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.

Visit the­job­show.com.au to sub­mit your ap­pli­ca­tion, list

va­can­cies if you are an em­ployer or se­cure one of the lim­ited ex­hi­bi­tion stalls.

The event runs from 10am to 4pm.

A full list of 500 jobs will run in Tues­day’s Daily.
