Students learn about careers at Find Your Fit

Students learn what skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations

Clearwater's Tommy Panko checks out one of several registration kiosks with Kelsey Forsyth of WorkBC's Find Your Fit tour at Clearwater Secondary School on Tuesday

Young people of Clearwater and the surrounding area had an opportunity to learn what skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations when WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour stopped at Clearwater Secondary school on Nov. 22.

Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can learn about B.C.’s in-demand careers and test out some of the skills they would need for those occupations. Participants will also get to know career planning tools — such as Blueprint Builder and Career Trek videos — and the job resources and labour market information WorkBC.ca offers.

Parents, teachers and career counsellors may benefit, too — by discovering ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.

The Find Your Fit team presented to the students at CSS during the school day then opened the event to the public in the late afternoon and evening.

Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 180, 000 participants so far.

The tour came to Clearwater from Prince George and was on its way to 100 Mile House afterwards.
