Top expo for the out of work

TODAY Wide Bay TAFE will be a one-stop shop for jobs.

The Keep Australia Working Jobs and Skills Expo will be held at the Wide Bay TAFE in Hervey Bay from 10am to 3pm and information on hundreds of jobs will be available to local job seekers.

Centrelink’s Jobs Expo national manager Malcolm Mill said the Fraser Coast Jobs and Skills Expo was shaping up as one of the best so far from the 35 expos which have been held across the country.

“This expo will provide one of the best opportunities in a long time for local job seekers to connect with a job. It will be a one-stop shop for jobs,” Mr Mill said.

“Centrelink, together with the support of the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, is working to provide positive outcomes for job seekers.”

Mr Mill said the approach had worked in addressing unemployment and skills shortages across Australia, with more than 15,700 people connected with jobs after attending the expos.

Tracey Mason of local employment and training provider, SITE, said the Jobs and Skills Expo was a great opportunity for local job seekers.

“The expo is a great way for job seekers to re-engage with potential employers and training opportunities, while being able to see that there are many possibilities available in this region that they may not necessarily see on a day-to-day basis.”
