Who we look for

  • A curious mind—someone who always asks why and is able to balance that with strong execution
  • The ability to stand up, speak out, and identify opportunities for change
  • An innovative, digital, entrepreneurial and growth-focused mindset
  • A zest for collaboration and a knack for connecting with diverse groups and personalities
  • The ability to be client obsessed and know how to deliver WOW to clients and fellow team members
  • We welcome students who are currently enrolled and/or returning to a post secondary institution, or recent graduates.

The recruitment journey

  1. Apply to a posting. You can apply for more than one job, however we suggest picking no more than two of the jobs that most excite you! Have your resume handy, and be prepared to answer some questions on the application form. Your application will then be sent to our hiring leaders for their review and shortlisting.
  2. Video prescreen. All shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a brief video pre-screen. Here are some tips for candidates.
  3. Final interview. All candidates shortlisted from the video pre-screen will be asked to undergo a final interview. This interview can be done via video or in-person and may be hosted by more than one hiring leader.
  4. Background checks. We require all new hires to successfully pass reference, credit and criminal record checks.
  5. Onboarding. You can expect an orientation with fellow ATB 101 students within the first two weeks of starting.
