Jobs and Skills Expo

Jobs and Skills Expo More than 50 exhibitors, employers and education and training providers will be available for the hundreds of people expected to attend. No  

More than 50 exhibitors, employers and education and training providers will be available for the hundreds of people expected to attend the annual South-West Sydney Jobs and Skills Expo, on Thursday 23 August (9.30am-2.30pm), at Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre.

Navitas Program Manager, Rachel Burton, who is returning as a trainer and presenter for the fifth time, said the event is one not to be missed.

"The knowledge you’re able to tap into at this event is like no other," Ms Burton said.

"I helped a lady who came to the expo concerned about her resume. She had been applying for jobs for some time and just couldn’t understand why she wasn’t getting any call backs. With a little help, she was in a new job within the month. She had made some small mistakes, but mistakes she would have continued to have made without professional help.

"The workshops and classes are also a highlight of the expo, in particular those about resume writing and applying for positions. In my opinion, the people who are skilled as a result of attending these are far more likely to be successful when applying for a job."

This year’s event will feature:

  • More than 50 exhibitors, including major employers, education and training providers, support services and community and government organisations;
  • A jobs board, displaying more than 1,000 available positions across 20 industries;
  • Workshops, with one-on-one and group discussions;
  • Major employers accepting job applications;
  • Tertiary and VET courses accepting enrolments;
  • Apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities and demonstrations;
  • Pop-up industry shows;
  • Mock interview and resume building workshops; and
  • Free hotdog lunch (11.30am-1.30pm).

Presentations on the day include:

  • Work experience and graduate programs and employment and education pathways by the City of Canterbury Bankstown (9.30am and 10am respectively);
  • Manufacturing internship and jobs programs by L&A Pressure Welding (10.30am);
  • Aviation careers by Bankstown Airport and retail jobs by Bankstown Central (11am);
  • School programs by Beacon Foundation (11.30am);
  • Discover your unlimited potential by Western Sydney University (noon);
  • Education training and employment in the health industry by ETEA Australia (12.30pm);
  • Becoming job-ready by Navitas English (1pm); and
  • Trying trade apprenticeships, by Transport Sydney Trains, and Supporting and Linking Tradeswomen (1.30pm).
