The Interview
• The selection committee gets an opportunity to
gather information about your knowledge, skills and
abilities as they relate to the job and your ability to
do the job.
• You get an opportunity to ask questions about the
job and to “sell” yourself to the selection
committee.

behavioral based questions.

as they relate to
the position being sought.
It can include information on paid, unpaid and/or volunteer
experiences that provided you with the experience and/or the
opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills and abilities needed for

criteria.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

eligibility in the designated groups at the time of application in order to
receive priority consideration under the Affirmative Action Policy.
You should include a statement on the cover letter or resume identifying
which Category applies to you:
For example, on the cover letter:

consideration under the Affirmative Action Policy.
Or on the resume:
• Affirmative Action Candidate - Indigenous Non-Aboriginal.

Leadership | Innovation | Quality

26
Accommodation
If you have indicated on your resume or your
application that you have a disability, your Human
Resource Officer will ask you if you require any
accommodation during the staffing process. This
may, for example, mean doing the assignment in a
different way.
If you do not indicate that you have a
disability, Human Resources will not know to ask you
for an accommodation.

Leadership | Innovation | Quality

27
Verification
Applicants are being asked to provide verification of
their:
• Affirmative Action Status;
• Education; or
• Certificates.
Be prepared to provide these.
If you are unsure what would be considered as
verification (proof), speak to a Human Resource
representative.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

28
Assessment Phase
After you apply on the job opening, your cover letter
and resume will be reviewed to determine if and have
been screened in. This means that you are seen to be
qualified for the position.

After screening is complete, the Assessment Phase
begins. The assessment phase is meant to assess your
suitability for the job through an interview and possibly
an assignment.
How are you going to prepare for the testing and
interviews?
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

29
Assignments
If you are asked to participate in an assignment, prepare…
Review the Job Description. Look for the technical skills that you
should know that would be difficult to demonstrate during an
interview. These vary depending on the type of position you
have applied for.

These should give you an idea of what will be “tested.”
Assignments may include things like:
•
•
•
•
•

Proof reading;
Typing tests;
Drafting a letter;
Presentation; or
Drafting a briefing note.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

30
Interview Preparation

When preparing for the interview you should review:
• the job description; and
• the hiring department’s website.
Be certain you:
• understand the department’s business; and
• understand the program and the area the position
works in.

Leadership | Innovation | Quality

31
During the Interview
• Listen carefully to the question and be sure that you
understand what is being asked. Ask to have the question
repeated if necessary.
• Write down questions that have multiple parts to them so that
you don’t inadvertently not answer a question.
• Watch your time.
• Make a note of questions you may wish to add to or return to if
you have additional time at the end.

• Focus on your strengths and how they relate to the position.
• Demonstrate how your past experiences relate to this position.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

32
Interview Scoring
Even though the selection committee is now familiar
with your education and your work experiences from
having reviewed your resume or from knowing you
outside of the process…
Answer ALL Questions Fully!
Points are awarded for each question and are based
only on your responses for that question. If you do NOT
say it, it will not be considered towards your interview
score.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

33
References
At the end of your interview, the Human Resource Officer will ask
you for 3 references, if you have not already provided them. One of
these references should be your current or most recent direct
supervisor.
**If your references are not positive, you may not be considered for
the position.**
Reminder…..
• ask your references before you list them on your resume if they
are willing to provide you with a positive reference;
• make sure your references are available and that the contact
information you have for them is accurate; and
• make sure you let them know what the position is you are
applying on.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

34
Debrief Opportunity
It is always disappointing to hear you didn’t get the job offer.
We encourage you to take the time to speak / meet with the
Human Resource Officer who ran the competition or for technical
questions, the hiring manager.

They can provide you with:
• feedback about how far you got in the process;
• suggestions to improve your resume;
• suggestions to improve when doing the assignment or interview;
or
• even a mock interview.
The goal of those conversations is to help you do better next time.
Leadership | Innovation | Quality

35
Eligibility Lists

Keep in mind that the GNWT may make use of
eligibility lists.

If you did screen in / pass, but were just not the top
candidate, you may receive a call about your interest
if another, similar vacancy comes up within 6 months.

Or on the resume: • Affirmative Action Candidate - Indigenous Non-Aboriginal. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 26
  • 27. Accommodation If you have indicated on your resume or your application that you have a disability, your Human Resource Officer will ask you if you require any accommodation during the staffing process. This may, for example, mean doing the assignment in a different way. If you do not indicate that you have a disability, Human Resources will not know to ask you for an accommodation. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 27
  • 28. Verification Applicants are being asked to provide verification of their: • Affirmative Action Status; • Education; or • Certificates. Be prepared to provide these. If you are unsure what would be considered as verification (proof), speak to a Human Resource representative. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 28
  • 29. Assessment Phase After you apply on the job opening, your cover letter and resume will be reviewed to determine if and have been screened in. This means that you are seen to be qualified for the position. After screening is complete, the Assessment Phase begins. The assessment phase is meant to assess your suitability for the job through an interview and possibly an assignment. How are you going to prepare for the testing and interviews? Leadership | Innovation | Quality 29
  • 30. Assignments If you are asked to participate in an assignment, prepare… Review the Job Description. Look for the technical skills that you should know that would be difficult to demonstrate during an interview. These vary depending on the type of position you have applied for. These should give you an idea of what will be “tested.” Assignments may include things like: • • • • • Proof reading; Typing tests; Drafting a letter; Presentation; or Drafting a briefing note. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 30
  • 31. Interview Preparation When preparing for the interview you should review: • the job description; and • the hiring department’s website. Be certain you: • understand the department’s business; and • understand the program and the area the position works in. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 31
  • 32. During the Interview • Listen carefully to the question and be sure that you understand what is being asked. Ask to have the question repeated if necessary. • Write down questions that have multiple parts to them so that you don’t inadvertently not answer a question. • Watch your time. • Make a note of questions you may wish to add to or return to if you have additional time at the end. • Focus on your strengths and how they relate to the position. • Demonstrate how your past experiences relate to this position. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 32
  • 33. Interview Scoring Even though the selection committee is now familiar with your education and your work experiences from having reviewed your resume or from knowing you outside of the process… Answer ALL Questions Fully! Points are awarded for each question and are based only on your responses for that question. If you do NOT say it, it will not be considered towards your interview score. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 33
  • 34. References At the end of your interview, the Human Resource Officer will ask you for 3 references, if you have not already provided them. One of these references should be your current or most recent direct supervisor. **If your references are not positive, you may not be considered for the position.** Reminder….. • ask your references before you list them on your resume if they are willing to provide you with a positive reference; • make sure your references are available and that the contact information you have for them is accurate; and • make sure you let them know what the position is you are applying on. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 34
  • 35. Debrief Opportunity It is always disappointing to hear you didn’t get the job offer. We encourage you to take the time to speak / meet with the Human Resource Officer who ran the competition or for technical questions, the hiring manager. They can provide you with: • feedback about how far you got in the process; • suggestions to improve your resume; • suggestions to improve when doing the assignment or interview; or • even a mock interview. The goal of those conversations is to help you do better next time. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 35
  • 36. Eligibility Lists Keep in mind that the GNWT may make use of eligibility lists. If you did screen in / pass, but were just not the top candidate, you may receive a call about your interest if another, similar vacancy comes up within 6 months. Leadership | Innovation | Quality 36
