The five careers highlighted in the booklet include electricians, truck drivers, power engineers, and oil and gas labours/operators, according to client service manger with Employment Connections Jeannette Karasiuk.
“As well, there’s a section in the booklet on Site C and what are the occupations and demands they will have, and LNG,” says Karasiuk.
All of these career paths have been specifically chosen as a result of research they’ve conducted that identifies exiting training issues and potential gaps in the Peace region workforce, according to Employment Connections.
“We’ve forecasted and we’ve looked at all of the areas, like where do you go to school for training, what are the tickets, what are the requirements, what are the prerequisites?” Karasiuk goes on to explain. “It’s kind of a one-stop-tool to help people in one of those five occupations.”
