Why have you chosen to apply to CGI?
CGI has a unique culture where they value freedom to innovate and develop a successful career. They value customer feedback and always work on bettering themselves which is something I aspire to do at school and during my hobbies. The size and complexity (lots of different solutions and projects in multiple countries) of the business will give me the opportunity to use your wide range of resources to further my knowledge on project management, which is why I am particularly interested in working for CGI.
