ORGANISERS of the 2014 Western Victorian Careers Expo have urged everyone across the region to make the most of the occasion.
Expo chairman Chris Wallis said the expo had grown to become the premier careers expo in western Victoria.
He said the event brought together general exhibitors, interactive industry experiences – Try-A-Trade sites – and an extensive seminar program.
“This year’s event will assemble the largest number of exhibitors in the event’s 28-year history,” he said.
“The expo will allow people to talk face to face with exhibitors, get involved in hands-on activities, listen to expert advice and gather vital information about the possibilities and processes involved in a large array of career options.
“We encourage students, parents, graduates, job seekers, career changers, those returning to work, those wanting to do more study or training – there will be something there for everyone.
“We invite people to head to our website to check out the extensive exhibitor list and programs for the day.”
Mr Wallis said the Victoria Police display was a great example of the type of resources available to people at the careers expo.
“Anyone in the community who has considered becoming a police officer or protective services officer should make the time to come out to Longerenong and catch up with staff at the Victoria Police site,” he said.
Mr Wallis said another highlight of the expo would be a display and two presentations from zoologist Chris Humfrey.
“We look forward to seeing many people from across the region take advantage of having such a comprehensive array of careers information available to them in one place,” he said.
Mr Wallis said the careers expo would be at Wimmera Events Centre at Longerenong from 9.30am to 2pm on Tuesday.
He said entry was free and people could go to wimmeracareerexpo.com for more information.
