1. Mrs. Bridges British Bakery will be at the job fair from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. They are looking to hire four (4) Food & Beverage Servers.

2. Paragon Security will be at the job fair from 9:30am to 4:30pm. They are looking to hire twenty (20) Security Guards.

The best way to get there is via public transit.

TTC: Take the subway to Dufferin station and then take the 29 Dufferin bus southbound and exit at 'Dufferin Gate Loop'.

Go Transit: Take the Lakeshore West train to Exhibition Go Station. After exiting the station, walk west along Manitoba Drive to Saskatchewan Road. Continue to walk west until you reach Dufferin Street and then walk north.

INSIDER TIP: To maximize your time at the CNE job fair, remember these tips:

1. Create an eye-catching cover letter and a resume that stands out from the crowd.

2. Arrive early! Even though the job fair begins at 9am and employers arrive later in the day, you'll want to arrive early to register for interviews with the companies you really want to work for. Get there early so you aren't disappointed!

3. Dress professionally! Business casual is best - you can't go wrong with khakis or dress pants and a button shirt.

4. Bring the following with you: photo ID (in case you get an on-the-spot job offer), activities (there's not much to do around the Dufferin Gates), and snacks/drinks (the food choices in the area are limited).

5. After registering for an interview, do not leave! You may lose your spot and your chance to impress the hiring manager. Stay close by since staff will call your name to let you know that your interview is coming up.

For more information, contact the SCCY - Dufferin Mall staff at 416 583 4806 or sign up for email updates with (at)

Good luck!

Hey! North American Midway finished their hiring during the earlier CNE job fair. There are a few amusement companies looking to hire though - namely Astro Zodiac and Premier. Check out the "CNE Jobs List" and look under "Midway".

Andrew, do you know if Astro Zodiac Enterprises is still hiring? I'm planning to go, please reply. If you could, please tell me the day of which they are going to be there and the time. Thanks so much!

Hey there!

Yes, Astro Zodiac will be hiring Game and Ride Attendants on Monday, August 16th from 10am to 12pm. Because it stands to be a very popular position, I recommend arriving early - it wouldn't surprise me if some people begin lining up as early as 7am!
