On June 15, the TDSB’s Next Steps Employment Centre in Riverdale held a Community Job Fair at the S. Walter Stewart Library. MGR Construction Services, Apotex Advancing Generics, Paragon Security, VHA Home HealthCare, Stock and Soup Nutsy were among employers exhibiting at the fair. This event gave 184 job seekers the chance to meet employers face to face to talk about various job categories such as Personal Support Workers, Customer Service Representatives, General Skilled Labourers, Food Handlers, Security Officers, School Bus Drivers and many more.
Some comments from employers who participated in this Job Fair include:
"…met and exceeded expectations!"
"Excellent turnout, please contact us for your next fair."
Job seekers commented:
"good employment opportunity."
"This Job Fair was excellent!"
"It is helping us to find good jobs."
