LET'S TRY THIS AGAIN - CH Newsletter #27 June 9, 2022

As part of joining our private residential community, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events, developments in the student residence and any other relevant news. We've decided to post these updates on our website in order to let our visitors looking for student housing get an inside view of the Chelsea House student life!

Hello CH members,
First thing's first, let's talk about the last newsletter's little mishap 🙄 We got so excited about sharing our first newsletter in two weeks that we forgot to add a title (lol😅). It brought back flashbacks of forgetting to put our names on exams or assignments back in uni - IYKYK.

  • BONUS: CNN Travel named Montreal one of the 11 Top Destinations of Summer 2022 🌞 Good thing you live here now and not just visiting because it really is the place to be this summer (and it's not just us saying so)! 😆 From the street art to free shows, to the terraces and festivals, Montreal's summer gives you an endless stream of serotonin ☀️ (to make up for our dark winters 😅)

  • If you'd like a break from the hustle and bustle of downtown Montreal, we highly recommend heading to the suburbs for some plane spotting ✈️ Head over to Parc Jacques-de-Lesseps which is located right next to the Montreal airport. Grab some snacks, drinks, and something to sit on to soak in the sun and get an up-close view of planes landing and taking off. Insider tip: the vibes are IMMACULATE during golden hour ☀️

  •  We also wanted to give you all A heads about one of the biggest weekends in Montreal: GRAND PRIX starting June 17th! 🏎 This isn't just about a car racing on a track, It's about a whole city coming alive with excitement! People arrive to Montreal from every part of the globe with one common objective - to get the most out of their 72 hours
    Streets are closed, clubs and bars throw epic parties, celebrities are in's definitely a weekend to be out and about 🕺🏻

We wanted to give our Chelsea House Members a big good morning and came with fresh bagels from the one and only Fairmount Bagel.

For those of you who don't know what's good, here a lil insider on Fairmount Bagels:
Bagels were brought over to North America by Jewish immigrants from Poland 🇵🇱 and other eastern European countries 🇪🇺 in the 1900s. In 1919, Isadore Shlafman arrived in Canada and opened the first bagel bakery in Montreal, called Montreal Bagel Bakery, on Saint-Lawrence Boulevard (which used to called "The Main"). In 1949, Grandfather Isadore move from Saint-Lawrence Boulevard over to Fairmount street. Where they continued their traditions and opened up Fairmount Bagel Bakery! Now for those of you who have tried a New York 🗽 Bagel we can assure you Montreal ones are far more superior as each is not only hand made, but they are boiled in honey-water then thrown in a wood-fire burning oven, which gives the bagel its distinctive chewiness, golden colour and crust 🤤🥯
We wanted to make sure our Chelsea House members were able to experience a freshly baked Montreal bagel and brought some to Chelsea House on Friday morning (with some cheeky mimosas 😉)!

We thought it would be great to give you greater insight into the working world 💪 - for those who have never worked or who have never applied to any jobs. We live in a world where having previous experience is super helpful and can boost your career path no matter what you do!
4 tips on how to apply for a part-time job:
  1. CV/Resume - make sure to write your resume and have it printed before anything. Your CV should have a section for education, past professional experiences, achievements and awards and skills. We wanted to show you a template that would look great!
  2. Cover letter - writing a cover letter is optional but can boost your application. It is merely there for the boost and isn't always necessary.
  3. Searching - there are many ways you can look for a part-time job. Some of the easiest ways are through LinkedIn, indeed and on google. Some other ways if you are trying to find something more immediate would be going into the places and giving them your resume.
  4. Applying and getting your first interview - Don't stress, first interviews are supposed to be super draining! If you need any preparation on how to respond to certain questions we would be more than happy to help you with that.

Now put these tips into action:

  • Visual Support Associate @ Harry Rosen | If you believe in maintaining and supporting a team to achieve success, we believe this part-time job is for you!! You will only have to know luxury wear and retail experience. The perfect job for the CH fashionista 👔

  • Dog Walker/Cat Sitter @ Walks & Wags | Who else is missing their pets from home or would like an excuse to cuddle a puppy? Well, you're in luck. No more contemplating buying a pet you can just have one temporarily!!!🐶🥺

  • Volunteer for Friendly Visits with Seniors @ Entraide Bénévole Métro | If you're looking for something to do that would help the Montreal community, this is a great way to do so! You'd be helping with physical and moral support to seniors 💗 All they ask for is helping with groceries, going for walks, and checking up on isolated seniors (wholesome 🥺)

If ever you need some summer activity recommendations, you know who to call 👋🏼

Stay classy,

CH Community Team
