Some handy tips

Take the time to get to know as much as possible about us. Read our Annual Reports and our mission statements. Research the program stream you’re applying for too – you’ll be asked about it.

Draft it, craft it and review it thoroughly. Small mistakes can easily detract from an otherwise great application.

Working in a corporate environment, it’s important to have a strong professional skillset. But the application process is as much about your personality too. We want to get to know you! Answer all questions clearly and articulately, but don’t be afraid to show us what makes you unique too.
