Before you know it, school will be finished for the year and you can begin planning your summer!
You may already have some exciting plans for the summer. But have you
thought about how you are going to pay for these plans? If not, consider
finding a summer job.
You may be thinking that looking for a job isn’t easy, especially if
you’re not sure where to start. Well, we have the solution. The Walkerton
Service Canada Centre for Youth (SCCY) is here to help you with your job
search! If you are looking for casual, part-time or full-time summer
employment, the SCCY is a great place to start.
The centre acts as a link between youth and employers looking for summer
workers. Our offices post job vacancies from employers and provide young people
with easy access to these jobs. All of the employers who post jobs with our
office are specifically looking to fill these positions with young people.
A thorough job search means researching more than one source to find job openings. In addition to the SCCY, there are many other sources of potential summer jobs. Other possible sources to consider when you are looking for a job include:
We want to increase awareness of the services that the SCCY provides, reach employers and students, provide information on health and safety, and increase awareness of the job bank.
The booth will mainly target employers, especially those wanting to post odd jobs. The market is in the middle of downtown, so many employers will be browsing the different booths, as will college students and high school students.I want to get employers involved with our program and services, and make them realize that getting involved in the SCCY is a good opportunity to find young, hardworking people to fill their positions. I also want to provide health and safety information so employers know they can send their employees to the SCCY office to learn about health and safety rules and regulations.
Visit the Walkerton SCCY located at 200 McNabb Street is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can reach the centre by phone at (519) 881-2305, by fax at (519) 881-0377or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Job postings are available online at www.jobbank.gc.ca, under “Student/Youth Job Search”, “Ontario” and then “Walkerton and area.”
