Welcome to our new EPIC (Exploring Possible Industries and Careers) Day Event!
View videos from our 2017 event below
Wednesday, February 8, 2017 - Exhibition Park
For the past 5 years, students have enjoyed the opportunity to explore careers in trades and technologies at YETT.
Also, for the past 2 years, they have experienced the same thing in the health care industry at the Health Careers Expo.
Both options gave students the opportunity to further explore career options in their respective sector.
2017 is seeing the addition of another career sector - Agriculture!
The entire event has been rebranded and is now an EPIC Day!
What students can expect from the day:
- Students will be registered in one of three sectors - Agriculture, Health or Trades
- They will meet hosts working in that specific industry during the morning - students can start their own network of contacts.
- They will participate in interactive displays - rather than just talking to hosts, students will get to experience a small part of the job and gain a greater insight into what the occupation involves.
- They will learn what it takes to work in that specific industry, including the highlights/lowlights of the job.
- After lunch, students will have an opportunity to explore the other two sectors, or return to hosts they might have missed in their sector earlier in the day.
