Finding Employment

It can be challenging to find paid work – particularly paid work that is both enjoyable and meaningful. We have some tips for you to help with this process!

Preliminary Questions

There are some questions that it is helpful to ask yourself before starting your job search.

  • Are you looking for full-time, part-time, or casual work? How many hours can you commit to?
  • What sort of work do you imagine yourself doing?
  • How will you get to work? How far, and where, are you able to travel for work?

Searching for Work

Although we often turn to the internet when searching for jobs, there are other ways of finding employment too. Consider:

  • Asking your family and friends whether they know of any jobs or opportunities.
  • Speaking with your teachers, counsellors, or coaches. Using your personal network can be a great way to hear about jobs and find new opportunities. They might even “put in a good word” with the person or organization that is hiring!
  • Looking around your community and asking community members. For example, try looking for job postings or asking staff about getting a job in stores, restaurants, businesses, and organizations near your home.

Here are some links for online job searching. Please note that there are lots of other search engines online to use as well!
