Youth Summer Employment - The Time is NOW! 

You may be thinking that it is too early to start looking for summer employment but you are absolutely wrong!  January and February are when some of the best full-time and well-paying summer positions become available for students.  Below you will  find summaries of just a few of those opportunities that can help you build your professional work experience and even be very beneficial to you in your adult years.

1. FSWEP (Federal Student Work Experience Program)
FSWEP offers full-time students valuable, hands-on experience related to their field of study and allows for a wealth of learning opportunities. Students have the opportunity to work anywhere across Canada. Although students are not required to have previous work experience to apply, they must meet the following eligibility criteria
- Registered as a full-time secondary or post-secondary student in an accredited institution
- currently recognized as having full-time status by the academic institution 
- returning to full-time studies in the next academic term
To learn more about the FSWEP program and how to apply open link below.


2. SJS (Summer Job Services)
Students aged 15 to 30, planning to return to school in the fall have the opportunity to work with a local business or on a farm as well as for a not-for-profit and other community organizations. This 16 week summer incentive is available from April 1 to September 30. However it is best to visit an Employment Services center during February and March to get a head start on all the other students who will be looking for summer positions. The SJS program provides free job-search and self-marketing support during the months leading up to the summer and also during the summer months. However it's best to start early so you are not competing with other students and so you have more jobs to choose from. 
To learn more about the SJS program and how to apply please visit the link below.



3. Municipal Government Summer Jobs 

 Offers full-time and part-time recreation jobs working with children, youth, adults and seniors. You can work in various program areas, including aquatics, arts and culture, camps, pre-school, community programs, fitness and wellness and sports. Jobs are located across the city in community centres, parks, pools, arenas and city-owned museums and cultural centres.

 For more information on Summer Employment with the city of Toronto see link below.



 What is great about all three programs is that you can apply to all three at the same time to ensure that you have the best chance of securing employment during the summer.  The bonus for young people is that once you are in with any level of government you are in!  If you keep your employment record with FSWEP or with any levels of government in good standing meaning you work during the summer or winter breaks you can apply for internal permanent position after graduation if you meet the job requirements.   Good luck! Happy Job Hunting! 

2015 Employment Hits and Misses 

 We hear a lot about how Toronto's unemployment rate is making it virtually impossible for anyone to find employment these days, and that maybe we should start looking to other provinces or cities for employment opportunities.  But what if moving is not an option?  I see jobs all the time when I am on Charity Village, the Public Service Commission website and even the jobbank website.  Nonetheless with the New Year come new trends so here is a top 5 list of the best industries to look for employment for 2015.


Sectors anticipating the most hiring

1.       Finance, Insurance & Real Estate sector

2.       IT/Technology sector

3.       Manufacturing − Durables

4.       Public Administration

5.       Construction

6.       Transportation & Public Utilities


However there are those industries too that I want you to be aware of that do not have the most positive outlook for the coming year.  Yes you will see job postings for the industries below however they will be mostly contract work or part-time work and there is a chance that the number of people applying will outnumber the number of available positions.


Sectors with the lowest projected hiring

1.       Manufacturing − Non-Durables sector

2.       Mining sector

3.       Education

4.       Retail
