Video testimonial sign-up: Help recruit new members and inspire your colleagues 

At the upcoming Prairie Tune Up, ACFO-ACAF invites you to help recruit new talent to the federal public service and inspire your fellow colleagues by providing a short video testimonial about your work. 

We’re looking to interview ACFO-ACAF members about the following information from our members to help create a short promotional video: 

  • What does your everyday job look like? 
  • What’s your favourite part of working for your department or for the Government of Canada? 
  • What would you say to students who are hesitant to apply to the Government? 

Participating in this video campaign is a great opportunity to: 

  • Be featured in a video that will be shared by TBS, on the ACFO-ACAF website, social media, and in promotional materials; 
  • Attract a new generation of talent to the federal government; and 
  • Re-energize your colleagues across the country by highlighting the sources of pride around the CT Community’s work. 

If you would be interested in participating in the campaign, please visit the following link to sign up for a 20-minute timeslot at the Tune Up:

Timeslots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay in signing up!
