T hree for the money Hot job markets to watch in Manitoba this month 1 Canada Goose

If you like sewing, and actually passed your textiles class back in

home economics, then you could be one of 300 new employees to work for Canada Goose. The company has goals of doubling its staff of 500 within the next year or so, as

the makers of some of the warmest winter coats you’ll encounter try to keep up with demand. 2 Canadian Armed Forces

Whether it’s a full-time or part-time role, the Forces are looking for people

right now. If you want to join part time as a member of the Reserves, now is a good time to start as the process can take over 6 months, which would get you started for the 2016-2017 training

year. The editor personally recommends the job of logistics officer.

3 Randstad Canada One of Canada’s top staffing companies is a good place to start

when looking for work, as they seek a number of people for skilled positions. Applying to companies like this can make the process easier for both the

employer and potential employees, as you apply once and it can go towards numerous potential jobs.
