Help with hiring
How Employment and Social Services can help with hiring
Employment and Social Services works with employers to bring together qualified candidates and employment opportunities. Our services, at no cost to employers, include:
- access to a large group of candidates with a wide range of skills and experience
- free pre-screening services, and
- ongoing human resources support and recruitment services
||You can call the Employer Hotline (416-397-JOBS) or email us to post a job, attend a job fair or get information on other ways to meet your training and hiring needs.
In addition to the following recruitment services, you can read about specific Employment and Social Services employment initiatives which are designed to meet the ongoing needs of employers and job seekers at: ESS in Action.
Hiring through job fairs
Job fairs provide opportunities for employers and job seekers to network and discuss job openings and skills.
Employment and Social Services also hosts career fairs geared towards specific industries such as trades and construction, retail and transport/logistics.
Employers that have participated in previous job fairs have left very satisfied with the results. In the words of one employer:
"Generally when we attend a career fair, if we leave with one potential candidate, it is considered a successful event. We left with 16 potential candidates and hired four. Your results speak for themselves!"
If you are interested in getting involved with a local job fair, contact the Community and Labour Market Manager at an Employment and Social Services office.

Hiring through customized training projects
