Young people of Burns Lake 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 Lake District Secondary school on Nov. 3, 2016.
Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can learn about B.C.’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 3:11 p.m. – 4 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 180, 000 participants so far, and was most recently in Houston.
John Rustad, MLA Nechako Lakes –
"With nearly 1 million job openings anticipated for B.C. by the year 2025, we will need a skilled and trained workforce ready to fill those in-demand jobs. Find Your Fit is a fun and educational way for our youth to discover the types of careers they would like to pursue, and it gives them the tools they need to start that journey.”
