4 Toronto Startups That Want to Hire You

Posted by PanamericanWorld on November 03, 2015

There was a time when young people from all across Canada had big dreams of moving to Toronto to make their mark in the world. Over time, jobs became more and more scarce, and the cost of living became too high for a lot of young people to even think about making this dream move. Now, the tides are changing again, but the jobs aren’t what they used to be. Instead of ending up in a dead-end job, employees are in demand by the multitude of startups in the city. These startups are in need of good people, and they want to hire you.


If you love to write, Wattpad needs you. You can write and share your stores with anyone in the world. This is your platform to write anything you want, and anyone who uses the site and is interested in what you have written can read it. Basically, readers and writers will be connected. You get a chance to find your creative voice, and see your work actually published. Some pieces have been read over a million times, so you have a pretty good chance of being noticed if you are writing what people want to read about. You can write from anywhere, so you don’t even have to get dressed and commute to work every day.


Shopify is a Toronto startup lets you sell your items for cash. You don’t even have to bother doing any of the technical stuff. Even better, you don’t have to spend a fortune to hire a developer to create a sales site for you. All you have to do is create your own website (which is super-easy to do), and everything you earn, you keep. It costs you nothing, and you keep all of your profits. It doesn’t get much better than that. Even some big brands use the platform.

This is a company that is used by more than 500 learning institutions all over the world, and one that you can get in on the ground floor, whether you are a student or a teacher.
