Rhiannon’s Job Picks

  1. Veterinary Technician Assistant at Fort Erie SPCA: This job most certainly is not for me because I would leave each shift with at least one new pet, but if you love animals and also have self-control, this would be an amazing opportunity!
  2. Breakfast Host at Holiday Inn Express & Suites: A brand new hotel opening in Welland, this job provides the opportunity to give visitors to our beautiful Rose City a wonderful first impression of not only a new business, but of each day in Welland as you greet them for breakfast. This is also a unique experience to be one of the original team members of a new opening.
  3. Pizza Cook/Kitchen Helper at Angelina’s Pizzeria: I think we’re beginning to see a trend here that I always include a pizzeria position in my job picks, but how could I not bring up pizza?! This full-time position allows you to create one of the most delicious foods ever created in a locally-owned pizzeria. #supportlocal
  4. Bartender at Big Texas Niagara: A taste of the lonestar state right here in Niagara! Serve up some delicious drinks to customers while embracing the southern country vibe. Perfect for the country lovers of Niagara!
  5. General Labourer/Grass Maintenance at Holy Cross Cemetery: For the lovers of all things spooky (like me): working outdoors is definitely a selling point on my list, and this position allows you to keep the landscape beautiful for family members visiting their loved ones, while also giving those spooky vibes for the Halloween lovers.

Work-Life Balance

July 8th, 2021|

Working on keeping a balance between work and leisure is very important in order to ensure you are not overworking or underworking. The line is thin and does not look the same for everyone.

Lemons to Lemonade

June 30th, 2021|

Working from home seemed like the ultimate dream to me for many reasons such as, not having to commute in the morning which saves on gas money, dressing more on the casual side, and not being able to forget anything at home, to name a few.
