How does it work?

  2. Hiring managers request students who match specific criteria for the jobs they want to fill (e.g., education, language, skills, work location).
  3. A random search for students who meet the hiring manager's criteria is conducted.
  4. Students are contacted via e-mail to confirm their interest in the job.
  5. The confirmed list of names is sent to the hiring manager.
  6. The hiring manager reviews the student applications and invites students for tests and interviews, as required.
  7. A job offer is made to the chosen student(s).
  8. The results appear in the students' jobs.gc.ca account.
