Start Career expo grows by the year
More than 1500 South Waikato students have a better idea of what they want to do with life after attending the Start Career and Start Living Expo.
Students from Forest View High School, Tokoroa High School and Putaruru College were bused down to the expo that packed out the South Waikato Sports and Events Centre.
More than 50 exhibitors lined the walls, with everything from the defence forces to South Seas Films on display.
Organiser Tracey Dean said they had exhibitors from all over the country attend, including Canterbury University and the Manukau Institute of Technology.
‘‘This is a walking South Waikato life expo. It’s far more powerful than a careers expo.’’
Every year the event is growing, she said.
‘‘There were about 20 exhibitors the first year. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.’’
Zoe Brindle, Clydille Abbott, Stacia Storer-Tilby and Shania Turuwhenua consider what’s best for them.
