Careers Market variety empowers students
Thousands of high school students and job seekers over the years have found their career calling as a result of the industry, college, university and employer variety exhibiting at the annual Ipswich Careers Market.
Entry is free to the largest careers expo in the greater Ipswich region, the 2011 Ipswich Careers Market, being held on Wednesday, 3 August from 9am to 3pm at The Bremer TAFE Bundamba campus, Mary Street Bundamba.
A wealth of industry expertise, interactive displays, and a bounty of information resources on offer at the 2011 event being held this Wednesday, again promises to empower visitors to find flexible and proven pathways to career success.
The Bremer TAFE event coordinator Victoria Dimitrov said the 2011 Ipswich Careers Market will bring together over 60 exhibitors from a broad range of fields including trade, manufacturing, community, health, corporate, hospitality, beauty, design, and recruitment.
"We've ensured that there's something for everyone so it's a win-win for students, teachers and exhibitors. The variety of career and employment pathways available ensures that most interests are catered for with timely advice and information," Ms Dimitrov said.
"Visitors can experience an innovative range of interactive displays and collect brochures, flyers and other material to make the most of further education and career research..
"School leavers can even start the application process for some TAFE and college programs on-the-spot, request further information from exhibitors, connect with recruitment and employment agencies, or even gain a foot-hold with employers.
"They can even talk to Paul Pisasale, Mayor of Ipswich to find out about his career journey and rise as a community and Council leader.
"For a fun break from information gathering, rock wall climbing, face painting and an animal nursery farm will again be here at the Market as they were such a hit with visitors last year."
WorldSkills Australia will be showcasing their interactive Try'aTrade program allowing visitors to try various skills and trade areas, and the atmosphere will be electric as they hold their bi-annual regional competition live onsite in a first for the Market.
Students from The Bremer TAFE will be vying for a place in welding, turning, bricklaying, fitting, and landscape construction as they compete live in front of the WorldSkills Australia official judging panel and Careers Market visitors.
Competition place getters will advance to the National Competition being held next year.
Ms Dimitrov said The Bremer TAFE teachers and students will also be out in force with live demonstrations of their skills across 30 displays showcasing every industry area from automotive, engineering, business, hairdressing, hospitality, and visual arts.
"Hair and beauty teachers and current students will be styling hair and painting nails, hospitality students will demonstrate their food and beverage flair, and graphic design technology and artworks will also be on display," she said.
