Students from across the South Burnett had the opportunity to explore their after-school options on Thursday at the annual South Burnett Careers Market hosted at the Kingaroy TAFE campus.
There were opportunities to get hands-on experience in several trades as well as the chance to talk to current workers to learn about the benefits of their career choice.
As always, emergency services had a strong contingent, from police and SES volunteers to ambulance paramedics and firefighters.
Students who attended the expo came from Years 10 to 12.
Schools this year included St John’s Lutheran School, St Mary’s Catholic College, Proston and Goomeri P-10s, Yarraman and Wondai P-9s, Burnett State College at Gayndah, and Kingaroy, Nanango and Murgon State High schools.
Information was available on the various career opportunities available to TAFE students, but several universities and other training organisations also had large displays.
Major local employers, including Bega PCA, Stanwell and Swickers also had stands.
