These candidates will then participate in interviews hosted via WebEx, and, if successful, will be placed on a shortlist for the city for which they’ve been selected. Candidates selected for an interview must provide a transcript and copies of documents indicating that they meet the eligibility criteria to qualify for the program, namely that they are: (a) 24 years old or younger as of December 31, 2013; and (b) a university or college graduate (copy of degree/diploma).
Candidates who have successfully completed the interview stage will be required to attend an in-person panel session in the city for which they’ve been selected. The local panel will make the final selection.
If selected for the position, candidates will be required to travel to Toronto for a two-day orientation at the beginning of the contract start date (January 27-28, 2014) as well as for a two-day closing event upon completion of the program (January 2015). All expenses will be covered by RBC.
