I got my conditional letter of employment today, now I can relax a little before I leave for three months in June (Kingston, June 11th).

Congrats to everyone in their stages, and good luck!

I guess I’ll see some of you in June ☺️☺️

My CTP3 starts in PEI in a month and 5 days.

Since sending back my signed conditional offer of employment, I haven't heard a peep.

I'm assuming I'll get told when to start CPT 2, and then get more direction on how to prepare. Is that correct? Or do I start CPT 2 now?
HG, I've been in touch with recruiting and they will send instructions for CTP2, as I had the same question. It's hard not to get a bit anxious because of the time crunch, so don't worry! I feel you haha.

A friend of mine and I had been given our CLO for CTP3 in Kingston June 11, but were both contacted today to say that it was changed to June 18 PEI, then June 13 PEI, so now we are waiting for the updated CLO. Sounds like we'll be seeing each other around on the island!

Cool, thanks. I'm assuming we'll get it all next week sometime. I'm not too worried about the workload but I don't want them to think I'm avoiding it either ;)

I'm going to PM you.

I received my conditional offer of employment on May 3rd to start June 11 at PEI. I've also not heard anything further. My email did say the deadline to return my signed conditional offer will be the 10th of May. So i'm assuming they will send out stage 2 requests after the 10th.

Congrats!!

Do you have to email the stage 2 assignments or just print them?

Your package should have detailed instructions in regards to how to save them, the email address to send them to, and how to back them up in the event the emails do not go through (USB). However you will not be allowed to use a USB stick on the CSC-SCC computers that you are assigned and will need access to a personal computer (laptop?) to access them in that scenario.

PEI in the summer will be so worth it. Winter will be another story. But you get to enjoy PEI weather, seafood and culture! It will be so great!
And flying in and out of Kingston is a very big pain, flight is almost always delayed or late.

Yikes. Keep the seafood away from me! I don't want to drop out of CTP3 due to anaphylaxis. Imagine losing your dream job to a lobster.

PEI is beautiful in the summer! Being away from the family is hard, but it will all be worth it in the end!:)

I agree about the beauty and the seafood; I'm all about the ocean and its fruits! Sorry Hockeyguy - Seafood is one of my weaknesses; I could eat it everyday if I had the chance :)

I emailed to ask the same thing - was told that this number is given to you at CTP3 and was therefore instructed to leave it blank.
