Interested applicants can visit participating restaurants on 11 April to learn about local career opportunities, apply for available positions and possibly even get interviewed on the spot by a member of the restaurant management team.
Len Jillard, chief people officer, McDonald’s Canada, said: “At McDonald’s Canada, we want to give employees the skills needed to go from the crew room to the boardroom. National Hiring Day gives us the chance to show potential employees what makes McDonald’s a great place to work, for a year or a career.”
In 2011, approximately 42% of McDonald’s new hires were teens. Alan Kearns, founder of CareerJoy, Canada’s career and leadership coaching company, said: “Not enough job experience and too much advice can make the job search confusing and frustrating for teens and parents.
“When it comes to finding a job, it’s not one size fits all, but with a little helpful advice, teens and parents can find an opportunity that’s more suited to them.”
