I worked at Canadian Cancer Society full-time
Loved my job. Wonderful, hardworking, caring staff and volunteers dedicated to the mission. I had a lot of opportunities to grow professionally during my time there.
Period of transition was tough, seeing colleagues' positions eliminated.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Canadian Cancer Society (Montreal, QC) in October-2009.
consist of 2 interviews, one month passed by the time I sent my resume and the time I got hired. Started to work one month after being hired.
Your personal values and lifestyle should fit the organisation's.
- manager was 45 minutes late...
- we had a great talk about the job, the person leaving was present, that helped
- HR and director were present
- classic HR interview (just reassure them that you are the person they are looking for)
HR told me on the Thursday of the interview they would give me news about the job before the end of the next week; at 3 o'clock the Friday after I still hadn't had a call from them and decided to communicate with them... They announced me I was the chosen one!
They are open to negotiation, take advantage of that at hiring b/c promotion is difficult.
