Holiday season jobs still available

The Toronto Santa Claus Parade has come and gone!

Malls across the country are now open later - some have even had their first Midnight Madness sale.

And stores are now playing Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" on repeat.

That's right, the holiday season is officially upon us and that means prime job hunting season is well underway!

As I've talked about before, now is a great time to find a holiday season job, especially since the ongoing economic concerns have forced some managers to delay their hiring into November and early December.

And so today, I'll be offering information on a great full- or part-time mall job opportunity for those in the Greater Toronto Area who are crafty, inventive, and flexible enough to work a variety of shifts.

Wraps Capriccio, a gift wrapping service that operates in a number of malls across the Greater Toronto Area during the busy holiday season, is looking to hire Gift Wrappers and Customer Service Managers to staff its locations in malls in downtown Toronto and in Brampton.

In a nutshell, those hired as Gift Wrappers are responsible for wrapping gifts based on certain specifications and techniques. In addition, you will also interact with customers, help management keep the area clean, and assist in the opening and closing of the location.

Similarly, those hired as a Customer Service Manager will be in charge of a specific location. That means opening and closing the location daily, coordinating and scheduling a team of Gift Wrappers, and wrapping gifts as needed. As well, you will be responsible for all cash transactions, including nightly accounting and reporting duties.

These positions are great for both post-secondary and high school students. And for those creatively-inclined, Wraps Capriccio gives you a chance to flex your creativity muscles by designing truly awe-inspiring gift wrap designs.

To apply for either position, you can either:

1. Complete the relevant Wraps Capriccio online application form

or

2. Download, complete, and submit a Wraps Capriccio application form.

Regardless of which way you apply, if you are successful, you will receive an email or phone call inviting you to a Wrap Seminar & Job Fair, usually held in late November in downtown Toronto near the Bathurst & Bloor area.

If you are invited to the job fair, bring a well-written resume and the contact information for your references.

For more information or to find out the status of your application, you can contact Wraps Capriccio directly via e-mail.

Good luck!
