Below, our headhunters in Toronto have curated the following list of the top industries hiring right now:
No one should be surprised to see tech on this list. There are a lot of tech companies in Toronto that are hiring, including Google, Meta, Uber, and Microsoft. Each year, the industry continues to grow, evolve and innovate, leading to new career paths.
Piggybacking off tech, fintech continues to play a more significant role in banking, insurance, and investment. Financial services companies are expanding their capabilities to make it easier for people to make financial transactions using technology. Companies need people to support the technology and provide customer support to the end user.
The past couple of years has shown us just how important the supply chain is in society. Society’s greater reliance on e-commerce and having goods shipped to their door has supply chain and transportation companies growing at a rapid pace. There are many opportunities from entry-level to the executive branch.
If you have skills applicable to the industries above, you are well positioned to interview for jobs with the leading companies in these spaces.
