If you’re looking for a job in Toronto, now's your chance to get hired. The Reference Library will be hosting Toronto's annual Retail Job Fair on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019, to bring employers and future employees together to mingle. Over 700 job seekers are expected to attend the event which is held on the second floor of the library at 789 Yonge Street. The fair runs from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

According to Retail Insider, the job fair has seen overwhelming success over the last few years. 20 well-known retailers have already signed on this year with 10 slots till open for others to join.

The event caters to everyone, from those with entry-level skills to those looking for management positions. It also provides an opportunity for retailers to find driven employees faster, instead of going through the traditional recruitment process. 

Organizers of the event are reminding people to "dress for success" and bring 15 or more copies of their resume to give out. Attendees should also link up with an employment counsellor to prepare beforehand.

Youth aged 19-29 are encouraged to attend between 10:00 a.m. and noon, while other interested parties can attend between noon and 2:30 p.m. Pre-registration for a timeslot is highly recommended. People are reminded to arrive at the event before 2:00 p.m. to allow plenty of time to make their way around the event.
