There is an important gap in connecting skilled prospective public servants to opportunities within government institutions. Most students across various fields of studies have questions or uncertainties about their future careers. Even those studying public administration may still be on the fence about choosing the public service amidst all the criticism surrounding it. IPAC, for example, aims to fill this gap with the organisation of yearly events, such as speed mentoring events or workshops for students and new public servants. These events connect students with public servants to answer burning questions, such as: What should I know about the human resource processes? What kinds of skills should I develop to be a good public servant? What kind of job opportunities exist in the public service? What different departments exist, what are their differences and which one should I choose?
