Fraser Coast Ca­reers in dis­abil­ity show­case

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - OPINION -

LATE last month more than 100 com­mu­nity mem­bers at­tended the Fraser Coast Ca­reers in Dis­abil­ity Show­case to learn more about a fu­ture career sup­port­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­ity.

While some wanted to learn about the types of roles and train­ing avail­able, oth­ers were com­mit­ted to tak­ing a more def­i­nite step into a new career.

Within two-and-a-half hours, seven em­ploy­ers con­ducted ap­prox­i­mately 200 speed in­ter­views with lo­cal job seek­ers.

The night has al­ready led to of­fers of em­ploy­ment, iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of hosts for place­ments and en­rol­ments in cour­ses for fur­ther skilling.

The even­ing’s suc­cess could not have been achieved with­out the lo­cal WorkA­bil­ity Qld Work­ing Group mem­bers, the Her­vey Bay Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre, South­ern Cross Aus­tereo and the sup­port of the Fraser Coast Re­gional Coun­cil.

WorkA­bil­ity Qld would like to thank these peo­ple and our re­gions em­ploy­ers, or­gan­i­sa­tions and job seek­ers, for mak­ing the night such a suc­cess­ful and pos­i­tive step for­ward for the fu­ture work­force.
