Alumni Profile | Michelle Vello

Michelle VelloI graduated with my MA (Poli Sci) from UWaterloo in 2017 and recently began working as a Policy Analyst with the Department of Natural Resources (NRCan) in Ottawa. I am a part of their accelerated development program, the Policy Analyst and Recruitment Development Program (PARDP), which recruits new MA and PhD graduates from all over Canada and the world. It's been an amazing opportunity thus far. I learned about this program largely through my own job seeking research, so I wanted to pass this message along to share this potential opportunity with current MA Political Science students. Here is the link to the application page (the new recruiting season should begin in the Fall). I'd be happy to chat with potential applicants to the PARDP program and pass along some advice. I can be contacted by email at

Michelle obtained a Master of Arts Degree in Political Science from the University of Waterloo in 2017.
