Acing applications - top tips from a global employer!

Founded in 1976, CGI is the fifth largest independent information technology and business process services firm in the world. You can be part of something amazing and join us as a graduate or placement student! 

Our Technical Graduate opportunities are for those interested in technical roles such as programming, development and testing. 

Our Business Graduate opportunities would suit those who have a strong passion for technology and working in the technology sector but with a greater client focus. 

The majority of our Industrial Placement students come from an IT/Computer Science background but we also consider other STEM degrees as long as an applied interest in computing, development or testing is demonstrated outside of their degree course.

For all of our student opportunities, CGI’s online application form is an important part of the recruitment process.  Here are our top tips for applying!


  • Be honest – we’ll verify all results and statements of achievement during the process. 
  • Be inclusive – we’re interested in all your skills and experiences so don’t just write down the ones you think we’re interested in; we want to know everything about you!
  • Be passionate – we want people who want to work for us, so use the application form to show why you’ve chosen CGI over one of our competitors. 
  • Spelling and Grammar - please check for mistakes in spelling and grammar before you submit your application. This may be pointing out the obvious but every year we receive a significant number of application forms littered with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. If you’ve spent some time working on the application form have a break before proofreading, or perhaps ask a friend to read it so you get a fresh view.
