In my policy career, a particular highlight
has been representing New Zealand overseas. I represented New Zealand at
the United Nations at APEC, and I will be representing New Zealand at the OECD in
Paris as well. Well if you’re applying for the policy grad program at MBIE,
we are looking for people from all sorts of educational disciplines. I myself
studied religious history in my undergrad. In my policy team, we have
people from law, from economics, from science, from English literature.
No matter what you’ve studied, we’re interested in you and I think it makes
for a very well-rounded policy team.
