THE 14th annual Sunshine Coast Daily Careers Expo, incorporating the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland (CCIQ) Job Shop, returns next week to again provide much-needed information on employment, study and training opportunities for career seekers.
The expo provides a unique opportunity for anyone seeking further study, apprenticeship or traineeship opportunities, employment options and businesses looking for staff training options.
A record number of exhibitors will be on hand, enabling expo visitors to speak with more than 200 highly-qualified representatives from about 100 organisations, providing relevant and up-to-date knowledge in the education, training and employment sectors.
Exhibitors will include Queensland, interstate and international universities, as well as the defence forces, a diverse range of employers, job service agencies , private and further education providers, covering information technology, biotechnology, aviation, early childhood education, hotel management, health care, hairdressing, creative and performing arts, business education and more.
This year will see the launch of a “Try a Skill” zone - an interactive program that allows visitors to try various skills and trade areas.
This will include displays that are entertaining, informative and offer access to some of the basic skills involved with a range of fields.
The expo is a community-based event staged each year by tertiary and vocational course providers, employers and support agencies for the benefit of students, parents and career seekers of all ages.
Advice on how to apply for entry to courses, the costs involved, financial support options and qualifications required will also be available at the Expo through government organisations and other student support services.
In addition, the current economic climate is forcing the community to be aware of the importance of gaining new skills or upgrading their existing skills in the workplace. In response to these conditions, a large number of exhibitors will provide details on current career and employment options, trainee and apprenticeship programs or options for adults wanting to up-skill and retrain in the workplace.
As part of the Job Shop, hundreds of real jobs will be on offer, with jobseekers able to meet face-to-face with local and national employers.
Apprenticeship positions through to professional roles will be on offer and many positions will be based on the Sunshine Coast with local employers. Other organisations include national employers, Queensland State government departments and group training companies.
Career seekers can meet directly with potential employers and submit resumes for consideration. A diverse range of positions available will include full time, part time and casual. If you are currently searching for a job, there is sure to be a position that will interest you! A list of positions can be obtained from the Sunshine Coast Daily Careers Expo lift out feature to be published before the event or for more details please check the CCIQ Job Shop section of the website.
