The Find Your Fit tour stop in Campbell River is a great opportunity for students to get valuable hands-on experience with helpful career-planning tools.
WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour will be in Campbell River at Robron Centre on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018. It will be open to the public from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“We expect more than 900,000 job openings throughout B.C. over the next 10 years, and are working to connect British Columbians with the education and training they need to take advantage of these opportunities,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “I encourage everyone to visit the Find Your Fit tour in Campbell River, explore new possibilities and start planning the educational journey that could lead to a new career.”
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.
Industries such as tourism, tech and health care will need a broad range of skilled British Columbians. The Find Your Fit tour stop in Campbell River is a unique opportunity to get insight into in-demand careers from a diverse range of industries that are important to building a strong, sustainable and innovative 21st-century economy that works for everyone.
