The Find Your Fit event in Masset 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 Masset at Gudangaay Tlaats'gaa Naay Secondary on Thursday, March 15, 2018. It will be open to the public from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“In a province with over 900,000 career opportunities opening up over the next 10 years, choosing a career can be hard when you don’t have all the information,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “The Find Your Fit event in Masset helps people learn what careers will be in high demand and what skills and education you need to thrive and succeed.”
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 event in Masset 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.
“Helping our community thrive starts with helping people get the skills and training they need to be a part of a strong economy,” said Jennifer Rice, MLA for North Coast. “The Find Your Fit event in Masset brings, to our doorstep, all the tools and information you need to pick the career to build your future.”
The Find Your Fit event builds on the government’s commitment to provide British Columbians with the services they need by giving them the information to help them make decisions about education and training.
The Find Your Fit event and WorkBC.ca are first steps for all British Columbians on a journey to discovering information about a variety of exciting careers that will build a brighter future for individuals, families and communities, and help build a better B.C. for everyone.
