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 introductory 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. For details on the process, please see Submission Details and Parameters below.

- 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.
