Interest's on the rise for Careers Market Day
PLANNING for the 2019 Biloela Careers Market Day is under way and interest in the vocation information day is on the rise.
Co-ordinator for the event David Kidd said it was a great opportunity for students to get an understanding of what skills are required for certain employment in the workforce.
"This has been going for about 12 years now and it's a way for school kids to see what subjects they will have to study for whatever career path they choose when they leave high school,” Mr Kidd said.
"We will have local businesses, industries and universities all with stalls and information to help guide them for their future employment options.”
To make sure students don't treat it a day off to get out of school, there will be a quiz required to answer when engaging at the various stalls.
"Rather than just look around and talk to a couple of stalls, we want the students to engage in as many as they can to see what options they have when they finish high school,” Mr Kidd said.
The careers market day is open to schools and businesses in the Banana Shire.
"We get a positive feedback from high schools around Moura, Theodore and Biloela and we are getting some interest already,” he said. "This is about helping to steer the next generation in the right direction for their future.”
The careers market day will be on June 24 at the Biloela Civic Centre.
It is free for exhibitors to attend and first students are expected to arrive at 9.15am. The day will close with the final students at 2.30pm.
