Career fair offers job options for the future

Students, parents and community members are invited to the Career Exploration Night at EMCS

Students, parents and community members are invited to the Career Exploration Night event at the Edward Milne Community School for a presentation on a wide range of available careers.

The event is April 7, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the EMCS commons area.

Attendees will have the opportunity to talk with more than 20 exhibitors, ranging from education institutions, local businesses, and volunteer options.

This also includes travel opportunities for students through programs such as Latitude Canada, an organization that specializes in providing volunteer opportunities around the world for youth.

Kick-starting the night at 7 p.m. will be brief presentations from guest speakers in the school theatre, from Vancouver Island Health Authority , the Canadian College of Performing Arts, the Aveda Institute and Sooke Fitness.

Other career paths and topics being represented that night are the inclusion of women in trades, optometry, paramedics, the tourism industry, trades, recreation, aeronautics, beauty aesthetics, the Canadian Armed Forces, veterinary services and fire and rescue services.

And it’s not only for students, either.

“It would be a welcome opportunity for anyone interested in a career change,” Percival said, adding that this event is all about providing a clear view in how someone can reach the career they want.

“There are many roads to the same location, so [the career fair] would provide insight into how that person reached that career and that position.”
