Testimonials from ISEO participants

“Applying to the Federal Student Work Experience Program’s Indigenous Student Employment Opportunity provided me with an advantage. It gave me more career opportunities; I gained leadership skills and I had my managers’ support to achieve my educational goals. Living on Canada’s west coast, I never expected to have an opportunity to work in the federal public service. Because I applied to the Indigenous Student Employment Opportunity, I was able to explore and have adventures in the Government of Canada.’’

- Natallia Gagné, Métis

“ISEO recruitment enabled a truly meaningful work-term in my desired field. Among many unanticipated experiences, I was privileged to meet Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau!”

- Angela Preissl, Leq'á:mel First Nation
