I think it depends on when you applied to FSWEP and what you checked off in your application. Plenty of students are hired for summer positions, and they may be in the process of contacting candidates right now, although I think most have already been called for interviews by now (or at least contacted to see if candidates are interested in the position).godoggo wrote: ↑Apr 9th, 2016 8:10 pmHow do you get into FSWEP initially? I have filed an application. I am a second year Carleton student in finance and accounting-getting A to A+ in all courses, am a TA for accounting 1st year and involved in student government, on faculty board for business school and do volunteer work and volunteer for university giving tours. What else do I have to do. I have customer service experience, have been a life guard and worked for parks Ontario. Could there be something on my resume that is actually limiting me?
The department I work for tends to hire 3rd or 4th year accounting/finance students as they are looking for students to bridge into its FI development program after graduation. They also tend to hire their coop students through FSWEP after their placements are done (as I've mentioned before). I can't speak of any other departments though. Good luck with the hunt for work!
