Canterbury Bankstown Council will host the free event in partnership with the NSW Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment on Wednesday and Thursday, September 16-17.
You could meet your future employer, browse through a range of casual, part time, full-time, traineeships and apprenticeships, or develop your skills, listen to industry specialists, take part in workshops and access career development programs.
“Careers+ is about pulling everything together, regardless of your level of experience, to become a one-stop-shop for job seekers and employers,” Mayor Khal Asfour said.
“This is an opportune time for many in the community who have lost jobs or are looking to change their careers.”
One of those exhibitors is Planet Group of Companies, whose human resources manager Cheryl Williams says local employers who employ local workers see many benefits.
These include seeing workers become strong advocates for their employer, have better work-life balance and perform jobs better because they’re invested in their community.
Ms Williams said the expo presented all job seekers, and those transitioning from school to the workforce, with great opportunities.
“Our objective is to offer community members an overall understanding of our industry … and help with tips and tools to prepare them for the recruitment process,” she said.
Mayor Asfour encouraged people to register and participate in the first virtual jobs skills expo.
