Campus Recruiting Process

The campus recruiting process in Canadian university usually starts in September. The basic steps are as follows:

  1. Company sends job posting to university, which includes the following information
    • company introduction
    • job description
    • number of opening
    • qualification
    • requirement
    • application deadline
  2. At the same time, company holds Info Session on campus. The purpose is to introduce the company and the job position to students and provide a chance for students to interact with the representatives from the company. Students can also take this opportunity to promote themselves to the company and communicate with their potential employers. Many students bring their Resume in case there is opportunity to hand in their resume to employer in person.
  3. Students submit resume, cover letter, transcript (as requested in the posting) before application deadline. Then, wait for news... for first round interview.
  4. First round interview, usually on campus. There are one, two or three interviewers and the interview usually lasts for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Then, wait for news for second interview, if short listed.
  5. Second round interview, usually at the office. There are more interviewers than the first round. In my case, I was interviewed by seven interviewers in seven different rooms in my second round interview and each of them last for 45 minutes.
  6. Last step is to wait for the result. Good luck!

So, please pay more attention to the university career centre or actuarial student club for all the information sections!
