Pathways to a Job


The eight ‘Pathways to a Job’ have been designed to focus students attention on particular occupations of interest so that they get more out of their visit to the CareersXpo. Each ‘Pathways to a Job’ has links to relevant occupation videos, career bullseye posters as well as the stalls to visit in Try’aSkill and the main arena of the CareersXpo. There is a Pathways to a Job for the following:



A new CareersXpo module has also been designed for the Pathways website to help students further prepare for their visit.
