Where Top Employers Find Top Engineering Talent
OSPE’s Virtual E3s connect some of Ontario’s best engineering employers with the profession’s top talent. Prior to the event, candidates submit their resume and a video answering the screening questions provided in each job description. Selected candidates are invited to a 15-minute virtual meeting with their prospective employer(s) on the event date.

Q1. Can I use my smartphone or tablet if it has a camera?
- Yes. However, during the live video meeting with employers, we recommend using a computer for more stability and control.
Q2. How can I avoid common technical issues, and how can I solve them should they arise?
- Ensure that your web browser has been given access to your device’s camera and microphone in your browser’s Settings panel. Refresh your browser after making these changes.
- If you have granted permission and are still having issues, click on this icon in the VIC to identify your browser and the solution:
- Test your external web cam and microphone in advance, if you are using these devices.
- Note: We recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox as your web browser.
Q3. What if I’m not selected for a live video meeting with an employer?
- Registering and paying your video processing fee guarantees that your submission will be reviewed by the employer you apply to, but it does not guarantee that an employer will request a live video meeting with you. If you are not selected to attend a live video meeting, you will be notified by email 3 days before the event.
- Make sure your lighting source is in front of you to make it easy to see you on camera.
- Control your environment (silence your cell phone, etc.) to avoid outside noises and distractions.
- Dress for success.
- Make eye contact with the camera, not your screen.
- Introduce yourself when answering your first question, and smile at the camera. This is your opportunity to connect with the person who will review your video.
- Avoid reading out or memorizing your answers – this can come off as unnatural. Instead, use the checklist feature on the left of the video frame to create talking points for yourself.
- Relax, and try to avoid fast or sudden movements as they can affect the video quality.
- Remember: there is no perfect answer or video introduction.
