Alberta program to match graduates with overseas employment

June 14, 2012

The Alberta government intends to establish this fall the Alberta Externship Program, a new initiative matching recent PSE graduates with work in partnering nations. Albertans ages 19 to 30 who have completed an approved degree, diploma, or certificate in the last 2 years will be eligible for "externships" of between 6 months and a year. The program is designed to give young people an opportunity to obtain international experience while improving Alberta's relations with regions such as Asia, Europe or Central and South America.
