Apply for the position you’re interested in on our career page. You will be asked to fill out some personal information as well as some additional information regarding your professional expectations.

The purpose of this interview is to verify your ambitions and ensure a sustainable career transition to a position that is right for you.
3. Interview (45 minutes to1 ½ hours)
At iA, our interviews are behavioural-based, allowing you to showcase yourself with concrete examples drawn from your experience and achievements. Please note that our interviews are conducted primarily via video conference and that two individuals are present in order to gather different points of view and reduce the risk of bias. Afterwards, a follow-up is done with you, whether or not you are chosen for the position.
4. Background check (Usually 48 hours)
Due to the nature of the company’s services and operations, we are required to verify the criminal records of job applicants and, for some positions, credit history, education and professional standing are also verified. Your consent is required for this step.
