Young people of 100 Mile House will have an opportunity to learn the skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations.
WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour will be making its next stop at the Peter Skene Ogden Secondary school on Sept. 22, 2016.
Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can learn about British Columbia’s in-demand careers and test out some of the skills they would need for those occupations. Participants will also get to know career planning tools – such as Blueprint Builder and Career Trek videos – and the job resources and labour market information WorkBC.ca offers.
Parents, teachers and career counsellors may benefit, too – by discovering ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.
The Find Your Fit event will be open to the public from 3:15 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 150, 000 participants so far, most recently in Hagensborg.
Donna Barnett, MLA Cariboo – Chilcotin –
“Find Your Fit is a wonderful event which engages our youth with informative games that encourage learning and career planning. With this program, and the BC Jobs Plan, we are putting British Columbians first by ensuring they have the skills they need for the in-demand jobs of our growing economy.”
