Yorkdale isn’t just a place to go shopping. It’s also THE place to go shopping for a job this week.
More than 300 positions need to be filled at Yorkdale Shopping Centre for the upcoming holiday season, and the hiring fair taking place this Thursday, September 27, is the perfect place for you if you’re seeking seasonal work.
So here’s what you need to know:
When: Thursday, September 27
Time: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (registration begins at 9:45 a.m.)
Where: Yorkdale Shopping Centre
What To Bring
Candidates should arrive professionally dressed with hard copies of their resumés. (Pro-tip: Cover letters never hurt either, even if you’re not asked for one.)
When To Come
Some candidates have been pre-screened by the city’s Employment and Social Services. Those candidates will get the first appointments that day, up until noon. However, it’s important to arrive for registration early, which begins at 9:45 a.m.
Where To Go
The hiring fair will take place near Restoration Hardware and near Village Juicery on the west end of the shopping centre.
The employment event is part of an ongoing partnership between Yorkdale and the City of Toronto that has helped fill more than 1,500 retail positions since it launched in 2012.
