If Work Placement looks like the way to achieve your goals, our Employment Services Centers are here to support you while you find your fit
Work Placement is a service that, if eligible, you can access through Personal Services & Supports at a Work BC Centre. It gives you the chance to gain great experience while you spend time working for a chosen employer and learn to take on the duties and tasks as other employees of the company are doing.
Very often, the information you gain and the abilities you learn in a work placement can be important to locating and preparing for your chosen career.
These are great opportunities to connect with people who are already doing the job and can help you get in the door. Their connection to the company and information can give you a real understanding of the ins and outs of the position.
Think of a work placement as a sample of what the job you are seeking may be like. You can decide what you like and don’t like about the position.
Look for a placement in the area of work you are considering as a career and in which you feel you will learn what you need to know to continue in that field.
Usually work placements are unpaid and therefore not extensive in length. However, at times, placements may be done through a program called Wage Subsidy, which pays both you and the employer as you learn.
