The second annual Careers Expo, held at the Barambah Youth Services Hub in Murgon last Friday, attracted more than 20 stalls and a has been hailed as a success.
The Expo provided an opportunity for young people to explore a variety of employment opportunities.
The number of stalls was higher than last year, giving students more opportunities to expand their knowledge about employment options and requirements.
Highlights of the day included a live broadcast by Cherbourg Radio, presentations from stall holders and a performance by the Australian Army Band which had come along in support of a recruitment drive for the Army Reserve.
Hub manager Gaye O’Sullivan said some fabulous material and activities had been provided by the stall holders.
“Thank you to all the organisations that attended on the day and provided information to young people,” Gaye said.
“And thank you to those that supported the day, including Darling Downs Health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, Gundoo Day Care Centre and Cherbourg Radio.
“A fantastic day was had by everyone that attended!”
Gaye said the Barambah Youth Services Hub continues to offer a range of services to support the health and wellbeing of students and young people aged 6-24.
Anyone who would like to know more about a service, or arrange a confidential appointment, should contact the Hub on (07) 4172-9728 or by email.
