International Careers Workshop:
This information links to a past workshop led by Professor Milner.
This workshop was run by James Milner, Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science. James has more than 10 years of experience working in Africa and Asia with a range of NGOs and UN agencies, including a number of years with the UN’s refugee agency – UNHCR – in India, Cameroon, Guinea and its Geneva Headquarters.
Designed for second year Political Science and Arthur Kroeger College students, but open to everyone, this workshop will introduce you to the kinds of international careers available, what it’s like to work in the field and how to start building your ‘international tool-kit’ during your studies at Carleton.
