New Initiatives for 2017

 

Jobs and Job Opportunity Exhibition

 
A new program ‘Skills, Employment and Career Opportunities’ is being introduced in 2017 to enable small, medium and large businesses to reach out to students and explain what they do; what type of jobs are available; and what higher education and training courses are required, or are on offer.

Public Forum:  Choose Wisely: Matching Course Choice to Career Realities for Students and Parents

 

 

Wednesday 2 August 2017 - 5.30pm to 6.30pm

 
 
As part of this year’s CareersXpo a forum will be held to discuss the rapidly changing nature and flexibility of available and developing jobs into the future. The forum chaired by Kate Carnell, Australian Small Business Ombudsman, with a distinguished panel of forward thinkers from a wide range of fields – Robyn Hendry, CEO Canberra Business Chamber, entrepreneurial businessman Brand Hoff, Professor Mick Cardew-Hall, Pro Vice Chancellor of ANU and Jenny Lambert of ACCI.
 
 
The Forum is a new CareersXpo initiative and the theme recognises evolving changes in the jobs market, or indeed self-employment, and the need for an open mind about opportunity, multi skilling and innovation. As well as the basic need for quality further education - to acquire skills such as digital engagement, social media, management, financial and people management - as a fundamental to be “ahead of the pack”.
 
 
The Forum is FREE.  Click here to book a seat.  To download a Flyer for the Forum click here
