Excerpted from the Canada Career Guide

Pre-Interview Preparation

Many settlement services, government employment offices and even libraries across Canada offer programs and workshops to help jobseekers improve their interview skills; many of these are free. University alumni should check with their alma maters’ career services offices for workshops and mock interview opportunities.

Interview Conduct

Punctuality is the norm in Canada; arriving late for a job interview is viewed as extremely unprofessional. You should arrive at the interviewer’s office at least 10 minutes early.

The Interview

A single interview typically will be an hour long and will focus on learning more about your past experiences and work habits, and how they fit with the needs of the company. It is possible you will have a series of interviews during which you will meet with a number of people.


It is customary to send a thank you note to the contact and/or interviewer(s) within one or two days after each interview. The card or email should address each person by name.

This is just a short sample of what you’ll find in over 100 pages of information in the complete Canada Guide.
