Come out of hibernation – summer will be upon us before you know it, so now is a great time to start thinking about summer jobs!


Whether you’re currently in school or thinking about more education, consider doing practicums, internships, and co-op placements in the industry. Many tourism employers are willing to take on candidates without prior experience and train them on the job, and often have seasonal openings or are flexible with their scheduling to accommodate your other commitments. They usually start recruiting for summer positions starting in March too!


All experience is good experience, and these summer and seasonal jobs are great building blocks to honing your skills, enhancing your resume, and achieving your goals.
