So I get invited to a summer job interview with Service Canada, scheduled smack in the middle of my heavy university exam schedule. I'm told to be ready to make a 5 minute presentation. I travel to Halifax between exams for the interview. The first question is "can you name the 6 main services provided by Service Canada?"

What? I can't name them all so the interview is over! What is this - Candid Camera in Bizarro World? I'm told I should know this and the name of the Minister in charge. Like I should study government departments rather than for exams! Like knowing that information gives any kind of assessment of my abilities and people skills. Would anybody who doesn't know somebody inside of Service Canada know to be ready for this question? Is this part of a scam to make sure only family and friends of Service Canada employees get hired? This stinks and Service Canada needs to be cleaned more than Halifax Harbour!
