If you're planning on attending the SCCY CNE Job Fair, here are some things to keep in mind:

1.) Take public transit. If going by the TTC, take the subway to Dufferin station and then take the 29 Dufferin bus southbound to the "Dufferin Gate Loop" stop. If you're going by GO Train, 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 along Saskatchewan Road and then head north on Dufferin Street.

2.) Get your resume and cover letter ready. Download the free cover letter and resume templates I've developed. And if you need help, job fair staff will be on hand each day to help you tailor your resume and cover letter for the job(s) you want.

3.) Bring photo ID with you in case you get an on-the-spot job offer.

4.) Dress professionally - khakis or dress pants and a button shirt are perfect. And bring a sweater or rain jacket because the weather near the lake can change quickly.

5.) Arrive early to register for an interview slot because the job fair works on a first come, first served basis. Employers have a limited number of interview slots and the slots for the popular jobs fill quickly.

6.) After registering for an interview, stay close to the job fair area and don't leave. You may lose your spot if the job fair staff call you name and you don't show up.

7.) Bring activities like games, cards, or a book, along with drinks and snacks since the job fair is in an area where there isn't much going on.

8.) Have fun!

Good luck - and remember to come back later for an updated list of employers attending tomorrow!
