Competition Structure Help

Competition will automatically Fill once the number of candidates indicated in "Number of Openings" are Hired.

How Do The Student Programs Work?

Summer Students
The Career Centre hosts several different application forms for students, based on the nature of summer student work that the Government of Saskatchewan offers. The questions contained in each application form are customized to the nature of the work. Students can submit one or multiple application forms depending on their interests, qualifications, and experience.

As a summer student job becomes available, the hiring manager submits a Taleo requisition to the Summer Student Program Coordinator. The hiring manager provides an overview of the position, competencies required, and desired answers to prescreening questions. The Summer Student Program Coordinator searches Taleo for students whose applications match the position’s requirements, based on the competencies and prescreening questions, and refers the students to the hiring manager for consideration.

Co-op Students
Hiring Managers work directly with the educational institutions (University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, and Saskatchewan Polytech) to obtain Co-op students.

Taleo is typically not used to hire co-op students. If it is used, it is strictly for purposes of obtaining ministry approval and (sometimes) producing the Commencement document.

Students Less-Than-Full-Time
Hiring Managers sometimes use Taleo to advertise a student-less-than-full-time opportunity. Contact the Summer Student Program Coordinator at student.summer@gov.sk.ca for assistance.
If converting a student between the different student programs, Taleo is typically not part of the process, but may be used in order to obtain approvals.

Posting, Advertisement, and Comeptencies Help

Summer Student

Individual summer student competitions are not advertised on the Career Centre.

Students apply through one or multiple application forms depending on their interests, qualifications, and experience.

Hiring Managers submit a Taleo requisition to the Summer Student Program Coordinator, who searches for candidates who match the position’s requirements.  To ensure you receive candidates who meet your needs, ensure the following:

  • Career Centre Advertisement field: provide an overview of the position's responsibilities
  • Competencies: provide a list of competencies required for thee position
  • Prescreening Questions: candidates have already answered the questions which are automatically associated with your requisition. For each question, indicate which answers are required/assets for the position you're staffing. Do not add/remove questions.

Co-op Students

Hiring Managers work directly with the educational institutions (University of Regina, University of Saskatchewan, and Saskatchewan Polytech) to obtain Co-op students. 

Taleo is typically not used to hire co-op students.  If it is used, it is strictly for purposes of obtaining ministry approval and (sometimes) producing the Commencement document.

Students Less-Than-Full-Time

Hiring Managers sometimes use Taleo to advertise a student-less-than-full-time opportunity.  In that case, ensure the Advertisement, Competencies, and Prescreening Questions are completed appropriately, as candidates will apply directly to the job posting.

If converting a student between the different student programs, Taleo is typically not part of the process, but may be used in order to obtain approvals.

Student Prescreening Help

Summer Student: Do not add/remove questions.  Candidates have already answered the questions which are automatically associated with your requisition when they applied to the Summer Student Program.  For each prescreening question, indicate which answers are required/assets for the position you’re staffing.  This is very important to ensure the students referred to you match the position’s requirements. 

Co-op Student:  Prescreening questions are not used for Co-op student opportunities.

Student Less-Than-Full-Time:  Your requisition will automatically include some prescreening questions which are required for statistical and/or eligibility purposes.  Do not remove questions 1 or 2.  You may remove and/or add any other questions you want the candidates to answer when they apply.
