Applications for summer student jobs are accepted in early January and the positions are typically filled by the end of February.

Teck uses a behavioural interviewing process. In behavioural interviews you will have the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and abilities, collectively known as ‘competencies’, by giving specific examples from your past experiences. A behavioural interview gives you the opportunity to show a prospective employer why you are well suited for the job.
Navigating your way through these interviews successfully requires that you know yourself completely. In short, you must be able to:
- Analyze the type of positions for which you’re applying. What skills does it require?
- Analyze your own background. What skills do you have that relate to your job objective?
- Identify specific examples from your past experience where you demonstrated those skills. How can you “tell a story” about your use of particular skills or knowledge? Concentrate on developing complete answers based on your problem, action and result.
- Whenever possible, quantify your results. Numbers help illustrate your level of efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, authority and responsibility.
- Be prepared to provide examples of when results did not turn out as you had planned. What did you do then?
- Before starting the interview process, identify two to three of your top ‘selling points’ and determine how you will convey these points during the interview.
