Entering the job market
In Secondary 4 and Secondary 5, many young people have begun to search for employment and some already have their first summer job or part-time job.
It’s an excellent way to learn and understand how the job market works (organization, employment sectors, etc.).
It is not recommended to do so, however, to the detriment of their studies. Only a few hours of work each week can suffice for a young person to earn some pocket money and more importantly, become responsible and discover their interests in connection with the job market.
Help for youth
When it comes to searching for work, some employment agencies like the Carrefours jeunesse-emploi, offer free assistance for those who want to create a curriculum vitae and begin their job search.
