Students looking for part-time jobs will head to the Pen Centre next week for the annual Shop for Jobs event.
Sixteen employers at the local mall will do on-the-spot interviews with students on Tuesday, Sept. 13. The event – arranged by Brock’s Career Services, Niagara College and the Pen Centre – runs from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
Shop for Jobs gives Brock and Niagara College students a chance to meet managers face to face and apply for potential employment.
“This event is helpful for every student looking for part-time job to offset the cost of going to school,” said Lisa Kuiper, Career Services employment development co-ordinator.
Students should be “dressed for success” and have hard copies of their resumes, as well as be prepared with a 30-second spiel about themselves, she said.
More than 600 students attended last year. Participating stores are:
- American Eagle
- Bath and Body Works
- Benix & Co.
- Continental Currency
- Garage Clothing
- Jean Machine
- L.A. Brew
- Neat Stuff
- RW & Co.
- Suzy Shier
Shop for Jobs is “a great opportunity to improve your resume, practice your interview skills and ultimately gain a part-time job while completing your studies,” said Lia Mancuso, a Career Services senior career assistant.
