Summer jobs matter more than you might think. If you are a student looking for summer work, consider looking for a position that is in line with your career goals.

Resist the urge to get any type of job – your summer employment now will influence the type of job you will get in the future.

There are several Employment Ontario programs available through the Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre designed to assist youth in obtaining employment.

Gain a guaranteed interview for paid employment within 4 weeks and get paid while you learn employment techniques that work.

Connect with a group of peers in a safe and inclusive environment and access mentorship, support, education, skills and employment.

Find out which youth program is right for you. Employment Counsellors are available to help. Connect with us for more information.

Did you know that 97% of youth get an interview within one month of joining our youth programs?

Job Search Tip

Go through your social media accounts and clean up your profiles. Put yourself in the shoes of an employer. Remove anything that you feel may send the wrong message.

If you have posted or been tagged in social media posts that are inappropriate or distasteful, remove the post or untag yourself.

Always think twice before you share anything on-line!
