Folks We Care About: Lindsay Hong

Participating in the 10th Annual MEGA Job Fair & Business with Ease…

The City of Surrey hosted the 10th Annual MEGA Job Fair on August 3rd,
2017! With a stack of resumes in hand, Lindsay Hong tackled the many
job opportunities and exhibitors with excitement. Karen Lai, the
employment connector for Spectrum Society for Community Living
accompanied Lindsay to the job fair as she chose which employer to talk to.


The employers which were represented were Best Buy, IKEA, PARQ
Vancouver, City of Surrey Parks and Recreation, London Drugs, or Lush
Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. Quite often, Lindsay would suggest which
employers she wanted to visit, drop her resume off, and then complete
the application either online or manually. She frequently shared that “this is fun” over the course of 2 hours that we were there.


Following this, Lindsay and Karen met to further follow up with other
job opportunities that she came across during the fair. We discussed
the various companies and the positions, as well as debriefing from the
experience. Being at the job fair gave Lindsay the experience of
meeting employers, get excited about the countless of job openings,
and completing applications. She was quite clear on what kind of job
she wanted.
She had a lot of fun going from employer to employer!! Clearly, searching for employment can be fun…
