McGill’s Career Planning Service (CaPS) is proud to announce our partnership with InterviewStream. This new platform is a web based interface that allows a student to practice for an interview, rehearse an elevator pitch or improve their public speaking. InterviewStream is available to McGill students and can be accessed anytime anywhere you have an internet connection, web cam and microphone to simulate job/internship interviews by responding to pre-recorded interview questions and practice both verbal and non-verbal communication skills.
Once you have received a call about an interview, you must prepare. Many job applicants spend very little time preparing for an interview and, unsurprisingly, this often leads to poor results. Thorough preparation will increase your confidence and help you improve your performance and job prospects.
McGill employees (faculty, staff and administrators) can now access myFuture, McGill’s online job search and career tools suite for students and alumni.
Not only will you be able to see the jobs, internships, events and workshops available to our undergraduate and graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows, you can create your own employer account to hire a student/graduate.
Steps to take:
CaPS is creating short videos, themed "What I wish I knew about CaPS", for a new course being offered to new students called McGill 101.
We're looking for 2nd , 3rd year, and graduated students who know and have used our services and resources, and are willing to share their stories / tips.
