    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Export Development Canada in November 2018.

    Interview

    A bit slow to get everything set up. However, the interview was very friendly and the interviewers are genuinely interested in you, and the skills you bring. Knowledgeable people that answered questions at the end with great detail and passion. The business that EDC does is one of the most interesting if you have a passion for Global Markets.
