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 at Maple Ridge Secondary at Mount Crescent Gym, on Thursday and Friday, Jan. 7-8.
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. Find Your Fit connects participants with labour-market information resources including WorkBC.ca’s online tool, Blueprint Builder ─ workbc.ca/blueprintbuilder ─ that helps users map their career plan. 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.
The Find Your Fit booth will be open to the public from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 7 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. More than 68,000 students have taken part in the tour so far, most recently in Mission and Vancouver.
Dr. Doug Bing, MLA for Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows ─
“It is never too early for young people to pursue their interests and think about what they would do to achieve them. This program is a perfect place to start.”
