Talent MATCH

Supporting Museums, Arts, Tourism, Culture, and Hospitality Organizations

Talent MATCH was funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education & Skills Training in 2021 and 2022 and was a partnership between the Association for Co-operative Education & Work-Integrated Learning BC/Yukon (ACE-WIL), the BC Alliance for Arts + Culture, the BC Museums Association, and go2HR. It was focused on supporting museums, arts, tourism, culture, and hospitality (MATCH) organizations to hire students. Talent MATCH for Students was a companion program, which supported students looking to work in MATCH sectors.

Although the program has ended, this webpage and the resources here remain to support MATCH organizations considering hiring students. For additional support, contact your local post-secondary institution.

Has your organization considered hiring a student? Or are you a student looking to work in museums, arts, tourism, culture, or the hospitality sector? Talent MATCH is here to support you!

Student talent can bring fresh skills to your organization, help you pivot digitally, and increase capacity.
