Congratz! Once you are out there, you might see me once in a blue moon during jury selection...

what location... edmonton?

I did talk to a lurker here that was eliminated after choosing one location, hopefully things go my way. If I had been a bit more Johnny on the spot I would have asked in my interview if "all of the above" was an appropriate answer to where I wanted to work. I want to work in AB. Oh well, we'll see by end of Sept, so sayeth the email.
heard that Calg and Red deer were filled...then I know one spot was freed up for red deer due to failed psych...spots were limited for those two spots 3 and 2 ... i personally only mentioned 1 preference since i chose to be honest and not waste HRs time down the road if it came down to it

Is there any advice or insight you can give towards what the interview will be like, or any other things I should look into prior to the interview? Thanks!
for BC or Alberta? sounds like BC

Hiring is done as-needed. There isnt really a schedule, and the pace of recruit classes has changed as the funding and vacancies do. Unless you're somewhere out of province or remote, and PARE's are hard to schedule, I'd just save your money and wait until positions are advertised. If you're keeping an eye on the openings, you'll have enough notice to get it done when you need it.
