New Resource for Young Career Explorers
For many young people, planning and launching their careers can be intimidating. It can be challenging to know where to start, how to apply what they learned in school to the working world and who they can reach out to for help once they leave high school.
To help get young Albertans started, the Government of Alberta has launched MyWorkquest.alberta.ca,
A new youth career and employment portal. MyWorkQuest is designed to connect users to helpful information immediately. Visitors can browse questions asked by their peers, or ask their own.
You can download digital copies of resources from http://myworkquest.alberta.ca/about/promotion

Students can bookmark, like, and share the careers that interest them, while building a digital to-do list of resources to help plan life after high school.
