Summer Job Spotlight ... Escar Entertainment looking for CNE staff

As promised, I've been scouring every job website to find all of the hidden CNE jobs that aren't widely advertised. So far, only a few opportunities have been advertised, but I expect this to change over the coming weeks.

One particular events/games/catering company, Escar Entertainment, is particularly keen to get a head start on hiring their CNE team. They've already begun advertising on Kijiji for Bartenders / Food & Beverage Servers, and Line Cooks!

You'll find the full job descriptions for both jobs below.

To apply for either position, send your resume to staff@escarentertainment.com. Please ensure that your cover letter and resume include your full name, email address, and phone number.

Also, please note that if you're selected for an interview for the Bartender / Food & Beverage Server position, you will need to bring your Food and Beverage Server Certificate or Smart Serve Certificate/Card and proof of your date of birth.
