One-stop shop for the future at this year's career expo

THIS year's Career Expo is a one-stop shop for the future.

Finding a career can be as simple as stopping by and chatting to one of the friendly staff from the different industries represented.

Whether you wish to further your education or get basic information on the qualifications you need to get the job of your dreams, these are the people you need to speak to.

Some of the industries represented are employment services, training, local government, banking, the defence forces, the public service, police and emergency services and the building and construction industry.

The Expo, which has been held since 2009, is not only an event for school leavers, but is open to the community to help people improve skills or employment prospects.

"This Expo is all about pathways," said organiser Matt Allard.

"It's open to anyone looking for a career pathway, not just another job."

Mr Allard, from the Gympie Regional Council, has been running the event since it started, and says this year there are more than 50 exhibitors to help young people decide in which direction to take their life, with two industries - dentistry and child care - represented for the first time.

"We really want to try to encourage all sorts of people to come along and see what's on offer," he said.

The Expo is open to every-one and is free. It's being held at The Pavilion, tomorrow, 10am-2pm.
