Sydney job seekers and school leavers take note! The National Careers & Employment Expo is heading to Sydney, to be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre on the 9th and 10th May, 2008. ENTRY IS FREE.
The National Careers & Employment Expo is a unique opportunity for employers and prospective employees to meet and talk in a relaxed, non-threatening environment to discuss career prospects, career advancements and maybe even a new career direction! More than 130 exhibitors will be present from a diverse group of industries including retail, mining, government, tourism, education, finance and more.
Some of the exhibitors at the 2008 Sydney Expo are Department of Water & Energy, Esprit, Hamilton island, JMC Academy, Wodonga TAFE, Wattyl Australia, University of New South Wales and University of Western Sydney. The South Australian Government’s Adelaide Make the Move is a prime exhibitor at the Expo.
Friday 9th May is Education Day. Schools and university students from across New South Wales will descend on the Expo to meet employers and their representatives who will be able to discuss career paths, salary expectations and career advancement opportunities amongst many things. All job seekers are encouraged to attend.
Looking for a new career move? Or maybe you’re a stay-at-home mum or dad looking to get back into the workforce? Maybe you’ve been a round peg in the square hole at your current work place? The Expo is there to encourage people to think about not only their skills but also their interests and provide a number of opportunities – many of which may never have been considered before.
The National Careers & Employment Expo is run by EOC Group Pty Ltd and run as a community event. Company spokesperson Julie McConachy, General Manager says “It is important for companies to brand themselves as an Employer of Choice. In today’s interviews it is not just the company doing the interviewing. The candidates are also interviewing the company. People today do their research and they want information about the culture, growth, opportunities to work interstate and overseas and training to name a few. They will also investigate what other skills they may need to follow particular career paths and whether the company will subsidise these courses”.
At a time when Australia is experiencing a skills shortage and employers are looking for new and interesting ways of keeping employees in long term employment, the National Careers & Employment Expo is the place for visitors to network, seek free advice, research career and education prospects as well as pinpoint employment opportunities.
The National Careers & Employment Expo will be held on the 9th and 10th May at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre. On Friday the Expo starts at 9am and closes at 4pm and on Saturday the doors open at 10am and close at 4pm. ENTRY IS FREE. For more information visit www.eoc.com.au
