Paid Work Opportunity | Ontario Universities Fair Recruiting

1429557224_job_openingsIt’s that time of year when we start to connect with prospective applicants for Fall 2017!  We are seeking Arts students to work as ambassadors at Ontario Universities’ Fair (OUF), which is being held on September 23th-25th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. 
For Ryerson University, the Fair represents one of the most important student recruitment events of the year. With the support of nearly 500 faculty, staff and current students, Ryerson’s presence at the Fairtouches thousands of prospective students. The Faculty of Arts’ presence at OUF is always strong, and prospective applicants welcome the perspective that our current students give on the benefits of choosing Ryerson.

Arts students who volunteered for the 2016 Enrollment Workshops and Orientation are being given first priority to sign up for OUF.  This is a paid opportunity–with an hourly pay rate of $12.50.  To participate as an Arts student ambassador at OUF, you must attend a training session at one of the times found below. The training session is mandatory; if you cannot attend or do not show up for the training session, you cannot participate in OUF.
