The Summer Camp Job Fair season is just around the corner – what’re they like?
The events are a great place to land the summer job of your dreams!
In today’s Guest Blog post, Shannon talks us through her experience at a Summer Camp Job Fair.
I honestly had the most amazing summer working at Camp Iroquois Springs.
I was a specialist Horseback Riding Camp Counsellor and I got placed at one of the Job Fairs.
Over the summer, I met the most amazing people, learned a lot about myself, and most importantly, had a blast.
Looking back, I wouldn’t have had the best summer of my life if I didn’t go to the Job Fair.
The fair itself was an amazing experience, and I would honestly 100% recommend attending.
There were lots of questions running through my mind when I arrived at the event, but it was amazing.
I’d done lots of preparation and that would be the main advice I’d give.
I made sure I’d completed as much of my Summer Camp profile as I could so it’d give a good impression.
I remember how nervous I felt when I walked into the event, but I calmed down pretty quickly.
The USA Summer Camp team were on hand all day. Their positivity, happiness, and smiles settled me down.
Their support throughout the day was amazing. After getting placed they were so genuinely ecstatic for me!
The hall was set out so you could find out more about the camp and then get an interview with them.
Before I had my interview, I looked at Iroquois Springs and the list of jobs they were looking to hire for.
My heart sank again as horseback riding wasn’t on that list, and I was very nearly ready to give up.
However, the staff saw my profile and noticed how much experience I had in horseback riding.
After some whispering to their boss, they fast-tracked me to the front of the queue for an interview.
Nerves kicked in when I sat down to start the interview, but after starting, they all melted away.
Getting placed at the Summer Camp Job Fair was honestly was one of the best feelings of my entire life.
I had the biggest smile on my face for weeks afterward, and being able to tell all my friends was good.
People don’t understand why I’m so enthusiastic about the fairs, but I can’t stress enough how important they are.
I had the best summer of my life because I attended a Job Fair – and you can too!
