Retail Insider has partnered with the City of Toronto to host its September 2021 online Retail Job Fair. Retailers interested in participating can contact Veronica (Roni) Simic at veronica.simic@toronto.ca

Interested retailers are encouraged to contact Veronica asap given the relatively short timelines. 

The online Retail Job Fair takes place from 9:00am-4:00pm on Thursday, September 30. Past events have been successful, including 2020-21 Retail Job Fairs where over 1,500 youth attended virtually due to the pandemic. The City of Toronto has hosted in-person Retail Job Fairs since 2004 with over 15,000 job seekers in attendance, over 200 retail employers participating and over 8,000 job seekers hired for various positions. 

The Retail Job Fair is a unique customized job fair model exclusively supporting youth 16-29 years old in Toronto. These young and ambitious job seekers are identified as job ready and interested in not only working in the retail sector but also creating a career in retail. The Retail Job Fair provides the opportunity for youth to engage directly with employers who are recruiting for a variety of positions.

In preparation for attending the Retail Job Fair, job seekers have received support from various City of Toronto youth employment programs including Toronto Youth Partnerships and Employment (TYPE), Toronto Employment & Social Services (TESS), and Youth Employment Partnerships (YEP) network agencies. These teams work closely with youth prior to the Retail Job Fair to ensure they are coached and prepared and have any necessary supports they require, such as child care, resumes and financial support so they can attend interviews and start a career in retail. 

For retailers looking to be part of the City of Toronto Job Fair later this month, contact: Veronica (Roni) Simic at veronica.simic@toronto.ca
