Rank & Match

The Rank/Match system will be used during Phase 1 of the recruitment cycle for January start date terms.  The process follows as such:

  • After interviewing your selected candidates, employers will submit student offer and rankings to the MBiotech program.  Employer rankings are from 1-5 with “1” being the student they want as their first choice for the position
  • Employer rankings should be submitted preferably by the end of the interview day
  • To maintain the integrity of the matching process, employers are asked not to discuss ranking decisions with the candidates or make direct job offers before the rank and match results are made available
  • Employer rankings gets input into IMI Connect system by MBiotech staff
  • Students who have been ranked will have access to view their rankings online.  They will be able to see online “Ranked or Not Ranked”
  • Students will have 24hrs to input their own rankings for these positions into IMI Connect as #1, #2 #3
  • On the Rank/Match day, all direct matches are made first #1 employer choice with #1 student choice and then the #2 to #5 rankings will be matched
  • Not all students are matched during this cycle.  There are no deadlines in the continuous cycle that follows the Rank & Match process
  • Phase 2 is less structured and employers can submit job postings at any time and interviews and offers will follow on a continuous basis

Phase 2 – Continuous Postings
