    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McMaster University.

    Interview

    It is done through a multiple-mini-interview style. It is pretty relaxed but also professional. Applicants are put into groups and expected to demonstrate teamwork but also individuality. There is no 'perfect candidate'. The management recognizes that every person has their strength and weaknesses and can all be invaluable to the community they are put in charge of the following year. So basically, the most important thing, is to be a professional version of yourself.
