A large portion of the public service has been working from home for over a year now. Meanwhile, new recruits have joined the ranks, working virtually and with little interaction beyond their immediate teams, supervisors and managers. Many public servants are beginning to wonder how they can continue to build their careers and be noticed for opportunities in the current work environment.
During National Public Service Week, the British Columbia Federal Council is collaborating with the Canada School of Public Service for a one-hour Ask Me Anything event about career development and skill building in the federal public service. Join in to submit your questions using the live chat function and learn which skills are in high demand, and how you can acquire them.
