IPAC Edmonton is a proud pioneer of the Public Sector Graduate Internship (PSGI) Program!
The PSGI places full-time, graduate students in paid, part-time work experiences across all levels of government. Students gain rare and valuable work experience in the public sector, while pursuing their studies. Employers gain access to top talent and salary matching to help build the future of their workforce.
The Program consists of a 42-week term over the calendar year. Interns complete two 21week placements – one within one level of government, and a second with another level. As a cohort, interns are offered professional development opportunities throughout their placements, developing both their skills and their professional networks.
PSGI partners include:
IPAC Edmonton, as the lead PSGI partner, connects the University of Alberta (U of A) and public sector organizations, ensuring that students’ placements build upon their scholarly knowledge and provide them with the work experience they require to become leaders in the public service.
The U of A Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research gains the capacity to place students in a wide range of rewarding professional development and career advancement opportunities.
Federal, provincial, and municipal public sector organizations gain access to top talent and benefit from the cross-pollination of ideas across governments.
Funding by the Government of Alberta has been a cornerstone to developing the U of A’s Graduate Student Internship Program, which supports the PSGI.
