Hire Me Interview Competition


"Hire Me Interview Competition (International Version)" is a great opportunity for international students and immigrants in Nova Scotia to evaluate your communication, language and interview skills, and get potential opportunities to be hired. 


Candidates compete in a Resume & Cover Letter Round, followed by a Final Interview Round with real Human Resources Managers and Employers from the local businesses in front of the public audience. The finale of the competition will be live streamed.


Final judges are willing to give out job offers if there are qualified candidates in the Top 3. 


The committee will select a job description which does not contain a lot of limitations such as major, background etc. Therefore, any major student and any background immigrant can apply. The selection committee and final judge panel will make the decision based on the quality of the resume and cover letter and interview skills, not by professional knowledge within the industry. For example, the job description was given by Easypass Immigration and the position was Executive Assistant, the final winner is from Truro campus and major in agriculture.


Final Competition: March 30th (Time and Location TBA)
