Young people considering what skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations will have an opportunity for interactive, hands-on experience at WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour stop in Dawson Creek, as part of the summer Dawson Creek Exhibition and Stampede.
Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can find out about careers in demand throughout the province, learn about online resources to help them find work and even try some of the skills they will need for different careers. Attendees, especially youth who are just beginning to think about potential careers, will be connected with WorkBC’s labour-market information, tools and services. Parents, teachers and career counsellors may also benefit from the event as they look for ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.
Members of the community are invited to participate in the event which will run Aug. 6-9 from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at no cost.
Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce B.C.’s growing economy needs. It is also an integral part of seven Regional LNG Energy Seminars currently taking place throughout B.C. More than 35,000 students have taken part in the tour so far, most recently in Quesnel and Castlegar.
Mike Bernier, MLA for Peace River South and Minister of Education ─
“Our government is committed to preparing a skilled workforce that our growing economy needs. The Find Your Fit tour stop in Dawson Creek is a great chance for young people in the South Peace to get a hands-on feel for several potential career paths.”
