What happens after you submit your application?

➢ Your application is placed in our student inventory.
➢ When there are job openings, a search will be conducted in the student inventory. If your application matches the manager’s search criteria, you may be contacted* for a test and/or interview.
➢ Security clearance will be conducted and student status verified prior to the job offer.

*Due to high volumes of applications and to ensure a fair selection process, a random selection of applicants meeting all criteria for a job may be used, therefore not all students who submit an application will be contacted.

A diverse and inclusive workplace

Our selection processes and work environments are inclusive and barrier-free. If you are contacted in relation to a job opportunity, you should identify any accommodations you may require using the contact information on this advertisement or in communication you receive. Information received about accommodation measures will be managed confidentially.

The Public Service of Canada is committed to building a skilled, diverse workforce that reflects Canadian society. We promote employment equity and, while voluntary, we encourage you to indicate on your application if you are a woman, an Aboriginal person, a person with a disability or a member of a visible minority group.
