Chase for careers on

THOUSANDS of young people will converge on the Pavilion today to gather information on career pathways at this year's Gympie Regional Careers Expo.

Running from 10am to 4pm with free admission, the expo is a platform for sharing information about the employment, training and career choices available around the Gympie region.

Gympie Regional Council youth and community development officer Matt Allard is expecting a great 2012 careers expo with more than 60 exhibitors from local industries, universities, TAFE, defence forces and emergency services.

"The expo aims to give students the opportunity to explore higher education goals, as well as gain up to date information on careers," Mr Allard said.

People looking at changing careers, graduates, unemployed people, those returning to work, and mature age workers will also find information at the expo targeted towards them.

Mr Allard also encourages parents to get involved.

"It is important for parents to bring children in Year 7 and 8 because if they can gain the information early, they can action it more strategically and choose the right subjects to get the career they want," he said.
