How to apply

    Prepare

    Have a good idea of what type of role would be a good fit for you and your experience. If you’re looking for a role in engineering or technology, make sure to test your skills by practicing online, in class, or with side projects. (Pro tip: check out our Tech Dev Guide). For business roles, make sure you understand what types of roles fit your skills, and expand your knowledge by working on projects or courses that match your desires.
