Location:Online via Zoom
Audience:Alumni, Current Students

Are you currently a student in one of our Sociology or Anthropology graduate or undergraduate programs and are interested in learning potential pathways for a job with the federal government?

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology is pleased to invite you to a discussion with three alumni from our graduate programs to share their experience and knowledge about transitioning from a degree in Sociology or Anthropology to a government job.

Mandy McCarthy completed her MA in Anthropology in 2002 and began her doctorate in Canadian Studies. She was a successful candidate in the Recruitment of Policy Leaders program and began working for the federal government in 2006. Mandy is currently the A/Director General of Settlement Agreements and Childhood Claims and is responsible for the Missing Children and Burial Information work currently underway.

Andrew MacKenzie completed his BA (1999) and MA (2001) in Sociology at Carleton and started at Statistics Canada the day after defending his thesis. After a few years he decided to do a PhD in Sociology part-time from 2005-2013 while also working full-time at Statistics Canada because it opened doors to where he wanted to take his career. Andrew is now a Director at the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Christine Pich graduated from Carleton University with a PhD in Sociology in 2018, and is currently an Analyst for the Digital Design Branch at Innovation, Science, and Economic Development (ISED) Canada.
