Have they started interviewing?

They asked for my resume and transcript and I never heard back from them. It's been over a month.

Benchmark: Likely B average.

Marks may matter more when choosing between qualified candidates from the pool...Work experience per say is not relevant as much as specific experiences; i.e. leadership roles.

I am currently 1 and a bit years into my FORD program and have rapidly progressed from an FI-01 to an FI-02 already, so it really is a great program :)

I heard back from the program today saying I got accepted into the Inventory/pool! :) I’m super excited!

Did anyone else hear back?
Does anyone know how long it will be until an employment office contacts you? :)

@sanhasazu Sure! So my interview was December 6th, 2018, and I heard back from them this past Thursday (January 10th)...so just over a month. I applied from a region within the GTA, east of Toronto to be more specific. :)

Sorry for the delay Sand.

I think in some regards I've gotten lucky in my specific situation with the group I started with. I'm on my second rotation and becoming a bit more specialized. The work is highly classified so I'll leave it out, but it's what you would expect from an FI in the FORD program.

The program lasts 30-months if I recall correctly, I'll soon be applying to upgrade my Acting FI-02 to an Indeterminate, so after that it's a bit less relevant.

a BIG THING I have noticed through my work is Managers, Directors etc. in the FI roles at my work are largely FORD graduates, seems like a good sign if anyone wants to push up!
