Currently the chances of qualified Specialized Cleaners finding employment are considered to be limited in the local area.
Job opportunities in this occupation are mostly found in these industries: 1) retail trade; 2) transportation and warehousing; and 3) other services. The main reason employment prospects are considered limited for this occupation is that there are few vacancies posted in the local newspapers and on job search sites in the Edmundston-Woodstock region. However, employment opportunities seem more interesting for individuals who work as automotive detailing specialists, where a certain number of vacant positions have been posted in the past few years. Salaries and benefits are usually low, often resulting in high employee turnover.
