  • The Salon de l’emploi de St-Michel is coming to Montreal this week and is the perfect place to find a Montreal job in a field you will love.
  • From Cirque du Soleil to the SPVM there is really something for everyone.
  • There will also be workshops and opportunities to network, so you don't want to miss it. Details and highlights below!

The Salon de l’emploi de St-Michel is set to be an unprecedented event for Montreal job seekers this week. A collaboration between Carrefour Jeunesse-Emploi (CJE) Center-Nord, the Office of the MPP for Viau, and Vivre Saint-Michel en Santé brings together 20 exciting companies that are looking to recruit people to fill vacant jobs on their teams. The first edition of the Salon de l’emploi de St-Michel will also feature workshops and a networking event. 

Finding a decent career in Montreal can be difficult for some people and the Salon de l’emploi de St-Michel provides a perfect opportunity for eager job seekers to find fulfilling employment with one of Montreal's leading companies.

The event will "provide a platform to meet and exchange with residents of surrounding neighbourhoods, private and institutional employers, training centres, and employability organizations and resources."

Montreal's ever-competitive job market has shown steady growth over the years, especially in tech. But there are still plenty of other career options out there for those who are less tech-inclined. 

At the Salon de l’emploi de St-Michel, you can find a career in education, law enforcement, transport, retail, and more! Once you meet recruiters and hand out CVs, stick around networking cocktail to make some connections. 

Here are just some of the 20 companies that are looking for motivated people like you!
