Over 300 positions need to be filled at Yorkdale Shopping Centre for the holiday season, and an employment event is taking place on September 27 to help hire for the jobs.
Toronto Mayor John Tory will be taking part in launching the hiring fair on Wednesday, which is the largest Yorkdale hiring event to date with over 35 participating retailers.
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.
According to the City, through this partnership, the Toronto Employment & Social Services (TESS) and its Employment Ontario partner agencies identify and match qualified candidates to available opportunities. The candidates are coached and provided with resumé and interview support prior to the recruitment event.
Retailers at the hiring event are looking to fill part-time and full-time permanent and seasonal positions. Candidates should arrive professionally dressed and have a hard copy of their resumé.
