500 POSITIONS GOING IN ONE DAY
Connecting employers, candidates
AN exclusive shot at hundreds of jobs available in the competitive Sunshine Coast market will open up to keen seekers next week.
More than 50 exhibitors will feature in the JobShow: Jobs, Skills and Business Expo at the Mooloolaba TAFE campus on Tuesday, October 16.Managing director Kris McCue said Youi alone was offering more than 100 positions and Glass House Brewery is seeking 25 staff ahead of their November opening.
A jobs board will go live on the day featuring a range of apprenticeships, traineeships and roles in health, aged care, community services, retail, hospitality and tourism.
Jobseeker workshops will help potential employees to write a resume and gather job-search tips, and employer seminars explain asset protection and how to maximise NBN for business.
“We are looking good to hit our target of 500 jobs available on the day. We are still listing jobs and will be right up until the show,” Mr McCue said.
He acknowledged finding work on the Sunshine Coast was difficult, with an administration job earning $60,000 a year likely to attract hundreds of applicants, for example.
He explained this was tough for jobseekers facing a
competitive market, but also employers overwhelmed by the demand and lacking the human resources to screen applicants.
“These events give people the opportunity to overcome that in some respects, to make
that connection with employers,” Mr McCue said.
JobShow will accept job applications, screen them and refer them onto the relevant employers.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm.
A full list of 500 jobs will run in Tuesday’s Daily.
