    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Very simple; interviewer talked about GAC a bit. No knowledge questions, no tests. Moreso trying to sell the company than see if they like me. Felt backwards; it felt as though instead of really testing candidates to find the ones they liked the best, they we're desperately trying to sell the job, talking about the location, the lighting, etc.
