CNE Job Fair ... August 9th info

The annual SCCY CNE Job Fair is set to continue on August 9th. So get your cover letter and resume ready and head down to the Dufferin Gates located at 10 Dufferin Street because there's more than 100 jobs available!

Here is an up-to-date list of the employers scheduled to attend the SCCY CNE Job Fair on August 9th:

4 Sales Associates.

Astro Amusements will be at the job fair from 10:00am to 12:00pm and they are looking to hire 40 Amusement Ride Attendants and 40 Game Attendants.

Manchu Wok will be at the job fair from 1:00pm to 4:00pm and they are looking to hire 10 Counter Attendants.

Entertainment Liquidators will be at the job fair from 1:00pm to 2:00pm and they are looking to hire 10 Sales Associates.

Chicago Fries, Swiss Waffles, and Angel Garden Chinese Food will be at the job fair from 2:00pm to 4:00pm and they are looking to hire a number of Counter Attendants, Food Handlers, and Customer Service Representatives.

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!

What time would you say I should line up for the job? Should I be there around 7 or 8?

Andrew Hercules said...

The earlier the better - some people were lining up at 6am. Usually days with popular employers (e.g. Pizza Pizza, Astro Amusements, Canadian Midway, etc.) tend to attract the most applicants so arriving early is best.

Good luck!
