Our Recruitment Process

Learn and grow by working with talented, high-performing individuals.

Connect with CPP Investments

 

Our Campus Recruitment team is active year-round, connecting with students and planning recruitment events to promote our many opportunities. The team is most active in the Fall, when we recruit our largest numbers of students. Please visit your University Career centre to see when we’ll next be on your campus. You’ll also find other ways to connect with us.

 

CPP Investments’ Campus Recruitment team actively supports student-run clubs and conferences and often presents during these events through keynotes, workshops and networking sessions. We hope to see you on campus and share why CPP Investments is a great place to invest in your future career.

 

While we spend a lot of our time connecting with students, we can’t visit every University campus. Please use the resources below to learn more about CPP Investments and how seriously we take the work we do to fulfill our mandate to invest for the benefit of 20 million Canadians.

Interview Process

recruitment Process 1 Hfrhdis.original

If you are selected for an interview, our recruitment team will contact you directly. This will include clear instructions regarding what is expected and how many interview rounds will be required. Interviews are typically held in our office. We can accommodate Skype interviews for candidates unable to travel.

 

Our recruitment process may include, but is not limited to, behavioural interviews, case studies, group discussions and skill testing.

 

Normally, there are two interview rounds. The first is one-to-two hours in length, during which you will meet with members of the hiring department. The second round will be longer, consisting of four interviews during which you will meet with a variety of department representatives and HR professionals.

 

Case-based questions or technical questions will be part of this process to help us better determine your thought process and how you generate answers. In some situations, you may receive a case in advance and be asked to come prepared to speak about how to build a financial model and evaluate a company.
