Science and Technology are fast developing New Zealand's resources. Equally important for the country's economic growth is the efficient management of these resources, in which the Public Service is playing a large part. The great diversity and specialisation of Government activities call for many graduates, from the specialist research scientist to the liberal arts man who may choose to make a career in administration and partipicate in policy formulation at its various stages.
The Public Service offers graduates the widest variety of careers available in New Zealand, ranging from international trade and diplomacy to wildlife research and ecology; from transportation economics to oceanography. Whatever career he chooses, a graduate will be expected to make full use of those attributes of a disciplined mind, clarity of thought, and a capacity for the logical presentation of facts and ideas which are associated with the possession of any university degree.
