As the holiday season approaches (sorry to tell you, but it’s going to happen), Winnipeg retailers are seeking seasonal employees to help fill the demand of the Christmas rush.
St. Vital Centre is holding its annual job fair on Thursday, October 8, pairing job applicants with potential employers for full-time, part-time and holiday positions.
“This is a great event to connect for a conversation with the manager of your favourite store. Maybe before Christmas you’ll be working there,” said Cindy Shack, marketing director for St. Vital Centre.
More then 25 retail employers will be present, including Danier Leather, Pearle Vision, Swarovski, Bentley, Red River Co-Op, Sport Chek and Victoria’s Secret/Pink.
Youth Employment Services will be on hand providing resume advice and interview tips for anyone looking for extra guidance in their skills.
The job fair runs from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. in centre court.
