CNE Job Fair ... August 11th info

We're about halfway through the 2010 Service Canada Centre for Youth CNE Job Fair and it's been a rousing success - more than 150 students have already landed their dream job with this year's Canadian National Exhibition (CNE).

And don't worry if you haven't been able to make it down to the action at the Dufferin Gates - the hiring continues today with restaurant, retail, and concession stand companies looking to hire more than 40 students.

Plus, if you're looking for a part-time job for the school year, you're in luck because one particular restaurant company is looking to fill more than 50 positions.

Manchu Wok will be at the job fair from 10:00am to 1:00pm. They are looking to hire ten (10) Counter Attendants.

Entertainment Liquidators will be at the job fair from 11:00am to 1:00pm. They are looking to hire ten (10) Sales Associates.

Premier Amusements will be at the job fair from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. They are looking to hire twenty (20) Game Concession Operators.

Centreplate will be at the job fair from 8:00am to 4:00pm. They are looking to hire two (2) First Cooks, ten (10) Cashiers, ten (10) Food & Beverage Servers, ten (10) Bartenders, three (3) Bar Stewards, five (5) Equipment Development Technicians, and five (5) Service/Catering Bartenders.

The 2010 Service Canada CNE Job Fair will take place at the Dufferin Gates, which are located at 10 Dufferin Street, across from Medieval Times.

The best way to get there is via public transit.

If you're going via TTC, take the subway to Dufferin station and take the 29 Dufferin bus southbound to the 'Dufferin Gate Loop' stop.

Or, if you're travelling by Go Transit, take the Lakeshore West Go Train to Exhibition. Exit the station and walk west on Manitoba Drive to Saskatchewan Road. Continue west on Saskatchewan Road until you reach Dufferin Street.

And before you head down, take a look at the list of suggestions I recommend to those planning on attending this year's job fair. And I've recently added some great tips on what hiring managers are looking for in your resume and how to ace your job interview.

For more information on the Service Canada CNE Job Fair, contact the Service Canada Centre for Youth - Dufferin Mall location at 416 583 4806.

Good luck!
