Frequently asked questions about applying to the WSIB
How should I prepare for an assessment for the position?
Why am I being asked about my diversity information?
As part of the application process, we ask you to voluntarily provide your diversity information. Like many other leading organizations, we are collecting diversity information for our own internal research to determine where we might have gaps and structural barriers that need to be addressed within our recruitment policies and processes. This is part of our commitment to building an inclusive work environment.
The diversity information you provide is kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with the people who make decisions about who to hire. We combine all of the information we collect into reports and take great care to ensure that no individual can be identified.
What does it mean when a job posting indicates that we are "recruiting for future opportunities to build a qualified candidate pool?"
For some positions, we look to build a qualified candidate pool for future vacancies.
Once you are notified that you have been placed in a qualified pool, you will remain there until vacancies arise.
We will notify candidates and provide updates on potential hire dates.
What should I do if I have technical issues when uploading my application to your job portal?
Here are some tips:
- The system will let you upload only one document. Please ensure that your resume, cover letter and any other documentation are submitted as one document. Microsoft Word and PDF formats are preferred.
- When uploading your document, please ensure the file name does not contain special characters, symbols or accents (e.g., : \ / ? * [ ] é).
- If you are asked to respond to a questionnaire, the system will not accept your application until you have responded to all the questions. Please check that you have not left out any responses.
- You may apply only once to each job posting.
- You can save your application in the portal and submit it at a later date. However, make sure you submit it before the closing date of the posting.
