Because what I see the Rec dept's not doing and not adhering to national governing bodies and papers, it is so frustrating; part of the frustration is that they never look for professionals in the field...they only look to promote those from within the corporation and who most likely do not have any background/experience in the field prior to being promoted to whatever role they happened to land it.
How many weeks on average does it take for HR to contact applicants for an interview after a job ad closes?
Less than 2 days for them to reject an application when the candidate is more than qualified for the role...confusing, I know! (not a very positive place for candidates/to apply to).
Make sure you're prepared for the interview and any questions they may ask. Have all of your certifications ready and be confident.

There were two interviewers and they asked a few technical questions but most questions were about real life situations
What would you suggest City of Mississauga management do to prevent others from leaving?
Stop discarding highly qualified and experienced candidates from your application pool! less than 2 days after someone applies is not respectful and or ethical, to receive a rejection letter when the candidate(s) are more than enough experienced/qualified for the position they applied to. Such a joke, especially when the rec dept will look at your profiles (noticeably) and then take such negative actions and when you look at their online profiles...they don't meet their own job qualifications (so backwards, in the municipal environment; just stick around long enough and you'll be promoted into some kind of full time unionized tenure position, even if you don't meet the requirements for said job, lol).
