I’ve applied for an internship before. Is the application process any different for me?
The process for all applicants is the same, regardless of how far you previously progressed in the interview process.
What does a complete application look like?
Each job description outlines what’s necessary. Generally, a complete application includes:
A resume with a visible graduation date (month and year)

I don’t have a transcript. What should I include instead?
Please send us a tentative course list and full course title/s.
I’ve gained new skills since I applied. Can I update my resume?
If you’ve already been contacted by a member of the hiring team, you can simply send them your updated resume. If you haven’t been contacted, please reapply with your updated resume. Please make sure you list all courses, skills, projects, experiences, and internships/opportunities that you want to highlight.
What’s the overall interview process?
The process begins with an initial resume screen as roles become available. If roles align with your specialised skills, the recruiting team will reach out to you directly to schedule interviews.
How long after I apply will I hear back from the recruiting team?
There’s no single process or experience; timing can vary and is based on role availability. The general process begins with an initial resume screen as roles become available. If roles or a particular role align with your specialised skills, the recruiting team will reach out to you directly. This can take upwards of 60+ days.
I’ve applied for multiple roles. Can I be considered for all of them?
Yes, all applications are assessed for all open internship opportunities. If we feel your skills align with a role other than the one to which you applied, we’ll reach out to you.

You can include your offer deadline in your cover letter or resume. However, we screen applications based on the roles we have available and the skill sets needed.
How long does the hiring process take?
Process time varies across all our roles and is contingent on role availability. Process times can take 3-4 weeks from initial resume screen review.
