Have you ever wanted to work for the provincial government?

Worklink-organized forum in Colwood to provide information to job seekers

An upcoming forum organized by Worklink aims to give prospective workers a better idea what the provincial government is looking for in new employees.

Brigitte Lane, with the hiring services department of the B.C. Public Service Agency, will be on hand to guide attendees through completing profiles online, as well as advising about the preferred style of resumes, interview preparation and references among other factors in the hiring process.

With applications for the B.C. Public Service beginning online, Lane will cover the important application requirements and more.

The provincial government has more than 28,000 employees throughout British Columbia and was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2016.

The forum takes place at the Colwood Pacific Activity Centre, 2610 Rosebank Rd., on Tuesday, July 19. Registration is free, for more information contact Barb McLean at bmclean@worklink.bc.ca.
