Ever wondered what it takes to be a Midwife in Alberta? How about a Lawyer? Or even an Environmental Engineer? This winter, Lindisfarne Productions worked with Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) to find out just what it takes to pursue each of these occupations and more, creating a series of occupational profile videos.
Each of the occupational profiles created for the ALIS website will help Albertans young and old who are looking to explore their prospects as they leave high school, explore new career options, or as they newly arrive to the province.
We had the opportunity to follow Carly Beaulieu, a practicing Midwife, as she detailed the many different aspects of her job, from administration to communication, from prenatal to postnatal care, and of course the joy of being a witness to the “miracle of childbirth.” What better way to spend the day than with cuddly babies?
Colleen Mahon, a Community Disability Services Practitioner, walked us through her typical day helping individuals with disabilities “in achieving their goals and dreams so that they can be participating members of our community.” While noting that it takes lots of patience, energy, creativity and flexibility with varied hours, Colleen shares how rewarding it is to “watch people achieve their goals… shine and feel good about what they’ve learned.” It was great to see the smiles Colleen is able to garner from the individuals she works with.
It’s always fun for our Lindisfarne crew to get out and create these occupational profile videos for the Government of Alberta. We learn so much about the varied and unique career opportunities in the province and we get to meet some amazing, passionate people!
