Bad Economy Draws Students to Humber’s Summer Job Fair
Ali Amad and Malcolm Campbell
The Humber College Summer Job Fair 2016 was held Thursday in the Learning Resource Commons (LRC) on North campus, attracting hundreds of students eager to get part-time jobs.
Organized by the Academic and Student Success Centre, the fair had company representatives offering a variety of fields and positions. The Canadian Revenue Agency and Best Buy Canada were the two highest profile employers in attendance.
Students’ need for employment is stronger than ever now. The plummeting Canadian economy is hemorrhaging jobs and our dollar is currently sitting at 73 cents U.S., up from a low of 69 cents earlier in the year.
