Are you a recent trade graduate? Are you looking for employment in Nova Scotia? The Export Internship for Trade Graduates program provides a concrete link between recent graduates and Nova Scotian employers. The program will assist 20 graduates who have studied in disciplines related to international trade to secure their first job in their field of study and will afford these graduates the hands-on work experience necessary to launch a career in Nova Scotia. Simultaneously, embedding these graduates in Nova Scotian companies will increase the companies’ export success. This project aligns with the Atlantic Growth Strategy goals of retaining more skilled talent in our region, connecting this talent to local businesses and increasing our region’s global competitiveness. The first cohort of 10 graduates is expected to begin employment under the program before November 2017, with the second cohort of 10 graduates beginning work placements between May and September 2018.
