Find a summer job
Finding a summer job isn’t always easy when you are new to the job market!
The Ontario government’s Summer Jobs Service can help you find a job in public service or in the private sector.
Watch the ads for summer jobs in your area. You’ll see that a lot of them are within your reach, and if you don’t find anything, you can always create your own.
Let your neighbours know what you can do to help them in exchange for a bit of cash. Reliability is your most useful asset when it comes to finding customers and word-of-mouth advertising could keep you busier than you think!
If you’ve got a passion, why not approach local businesses directly to see if they’ll let you help out and maybe get to know their employees. This is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the workplace environment and find out whether your passion is all it’s cracked up to be. If you like working on cars, for example, offer to be a “gofer” at your local garage. You might end up doing it for free, but the experience you acquire can be a real plus for your future!
