Indigenous Voluntary Self-Declaration
Self-declaring helps the Winnipeg Health Region determine if it is meeting its goals in developing a representative workforce. Indigneous applicants seeking employment within the Winnipeg Health Region are encouraged to self-declare. You can self-declare when you create your online profile on the Winnipeg Health Region careers website. Additionally, you can self-declare in various methods such as your cover letter, resume, and profile.
After You Apply
It takes time for the job competition to close and for the hiring package to be sent to the hiring manager. Paper screening is based on the posted qualifications for the position. The hiring manager will contact the applicants who are selected for an interview. This process can take from four to six weeks. In preparing for an interview you will want to research the organization and the position. You should prepare questions that you would like to ask the interviewers regarding the position. Many interviews are panel interviews, meaning there will be more than one person interviewing you for the position. Remember to highlight your past work experience, your knowledge and skills that are relevant to the position. When you are called for an interview, you should bring a current resume and a list of three work related references. It is important to tell your references in advance they may be called. Check out our Job Seeker Handbook for more tips on preparing for an interview.
