My experience has been that they will usually look at education, then experience, in comparing applicants for most jobs so, if your education isn't up to speed, you'll automatically be shuffled to the bottom of the deck. Especially during a time like now where downturns in various industries make a guv'mint job look more attractive.
All of my experience is with the Federal Public Service job site. The thing is that most of the internal job postings have lower education requirements and most of the ones I applied for were mostly high school. From what I understand is that you're supposed to get some kind of answer for internal applications so it's been kind of disheartening not hearing back from any of the postings, even though I tend to apply to job postings where my experience fits the requirements and I got a professionally drafted cv. The only conclusion I can draw is that a lot of the HR departments are ignoring the new legislation with regards to the hiring of veterans and canadian forces personnel.
