Are you looking for a way to learn new skills but just don’t have the money to make it all happen? The Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia have teamed up to provide the Employment Skills Access program. It provides tuition free training for low skilled individuals living in BC. Those that complete the program earn certificates and credentials in different career fields. The ESA program is offered at 17 post secondary institutions across the province. There are some eligibility requirements that you have to meet in order to qualify for the program. All the details can be found on the WorkBC website: http://www.workbc.ca/Blog/ViewBlogPost.aspx?blogEntryId=130.
Do you have a love for BC forests, a passion for our beautiful lakes and rivers, and a desire to protect it for the generations to come? If so, you might consider a career in environmental conservation. BC has one of the highest concentration of green jobs in Canada. Take a look at this infographic by Talent Egg that sheds some light on this growing industry and where you might fit in it. Click the image below to visit the infographic.
Ever wonder why some people seem to get ahead without working as hard as you? Ever heard the statement, “dress for the part you want”? Looking like you are successful is the first step to being successful. I always marvel at how a good makeover can change a person’s life. Whenever I watch a makeover show I get excited to see the transformation that happens inside a person’s heart and soul when they feel good about the way they look on the outside. A few years ago I won a makeover contest that included a trip to Toronto, $1200 shopping spree, day at the salon, and photo shoot in Canadian Living magazine. It started a whole new chapter for me. You can also start your own life transformation now. It doesn’t have to cost you a fortune, with a little research about the basic pieces you need to build a wardrobe you can find most of it on sale or at thrift shop for very reasonable prices. Visit this infographic to find out how to dress the part for success and build a work wardrobe that will change your life: http://dailyinfographic.com/work-wardrobe-infographic.
