Are you looking for up-to-date information on careers in the trades and technology sectors? Skilled Trades and Technology Week is November 1st to 7th and to raise awareness of the variety of opportunities in these fields the Career Centre is hosting a Trades and Technology workshop on Wednesday, November 3rd from 1 to 4pm.
The Work Futures occupational website for BC tells us that “employment prospects for electrical trades and telecommunications contractors and supervisors in BC are expected to be above average in upcoming years.” It is projected that over half of the openings will result from the need to replace those who retire.
The website also indicates that job prospects for workers in computer programming and engineering are expected to be above average in the short term. “The growing use of information technologies will drive the need for more workers in this profession, and demand for workers in this occupation is expected to steadily increase in the longer term. Job openings will also come from the need to replace those who retire.”
Would you be interested in speaking to educational advisors about training opportunities in those industries? Mark the date for this free event on your calendars. We will also have a representative from a skilled trades employment program, who will share current information on occupations and skills in demand, answer your questions about apprenticeships and much more. Other speakers are people who are currently working locally in the technology sector, including a web developer.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity. For more information and to register, call us at (250) 248-3205.
