Students can experience hands-on some different career options and learn the path to get them there

Find your fit provincial program reaches Invermere Thursday, March 1st

Government program designed to ‘inspire future career choices’

The Find Your Fit event in Invermere 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 Invermere at David Thompson Secondary school on Thursday, March 1, 2018. It will be open to the public from 3:45 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Find Your Fit will help youth in Invermere to learn about what education and training they need to get them on their way to a successful future,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “These hands-on tools are essential for young people to figure out how they can fit into the larger career ecosystem.”

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 Invermere 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 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.
