People first’ organization lets you really make a difference Work-life balance and ability to have a positive impact create a winning career combination Ira Kibbe was studying criminal justice in Abbotsford when a practicum took him to a local penitentiary. The experience would lead him down a career path that would change his life and that of many inmates he’s overseen in the decade since. “It just opened my eyes to what a corrections career could be and the opportunities it presented,” Kibbe says. Joining the BC Corrections team in 2009 as a Correctional Officer, Kibbe set his sights on the Fraser Regional Correctional Centre for a couple of reasons.

“You’re actually teaching them, coaching them and helping them reintegrate into society. You can really make a difference,” says Kibbe, today a Correctional Supervisor of Operations at the Fraser Regional Correctional Centre. And that points to the value BC Corrections sees in its officers. “I have always said that our staff are our greatest asset,” says Stephanie Macpherson, Provincial Director, BC Corrections. “We are a ‘people first’ organization – which

First, BC Corrections’ flexible work schedule gives him ample time to spend with family and friends in Maple Ridge, where the location of the correctional centre provides easy access to both city amenities and ample outdoor recreation opportunities.

their needs and able to excel in pursuing its mission of public safety.” Numerous career opportunities Early in his career, Kibbe enjoyed a position with the correctional centre’s Right Living Community, where carefully selected inmates live in a setting more akin to a halfway house and founded on the idea of discussion between officers and inmates, rather than enforcement. “Right away I noticed that when you remove those barriers, people open up. There were a few guys who really took our discussions to heart, which opened them up to accepting help and being willing to change their behavior. This approach greatly improves the inmate experience during their time in custody and creates a safer, more respectful environment for everyone.” That early experience led Kibbe to wanting to work with inmates with mental health needs, with a focus on working with them to develop a release plan that would help them succeed when they were released. “I kind of fell in love with the work – it was challenging and rewarding and it was where you could make a huge impact on someone’s life.”

Second, he liked that it was a sentencing facility – rather than inmates being remanded while awaiting trial or sentencing, they were there to do their allotted time, meaning more opportunity to help them along a better path.

Kibbe’s experience points to the opportunities open to BC Corrections’ officers.

Kibbe recalls one young inmate who had a long history of unhealthy and broken relationships. As a role model, Kibbe fostered a positive and respectful relationship with the young man. After working extensively with him, he saw significant growth that helped break the cycle and prevent him from returning to prison upon his release.

means we are always thinking of the people when we make decisions and develop our principles, values and goals. People matter, whether it’s the inmate in our custody or our staff who want to help to support that person who wants to turn their life around. We are focused on investing in our staff to ensure our organization is agile, responsive to

POLICE FOUNDATIONS Law enforcement & Security play an ever increasing role in the safety of today’s society Develop the hands on skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable you to work at various levels of policing, public safety, security, by-law enforcement and related justice professions.

Apply today!

Fraser Regional Correctional Centre has three levels of custody, so some inmates are engaged in work in the community, including mowing lawns at the cemetery and running the local fish hatchery, while others work within the facility itself. There, staff are engaged to teach everything from apprenticeship accredited welding to various levels of carpentry, in addition to many more roles. “The variety of different things you can do is massive, especially if you’re motivated to do something new,” Kibbe says. “You get the satisfaction of actually changing someone’s life and it gives you the opportunity to give back to the community.”

Despite a diminishing supply of skilled trades workers, fewer young people than ever are pursuing these occupations in Canada. There remains a stigma around so-called blue-collar jobs, and young people are frequently unaware that professions in the trades can in fact be highly lucrative and rewarding. Skilled workers are in demand, and unlike many other types of employment, these jobs cannot be sent offshore. While no sector is impervious to economic downswings, many trade workers enjoy job security even during periods of great turmoil. UNIVERSITY VS. TRADE SCHOOL A streamlined path into a trade often involves completing a vocational program at a trade school. Unlike university programs, which require all students to take a variety of complementary (and often unrelated) classes, vocational programs

focus entirely on preparing pupils for the reality of their chosen professions. In comparison to the four years it takes to complete an undergraduate degree, trade programs can either be two-year associates degrees or even shorter certificate programs. This means trade school students can enter the workforce well ahead of their university-educated peers, and are also far more likely to find employment in a position related to their studies. A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR SKILLED TRADES WORKERS With an anticipated shortage of skilled workers looming on the horizon, young people who are proactive today have an excellent chance at finding themselves in high-earning, secure positions tomorrow. And thanks to government funding and incentives like the Apprentice Incentive Grant (AIG) and the Apprenticeship Completion Grant (ACG) — which can cover up to $4,000 for tuition, books, travel and tools — trade schools are now as affordable as they are practical.

FIRST JOB OR NEW CAREER

Five Ways to Acquire Useful Experience First-time applicants, recent graduates entering the workforce, and people changing careers often face the same dilemma: they don’t get hired because they lack experience, and they can’t acquire experience because no one will hire them. While frustrating, there are ways to avoid this paradox and gain useful, relevant experience to land that new job. 1. Co-op programs. Many programs offer students the opportunity to alternate bet ween work and study terms. Work is related to your field of study and consists of several paid or unpaid internships. These allow you to acquire experience and to develop contacts in your field. 2. Student jobs. While at school, try to get a job that develops pertinent skills that will be useful when pursuing your future career. For example, if you plan on working with children, choose a job as a camp counsellor instead of delivering pizzas. 3. Internships. Work internships are practical for both students and people looking to change careers. They allow you to put your skills and knowledge into practice, acquire experience and connect with individuals and businesses in your field. 4. Volunteering. Volunteering your time at a company in your fi eld or sector is a great way to acquire experience and expand your network of connections.

5. Temporary employment. Working at firms who hire additional staff during peak periods is another excellent way to gain experience. Lastly, don’t overlook the many opportunities found on the hidden job market. A significant amount of openings are filled without ever being posted or advertised. That’s why it’s important to turn to your network of friends, family members and even old classmates when looking for employment. Often times, you’ll discover that landing that first job comes down to who you know and not what you know.

We’re hiring. Join our team! There’s never been a better time to join Canada Post. We’re hiring for a wide range of positions, and have opportunities available in a number of areas, including:

• Management • Operations Supervisors • Delivery Agents • Letter Carriers • Postmasters • Post Office Assistants

CHILDREN’S

FOUNDATION

Preparing for your future career can start sooner than you think. If you’re a student looking for a part-time or summer job, consider choosing a type of employment that matches your future goals and aspirations. By doing so, you’ll get a head start on developing useful skills and experience that will be in valuable further down the road. It’s important to remember that almost all jobs provide worthwhile experience. Regardless of the type of work you’re doing, you’ll most likely develop your interpersonal, problemsolving and organizational skills. So, even if your work has no relation to your studies, you’ll still be gaining valuable experience.

Please email your resume and cover letter to hr@blackpress.ca.

THE

Plan Ahead When Choosing a Student Job

Hollyburn Family Services has been providing quality residential programs, counselling, and support services to children, youth, seniors and families since 1990. We are committed to clientcentred service, high standards of care and strong staff culture.

Don’t forget that most people usually start a new job at the bottom and work their way up. For example, if you want to be a cook, try and find a job as an assistant cook. This will provide you with relevant work experience.

What’s more, you’ll be demonstrating a serious interest in the profession as well as developing contacts within the industry. However, don’t make the mistake of taking a position you hate simply because it relates to your field of study: enjoying what you do is an important aspect of any job. Lastly, be mindful that your work shouldn’t interfere with your studies. Make sure your schedule allows you the necessary time to do your homework and to prepare for exams.
