The Find Your Fit tour stop in Gold 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 at Gold River Secondary on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018. It will be open to the public from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“With over 900,000 job openings forecasted across B.C. over the next 10 years, we need to train up our youth,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “I really encourage students in Gold River to come out to the Find Your Fit tour, find a career that is the right fit and plan for the education that will help them be successful.”
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.
