Not everyone is passionate about social policy; not everyone thinks public policy is a calling, perhaps even an addiction. But those who do are an interesting lot, and their work is worth sharing. Which is what this blog will do.

    I happened upon your blog just now and have a question for you. I am really interested in social policy and want to be a Social Policy Analyst, but I don’t have any experience. You work in the Library of Parliment and I’m wondering if you could perhaps give me some ideas on how I could break into the field. I have a Bachelor of Social Sciences degree, but only wish to work part time. Can you offer me any suggestions?

    Thanks so much.

      Hi, Judy.

      I can tell you that the Library of Parliament requires both a master’s degree and high levels of bilingualism. However, if you want to try to work part-time in the field with your Bachelor of Social Sciences degree, I’d suggest you contact your local social planning council, and see if there is any work you can do with and for them, maybe even as a volunteer, to get some experience under your belt. Good luck!
