Thank you for your interest in CGI. Below you’ll find answers to frequently asked questions regarding CGI careers and employment.

WARNING - Please be aware of unsolicited and fraudulent job offers


Do I need to create a profile to apply for a job?

To apply for a position, you must create your candidate profile first. Access the My profile page to create your profile and submit your resume. Once you have saved this profile, you can then apply for positions of interest.


How do I apply for a position at CGI?

Search for careers opportunities, select a position of interest and click I’m interested to apply. If you are a first-time user, your first step will be to create a career profile, which you will be able to re-use each time you apply for a position with CGI.

How do I apply for an internship?

Search for internship opportunities by selecting Students internship in the Employment type field of the search career opportunities page.


Do I have to fill out a new profile each time I apply for a position?

If you create a profile, you will not have to fill out an application form each time you want to apply for a new career opening. As a returning user, you also may log into your profile at any time and update it.


Should I list all of my skills in the application form?

The more skills you specify, the greater the chance that your application will be selected by our recruitment team. Also, please rank your skills in order of greatest experience.


How can I follow up on my application for a position?

Please note that each CGI geographic region manages its own career postings. As a result, we do not centrally maintain and have access to application information. Also, please note that only candidates selected for interviews are contacted. Resumes, however, are kept for a certain period of time and considered for future career openings. To access your local careers section, go to the Careers homepage, click on Explore careers in your geography located in the banner and choose the appropriate country.


What will happen after I submit my application for a specific position?

Please allow some time for recruiters to review your application. Our team of recruiters will assess the applications received and will contact those applicants who are chosen for an interview. If you are not contacted for a specific position for which you applied, all resumes submitted through our online application tool are kept for a certain period of time for future consideration.

How can I search for open positions?

You can perform a quick search by using the search tool on the Careers homepage or by accessing the Search career opportunities page directly. For more search criteria, click on the search button and go to Advanced Search Parameters.


How do I search for specific positions?

You can search for specific positions by entering the title of the position in the Keyword field of the Search career opportunities page. Only positions with this specific title will be filtered. If you see a position that appeals to you, make note of its Position ID. Next time you visit our website, you can enter this Position ID in the appropriate field under Advanced Search Parameters to pull up that specific listing.


Can I view only recent positions?

Positions appear in order from most recent to oldest. The most recent position appears on top only when you do not sort to a specific column.


How can I stay informed about new career opportunities?

Subscribe to CGI’s career alerts, and we will notify you by email as soon as an opening matches your criteria and provide a link for you to view the opportunity. This career alerts link will remain active for 90 days. You may unsubscribe from career alerts at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the registration page.

Do I need to apply for a position to create a profile?

No, you do not need to apply for a specific position before creating a profile. Access the My profile page, and follow the steps for creating or updating your profile. Your information will be saved in the system for a certain period of time, and, as recruiters perform searches on the database, they will immediately have access to your profile. Keep your profile up to date to ensure your skills are appropriately matched to new CGI opportunities.


How can I upload my resume?

You can upload your resume or other documents when you create a new profile or via the My documents page upon logging in. There are four ways to upload documents:

  • Using local files from your own operating system
  • Signing in with LinkedIn
  • Using Dropbox online storage
  • Using Google Drive online storage

When uploading documents, you need to define the type of document that you are uploading and then click Attach document.


I cannot log into my profile. I receive an Invalid password or Authorized users only message. What should I do?

Click on Forgot your password? above the login button. Enter your email address in the field provided, and click Send. An email containing the reset password link will be sent automatically to the email address provided.

If you are still experiencing problems with the new password, type in the password rather than cutting and pasting it from the email that was sent to you. Sometimes an extra space can be copied by mistake, which will render your password invalid.
