Tips and tricks

Preparing your resume

What to include

Include all relevant information in your resume and be sure to put this information in chronological order, including:

  • education (include your expected graduation date)
  • work experience
  • volunteer roles
  • extracurricular activities

Add any other information you think would be important for us to know. Don't include any false information on your resume.

Length

Keep your resume to one or two pages. Your resume should be concise and on point, but make sure to include all relevant and important information.

Cover letters

Not all resumes need a cover letter but if you choose to add one, please keep it to a reasonable length. Make sure to change your cover letter for each position you apply for.

Edit, edit, edit

Read over your resume to find any errors or spelling mistakes. We advise proofreading your resume (or have a friend review) up to three times. Even one small typo can affect your entire resume. (Hint: We no longer spell Encana with a capital "C")

Preparing for your interview

Be Informed

Be prepared for your interview. Spend time researching and getting to know our company. Come prepared with your resume and a copy of your unofficial transcripts.

Be on time

Leave yourself extra time to get to the interview as first impressions are important and it's better to be early than late.

Dress to impress

Make sure you look presentable. Our dress code is business casual, use that as a guideline.

How long will the interview take?

We typically try to keep interviews to within 45 minutes.

Who will be conducting interviews?

You will be interviewed by members of the campus technical team or group to which the position reports. A member of the Campus Recruitment team may also sit in on your interview.

Types of questions to expect

You will be asked behavioral based questions such as: 'give us an example of a time when you set a goal and were able to meet or achieve it'.

Remember...

Be yourself! Achieving academic excellence is important, however we are recruiting for well rounded students to join our team.
