TRAIL – The Find Your Fit tour stop in Trail 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 Warfield at James L. Webster Elementary school on Monday, Jan. 22, and open to the public from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“B.C.’s innovative economy needs everything from nurses, to welders, to accountants,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “Students and parents in Trail can go to the Find Your Fit tour stop to experience some of these careers first hand, and see what education and training they need to build their future.”
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.
