CPABC CareerConnect Speed Interview Night

CPABC's CareerConnect Employer Program is hosting this opportunity for you to explore career opportunities in accounting with local organizations. Speed Interview Nights are a quick and effective way to pre-interview with multiple employers in one night. We invite you to participate to meet with local employers for current and future career opportunities. 

The Speed Interview Process:

  • Employer interview tables will be set up around the perimeter of the room. Table signage will be provided to identify each employer.
  • When you arrive, please line up in front of the employers of your choice for a chance to interview. 
  • Interviews should be kept short, we suggest 5-7 minutes.
  • Please bring your resumes and prepare questions for each employer you hope to meet with. A list of confirmed employers will be sent out to registrants prior to the event.
  • The essence of the speed interview event is for employers to identify candidates to consider for a full follow-up interview at a later date.

Sorry, registration for the CPABC CareerConnect Vancouver Speed Interview Night is now closed. Please contact Angela Fong at 604-629-8362 or [email protected] for more information.

Financial Management Board | www.fnfmb.com/en

First Nations have always planned beyond the 7th generation. The First Nations Fiscal Management Act (FMA), a First Nation's led initiative, supports the ability of First Nations to develop the capacity and secure the money to plan and bring to life a 7th generation strategy. The FMA puts First Nations governments on the same playing field as other governments and public institutions. It allows First Nations to be eligible to borrow at similar rates and terms other governments in Canada enjoy. It also allows Nations to use different revenue streams like taxation, government transfers and economic development as security for borrowing under the FMA. The FMB is one of three First Nations institutions created under the FMA. We're here to support First Nations to put in place good governance and finance practices to achieve their goals.
