The Find Your Fit event in Mt. Currie is a great opportunity for students to get valuable hands-on experience with helpful career-planning tools.
WorkBC’s Find Your Fit event will be in Mt. Currie at the 2018 SASET Career and Job Fair on Thursday, March 1, 2018. It will be open to the public from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
“With more than 900,000 job opportunities opening up over the next 10 years, now is a great time for students to explore careers that may be the right fit for them,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “By stopping in at the Mt. Currie Find Your Fit event, students can take advantage of the chance to get hands-on experience and start career planning.”
Students can visit up to 16 career-activity stations where they can take part in hands-on, career-related activities like creating digital graphics, completing an electrical circuit and taking someone’s blood pressure. These activities will help students uncover their strengths and interests, giving them the knowledge they need to get started with their career planning. They can then move on to a labour market information station, where they can dig deeper into a career of their choice.
