Young people of Burnaby 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 Byrne Creek Community School, 7777 18 St., on Dec. 6, 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 3:30 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 180,000 participants so far, most recently in Kamloops.
Richard T. Lee, MLA Burnaby North –
“Find Your Fit is a fantastic way for our youth to learn about the in-demand jobs of the future. The hands on program will help guide them towards the education and skill training they’ll need for the anticipated nearly one million job openings by 2025.”
