Although more summer jobs are available this year compared to last, students will still have a difficult time finding work.
Both the on-campus Career Services and the Calgary Youth Employment Centre have seen some recovery in their job postings, but are not reaching the same numbers they used to. The types of jobs posted are also different.
"The jobs are picking up slowly this year," said Martina Payette, Career Services director. "A lot of the jobs we are getting are in the not-for-profit sector."
