Just the job for ad­vice

The Advertiser - Careers - - Job -

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.

WORK­ING WELL: Peo­ple flock to a pre­vi­ous Na­tional Ca­reers and Em­ploy­ment Expo.
