has been an eye-opening experience, especially regarding the subtleties of working for the government. I would absolutely recommend doing a work term with the program!
