A job posting describes the type of work or tasks you will be doing if you get the job, and provides a list of skills and experience we are looking for when we read your application. It is a good idea to make your application match what we are looking for under responsibilities and qualifications. Make sure to tell us about any experience you have for each skill we have asked for. You can give us this information in either your resume or cover letter.
Be sure to apply before the job posting end date. Applications will not be accepted past this date.
More Job Application Tips are available and have information about how to format your resume and create a good cover letter.
We use an online application system for jobs. We no longer accept mailed, hand delivered or faxed resumes and cover letters. You must apply online.
We thank all those who apply, however, only applicants who have been selected for an interview will be contacted. It could take up to two months to hear from us, depending on the length of time the job is posted and how many applications we have to sort through.
If you do not get an interview and are interested in receiving feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each year, The City of Toronto begins recruiting for part-time summer jobs in December and Fall, Winter and Spring part-time jobs in June. Please look at the postings for specific dates.
Be sure to submit your application before 11:59 p.m. on the end date listed on the job posting. You can’t apply after the posting closes.
If you want to apply for more than one position you must submit separate online applications for each job you are interested in. Each application should have a resume that describes your skills and qualifications for the posting you are applying to.
When filling out the online application, there are a few questions to answer. This is called a pre-screening questionnaire. The pre-screening questionnaire helps us sort your application. Make sure to read your answers and confirm they are right before clicking “Confirm and Submit Application”. Once you have submitted the application, you can’t make changes to it.
After you have submitted your online application, you will receive a confirmation email to the email address you gave us. You can also log into your account and click on “Application Management”. Here you will be able to view what you have applied to and see if your resume was uploaded successfully.
Follow this list to make sure you complete all the steps required for applying to a Parks, Forestry and Recreation job competition.
If your application has shown us that you are a good match for the job, we will invite you to a virtual interview. It could be weeks between when you apply online and when you hear from us, so keep a copy of the job posting and the resume you submitted.
On the day of your scheduled interview, you will be contacted by an interview team, either by computer video conferencing or by telephone. Please make sure that you are prepared for their call 5 minutes before your interview time. We recommend that you are in a quiet place with limited distractions.

If you live outside of Toronto, you will need to ask for a Vulnerable Sector Check from your local Police Service. For more information about vulnerable sector screening, please contact your local Police Service.
