Can I submit my resume/application without applying to a specific job advertisement?

Yes. You can submit your resume/application for general consideration for employment with the PEILCC. However, these will only be evaluated for jobs if the corresponding job-specific advertisements are not filled with applications/resumes that are submitted for them specifically.

Is a cover letter required with resumes/applications?

A cover letter is not required with resumes/applications for employment with the PEILCC, but it certainly helps us to get to know you better. We recommend including a cover letter with your resume/application.

Do you have jobs available that are not posted on your career page?

Our practice is to post available jobs on the Career Opportunities section of our website; however, as new positions arise, existing employees with the PEILCC may be considered prior to posting the position advertisement online.

If I apply for one position, will I be considered for other positions or do I need to apply to each job separately?

We encourage you to apply separately to all of the position advertisements that interest you. This is the best way to ensure you are considered for a particular job.

How will I know you received my resume/application?

All resumes/applications that are submitted are reviewed by the PEILCC’s HR Department. However, while we appreciate the interest of all candidates, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.

How long will my resume/application be kept in active records?

Your application will be kept for one year from the date it is submitted.

What information should I include on my resume/application?

Include all information requested (e.g. education, training, experience, competencies – skills and abilities) that is directly relevant to the job advertisement you are applying for. The information you provide is used to assess you during the recruitment and selection process.

Will my privacy be protected when I submit my application?

The PEILCC is committed to protecting personal information that is provided to us. When you submit your application/resume, your personal information will be used for the specific purpose of recruitment and selection.

I missed the deadline to apply but would still like to have my application included. Can I still apply?

Applications and/or resumes must be received on or before the application deadline as indicated on the job respective advertisement. Any resumes/applications received after this prescribed deadline will not be given initial consideration.

Should I tailor my resume/application to the particular job I’m interested in?

Yes, your application will be assessed based on how strongly your qualifications meet the minimum qualifications as outlined in the job advertisement.

I have a disability and require special assistance. Do I have to indicate this on my application?

Your response to this question on the application is voluntary. If you are invited for an interview, however, please notify the person booking the interview what type of special assistance you may require.

Do any positions require the use of French language?

Yes, some PEILCC positions require fluency in both English and French. The requirement for proficiency in English and French, or a bilingual position, will be stated in the job advertisement. You must have this skill to be selected to participate in the interview process, and your level of proficiency will be assessed by the PEILCC in collaboration with the PEI PSC’s French Language Services.
