Given the positive feedback from students and members alike, we will continue to recommend the voluntary 2-step interview notification and booking system this coming year, as well as the regionalization of interview scheduling.
Universal Interview Notification and Response Dates
Friday, December 3, 2021 - Universal NOTIFICATION Date
That is, all applicants applying at Canadian Internship Sites will be informed of their interview status on this day but no interviews will be booked until the following Monday.
Monday, December 6, 2021 - Universal RESPONSE/BOOKING date
This is the date applicants can begin contacting sites who have offered them interviews. Specifically, that means student can start booking their interviews with their internship sites at 11:00 am EST on Monday, December 6, 2021.
Regional Interview Dates
Following past precedent, sites are invited to book their interview dates according to geographic location as follows:
West (Thunder Bay and Western Provinces) January 3-17
Central (Ontario, except Thunder Bay) January 10-24
East/Atlantic January 17-31
Note that this regionalization schedule was originally intended to simplify travel for applicants. Given that travel is not our most pressing issue as a community, there is opportunity to reconsider this model. Specifically, our Central group is large, and our East/Atlantic group is small. Central members are invited to consider joining the East/Atlantic group this year. We invite discussion of this issue on our member forums.
