The CareersXpo is designed for students, parents, teachers, careers advisers and adults looking for advice and information on career and education possibilities.

Exhibitors come from a broad cross section of providers including tertiary and vocational education institutions (local, interstate and overseas), Federal and State Government institutions, employer organisations and numerous individual businesses.

In 2017 there were in excess of 100 exhibitors from a broad cross section of providors including:

  • 20 Universities from Australia and New Zealand
  • 32 TAFE and other training organisations covering a wide range of professions, trades and apprenticeships
  • 21 vocational, gap year, employment options and student accommodation displays
  • 6 employers from the government and private sector
  • 8 organisations specialising in apprenticeships
  • 8 Government Departments (Federal and ACT)
  • 3 Professional Institutes

What’s happening in 2018

  • We are very excited to announce that this year’s CareersXpo falls in National Science Week! So we will have even more exhibitors and activities related to science as well as technology, engineering and mathematics.
  • Try’aSkill will again be located across two separate spaces in the Budawang Building and the Parkes Room. The Try’aSkill STEM Cell will feature forensic science, fitness, surveying, engineering, cyber security and NAO the Robot.
  • Exhibitors in the second Try’aSkill exhibit include nursing, hair and beauty, horticulture, bricklaying, automotive, hospitality and arboriculture to give students an opportunity to experience firsthand VET based trade and skill activities.
  • We are also very pleased to have SALT (Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen) with their trade quality trailer, tools and equipment in attendance to encourage and promote women in non traditional trade industries.

Pathways to a Job

We have created seven Pathways to a Job worksheets to help students prepare for their visit to the CareersXpo. Each Pathways to a Job has relevant occupation videos, bullseye posters and CareersXpo exhibitors for a particular field or industry. Students can use these worksheets as a tool to ensure they make the most of this year’s CareersXpo.

You can access the Pathways to a Job below: 


Indigenous Employment Exhibition.

The Indigenous Employment Exhibition will continue to raise awareness of career and education opportunities including support services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in the ACT.  Young people will have the opportunity to chat to a wide variety of organisations about what services and support they provide the Indigenous community.
