The 2018 Canberra CareersXpo is hosted by the Rotary Club of Canberra City with support from the ACT Education Directorate and incorporates 4 programs in one with a Wednesday evening program for parents and students.
The CareersXpo provides exhibitors with a target audience of upwards of 9000 students and adults looking for advice and information on career possibilities nationally, including employment options, change of employment, and future career possibilities. The 2018 program includes a forum dedicated to informing parents and students facing new and dynamic changes to future employment, about courses designed to meet professional and employer’s needs.
Exhibitors come from a broad cross section of providers including Federal and State Government institutions, tertiary institutions (local, interstate and overseas), employer organisations, private colleges, apprenticeship centres and numerous individual businesses.
We encourage recognition of the rapidly changing nature of the jobs market, into the future – be it professional, business or commercial, trade or a range of emerging entrepreneurial opportunities. Thus the need for multi skilling, innovation, digital engagement, financial and people management and to expose students, teachers and parents to courses that will meet the needs of future employment options.
