T hree for the money Hot job markets to watch in Manitoba this month 1 Home and Garden Sure, there's snow everywhere

and winter si in full swing, but home and garden centres are already look- ing at hiring for spring, which si their biggest and busiest season. You can also consider applying for fertilizing and lawn mowing jobs. Because

under all that white stuff is a garden waiting to be planted.

Brace yourselves: spring is coming. 2 Health Care

One thing that will never decrease in demand is healthcare, especially with

the baby boomers reaching retirement age. There are many places actively

looking for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, home health aids, electronic records

specialists, technicians and more, all of which come wth a variety of education and experience requirements.

3 Tax Preparation

The dreaded 'T' word (Taxes) is a source fo dread for many, but can be

a source of employment for you. Many of the tax preparation companies out there hire staff at this time in order

to be ready for when tax season hits full swing and it's all hands on deck

to make sure everybody's returns get filed. Temp jobs can easily become full-time with good work.
