It's summer and while we may just want to laze away the hot days, we still have to pay the rent. Or at least make enough money to buy ourselves a 10-litre pitcher of sangria.
So whether you're just looking for a little extra cash or looking to change your career path, make your way to the Jobs Canada Fair held at the Holiday Inn downtown this month.
The fair is held 6 times a year in Montreal and features exhibitors from industries across the board like Health Care, Mining, Engineering, Finance, Administration, Accounting, Collections, Advertising, Marketing, Media, Telecommunications, Technology, and Tourism - just to name a few.
Applying for jobs can be a painstaking task: constantly updating your CV until you can't see straight, night terrors from writing and rewriting cover letters, scheduling interviews that don't impede on your current work schedule. It's exhausting just to think about it.
This is your chance to get a face-to-face with recruiters, HR managers, and directors of the companies you want to work with.
The great thing about this job fair is they're there to woo you, too. You get to talk to the people that actually make the decisions, you can ask questions, get a feel for their company, and show off your sparkling personality instead of sitting behind a computer waiting for a response.
Montreal Job Fair welcomes everyone from international students to skilled workers to adult professionals. It doesn't matter if you're looking for something temporary or more long term - so are they!
It's completely free to enter but MAKE SURE you register beforehand here. And don't be surprised if a company contacts you before the fair debuts.
If you're looking for a job in Montreal (and even surrounding areas), this is the best spot to start your search.
At the very least, there's air conditioning.
