Ask Me About FSWEP and the Federal Government
A bit of background:
I've worked with the federal government on a casual basis, through an agency, as FSWEP, and finally, as an indeterminate employee. I've experienced how employment through each of these methods has been beneficial as well as the drawbacks that come with them.
I've been with the federal government for nearly three years and I think I can say I know the hiring process better than most other individuals who have gone through it.
EDIT: Some people have requested contact information for those people who look after and manage the FSWEP program (i.e., confirming that their name is in the system, etc.). Sp0r3 has found some info, which I've included below:
UPDATE 07/10/2016: I've been out of the FSWEP loop for quite a few years now. As such, I am bowing out from replying to posts on this thread as my knowledge may no longer be accurate/up to date (I actually did this unofficially a few years ago, but am making it official now). Hopefully the kind posters of RFD who has current/up to date knowledge of the program will continue to contribute to this thread and help out those with questions.Sp0r3 wrote: ↑Jan 12th, 2010 12:46 amFound the website... http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/goc/fswep.shtml
