    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Government of Canada (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Two employees of the embassy interviewed me. They were looking for specific skills for a specific project so they have asked me a very specific question like where I have proven that I have those skills they are looking for. They also wanted to know whether I have the industry knowledge based on in which industry I will be active the most.
