The Recruitment Process
We’re excited that you’re considering Farm Credit Canada as your employer. Below are some tips to let you know what we’ll be looking for and what you can expect during the recruitment process.
Once you’re ready, you can apply for one of our current opportunities.
Your cover letter tells us why you want to work at FCC and what you’re looking for in terms of a career.
Your cover letter should:
- indicate the position you’re applying for and quote the competition number
- summarize how your education, experience and skills will contribute to the job you’re applying for
Your resumé is a reflection of you and is your first opportunity to make an impression.
When writing your resumé:
- ensure that your daytime contact information is current
- list your education, employment experience and volunteer work
- choose references who can comment on your skills and abilities, and are available in the coming weeks
We use a variety of tools at FCC to determine who will be most suited to the role. The type of screening and testing used depends on the type and level of the position.
Language evaluations will be necessary in some cases. If you’ve recently completed one from the Public Service Commission of Canada, you’ll be asked to provide a copy of your results.
Our competency-based behavioural interviews focus on what you’ve done in past situations. There will usually be a selection committee made up of two or three people for your interview.
For the interview, be sure to:
- bring a copy of your resumé
- research FCC to find out more about the organization and what is important to us
- have copies of your professional credentials (education certificates, professional associations, etc.)
- think of questions about FCC and the role you’ve applied for
