T hree for the money Hot job markets to watch in Manitoba this month 1 Griffin Wheel Company

CN Rail recently signed a 10-year 500-million dollar contract with Am- stead Rail to build rail wheels at their Griffin Wheel Company plant. Definite opportunity here for those interested in transport or industry, with 170 workers already working at the Winnipeg plant. The plant is just a short trip down Day Street away from the Transcona Yards, as shipping by train continues to be a major part of life in Canada. 2 Volunteering

Did you know that 80 percent of the jobs in Manitoba are not advertised? So while you're toiling around online or scouring the newspaper classifieds for jobs, buddy is getting that dream job you never even knew about. How? By volunteering. Get- ting your foot in the door and networking is a terrific way to access the hidden job market and make yourself known.When employers see your ability and work ethic,

you'll be the one they call before they even consider putting an ad out.

3 SkipTheDishes Last but not least this month, restau-

rant food ordering and delivery service SkipTheDishes is hiring more than 500 workers to work in its Winnipeg head office, with positions including software developers, sales, operations and

other roles. The Manitoba government recently promised 5.5. million dollars over the next three years to help the company expand. SkipTheDishes cur- rently operates in nine Canadian cities.
