‘Find Your Fit’ event helps students plan their careers

Hands-on experience allows students to find the career that’s right for them.

WorkBC’s “Find Your Fit” event will be at Kamloops South Secondary on Monday, March 12, 2018.

The event will be open to the public from 3:30 to 7 p.m., and is a great opportunity for students to get valuable hands-on experience with helpful career-planning tools.

“Our government is working to ensure students and parents know about emerging career opportunities throughout British Columbia,” says Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “The Find Your Fit event in Kamloops gives everyone the opportunity to explore careers and plan for the post-secondary education they need to reach their full potential.”

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 or discover 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 Kamloops 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.

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 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.
