Job seekers have had the opportunity to explore current employment opportunities across northern Tasmania and engage in a range of workshops at the Australian Government’s Launceston Jobs Fair.
The Jobs Fair includes employers with vacancies across industries such as construction, disability and aged services, hospitality and food production.
Job seekers were also able to engage in workshops to help with resumes, interview tips and improving job searches.
The Jobs Fair is a great way to find out what opportunities are out there and the skills that different jobs require, which for many Tasmanians is the next step to getting the right training to secure a career.
We know that with Tasmania’s economy recovering there are plenty of opportunities out there for Tasmanians to grasp across a broad range of industries.
TasTAFE, our largest vocational education and training provider, was at the Jobs Fair to discuss how easy it is to enrol in the right training for the career Tasmanians want.
Through SKILL-UP at TasTAFE, job seekers can enrol in the no-fee places available across 12 courses ranging from managing agriculture workers and business computing, to tourism customer service, barista training and digital media, as well as a construction ‘taster program’.
In addition, the newly created Jobs Tasmania unit has already begun work with the Australian Government to better coordinate efforts to get more people on a pathway into work or training.
As our network of Regional Jobs Hubs is rolled out by Jobs Tasmania we can expect to see more jobs fairs in other parts of the state to help local employers connect with local job seekers.
