CGI is the fifth-largest IT company in the world. They deliver end-to-end IT outsourcing services that allow clients to achieve both quick wins and long-term results.
Over 700 people work in CGI’s four Maritime offices. “We look for all kinds of roles and skills,” says Mike Rogers. “When you apply to CGI, you start by creating an online profile and uploading your CV.
“Applicant should take the time to read the job advertisement that we have posted and highlight how their skills match the skill requirements in the job advertisement. It is a good idea to say when you worked with a certain technology last, so that we know how current your skills are.
“After you submit your resumé in person, it is ok to ask who it will go to, and when you can expect a reply. Then do a follow-up call in a few days with that person and try to gain some insight or feedback on your potential candidacy for the role.
“I am more interested in your experience and the value you will bring to our company than your education. Education is important, but this levels the playing field for all candidates.
“I also like to see the candidate demonstrate they are thinking about where the future technology is going and how it will impact the industry down the road.”
