 Reminder: Holiday Job Tree


Here is your chance to make some quick cash this holiday season. As part of it’s annual Holiday Job Tree campaign, YES Montreal is helping young job seekers earn extra cash for the holidays. In addition, YES offers clients free computer access, counselling services and tips on how to land these holiday jobs. It all starts with a trip to the Holiday Job Tree. YES’ elves have been hard at work and have collected over 300 job postings from local employers seeking extra staff to work over the busy holiday season. For those not interested in working in retail positions, the Job Tree is also decorated with some customer service positions. If you would like more information, please call (514) 878-9788 or e-mail at
