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 Parkland Middle School on Feb. 9, 2016.
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 3:15 p.m. – 7 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. More than 68,000 students have taken part in the tour so far, most recently in Vancouver and Burnaby.
Bill Bennett, MLA for Kootenay East, Minister of Energy and Mines and Responsible for Core Review –
“This interactive event is a great opportunity for those in high school or who are about to enter the workforce to learn about careers that might be of interest. I encourage the region’s students and young adults to visit the Find Your Fit tour stop and see what occupations are in demand here in the Kootenays and throughout British Columbia.”
