Just the job for advice
FREE career advice and information for workers and students direct from employers and trainers is available at this year’s National Careers and Employment Expo.
It is Adelaide’s largest and longest-running careers and employment event.
Event spokesman Roy Wright says the expo differs from other events as it caters for allcomers – school and tertiary students, entry level or mature-age workers, people returning to the workforce or people just looking for a career change.
‘‘ We are the only comprehensive, all-in-one event in South Australia over 5000sq m,’’ Wright says.
This year, new and expanded interactive areas will give visitors the chance to get hands-on experience while seminar programs will talk indepth about career options.
Employers in key employment growth industries including energy, mining, construction, health and defence will be on hand at exhibits with oneon-one and first-hand information on various career paths and the qualifications needed to pursue them.
Expo state manager Chris Brooks says there has been an increase in the jobs on offer since the global financial crisis so there is more choice for job seekers this year.
‘‘ Companies and industry are telling us they are here in 2012 to talk to South Australian talent and recruit,’’ Brooks says.
He says that exhibitors attend because they want to talk directly to candidates, graduates, apprentices and school leavers.
