If you're job hunting right now, your timing couldn't be any better. According to data published by Indeed.com, summer job postings in Canada are up by 15 percent over this time last year.
But, you better go full speed ahead with your search, because there's also a huge spike in applicants to compete against. Many of the jobs that are going up right now are seasonal, or temporary for the summer months. They're geared specifically towards college and university students on their summer break.
If you live in a small town, or if you're back home in your small town for the summer, you may actually be in luck. Many of the in-demand seasonal jobs on Indeed right now are based in rural areas.
According to one job expert, rural areas up north have a really short time window for performing their seasonal work because of their long winters. Weather-dependent industries like landscaping or construction are exploding with work opportunities now that the season is picking up.

- Student Assistant
- Customer Service Representative
