Placement Office
« on: November 06, 2013, 05:20:14 PM »
Curious as to how long it took all of you to hear from the Placement Office after receiving legal pre-clearance? I've had a fairly quick application process(applied in Aug, nominated Sept, medically/legally cleared Oct) but it's been a couple weeks without any communication from Placement.

Taking a break for hitting "refresh" on the PC portal.

Nominated, CED, July '14

The next thing you would receive is probably your invitation unless the placement office had further questions for you.  A couple weeks is fine.  I think you should hear something from them in not more than a month or two.

Have any of you heard back from Placement? I am also waiting to hear from them as well and was wondering what your timelines looked like if you had.  Did you end up contacting them as well prior to hearing from them?

I am in the same boat. Applied in august, nominated in september, legal and medical pre-clearance in october. I sent an email to placement updating my skills and experience last week and received this response- "Thank you for the update. It has been included in your file. We appreciate your continued patience and will contact you once we have further information to share. Best Wishes, The Education Placement Desk".
Also my tentative departure date is August.
