he Find Your Fit tour stop in Agassiz 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 Agassiz Elementary-Secondary school on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, and open to the public from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“It can be intimidating for students and parents when trying to plan for an education and future career,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “The Find Your Fit tour gives students a taste of a number of rewarding careers that are needed on the coast and throughout our province. Attend the tour stop in Agassiz and find your future.”
Students can visit up to 16 career activity stations where they can take part in a hands-on activity related to a specific career, like 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 tour stop in Agassiz 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 tour builds on the government’s commitment to provide British Columbians with the services they need by providing them the information to help them make decisions about education and training.
The Find Your Fit tour 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.
