Tara Linseman Headshot

The Science Internship at Western was a crucial part of my undergrad experience. It provided me with the life skills you just can't learn in a classroom - how to perform in an interview, how to write a cover letter and resume, networking, time management, accountability, and critical thinking.

These skills have translated into almost every aspect of my professional like - from completing my Master's degree to working in a small start-up company, to working for one of Canada's most prominent genetic-based Biotech companies. I am confident in saying that the career I have today would not have been a possibility without my Western Science internship experience.
