Job Dating by jobimmersion.ca: a great success!

A total of 36 candidates were able to complete pre-interviews with 10 participating school boards for a total of 100 interviews conducted from west to east on the Great Tour 2021 Teacher 5 étoiles Caravan.

Our team of recruiters successfully completed the 2021 season of Job Dating, a series of job interviews that matched school boards that are members of jobimmersion.ca with students graduating from a French Immersion Teaching Qualification Program. A total of 36 candidates were interviewed by 10 participating school boards for a total of 100 interviews.

Job Dating events were held at five university campuses: Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia – Kelowna Campus, University of Calgary, University of Alberta – Saint John Campus and University of Saint Boniface. The tour was part of ACPI’s Great Teacher 5 étoiles Tour 2021. The tour covered 12,000 km from British Columbia to Alberta to Saskatchewan to Manitoba in as little as 6 weeks, using a camper van decorated in the campaign colors as an interview lounge.

The next jobimmersion.ca Job Dating Tour will take place in September 2022 and will reach out to candidates in Eastern Canada (Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ottawa).
