WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour coming to Port McNeill

Students can particpate in hands-on career related activities

The Find Your Fit tour stop in Port McNeill 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 in Port McNeill at North Island Secondary school on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018. It will be open to the public from 3:45 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Our government is working to ensure students and parents have the information they need to make decisions about education and training in B.C.,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “Find Your Fit gives students in Port McNeill an insider’s view of careers that will help them build a bright future for themselves, and strong B.C. communities.”

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 tour stop in Port McNeill 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 latest data shows that there are more than 130,000 job opportunities opening throughout our region,” said Claire Trevena, MLA for North Island. “The Find Your Fit tour stop in Port McNeill allows students and parents to learn about these careers and the education they will need to enter those fields.”

The Find Your Fit tour 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 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.
