How do I apply? 

 

We believe in relationships over resumes and are focused on learning about who you are and what you’re interested in to uncover your true potential.

  1. Complete your PLUM Profile here and save as a screenshot. 
  2. Complete a one-way video interview here. 
  3. Apply to the role and when the application asks for your resume, instead upload the screenshot of your PLUM Profile and your most recent transcript. 

*To be considered for student opportunities at Scotiabank, Tangerine, and MD Financial you must complete all three steps above. 

 

Application Deadline: August 21, 2022
