Summer Job Spotlight ... Job fair this Friday!

If you're free this coming Friday (May 6th) and you're still looking for a summer job, you'll want to consider checking out the annual summer job fair organized by two Toronto City Councillors, Michael Thompson and Glenn de Baeremaeker.

Held every year in May, this summer job fair provides a great opportunity to tap into last-minute summer jobs while also offering an opportunity to explore and learn about potential career paths.

This year the job fair will take place at the Scarborough Civic Centre on Friday, May 6, 2011 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

There are many employers scheduled to attend, including:

- RBC
- Sunlife
- Toronto Zoo
- Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment
- CIBC
- UPS Canada

If you've never been to the Scarborough Civic Centre, download a free map here. Located at 150 Borough Drive, it's pretty much right across from the TTC and GO Bus stations at Scarborough Town Centre.

INSIDER'S TIP: If you don't have a Social Insurance Number, give yourself some extra time before the job fair begins and visit the
Scarborough Service Canada Centre. Since you're a quick 2 minute walk from the office, bring along the required primary piece of identification and apply in person. It only takes a few minutes and you'll need it once you start working.

For more information on the upcoming job fair, visit Councillor Michael Thompson's website.

If you do decide to go, make sure you've got an outstanding resume and cover letter that highlights your experience and skills. If you don't have a resume or cover letter, download the resume and cover letter templates I've developed.

Have fun - and good luck!
