Wide Bay-Burnett Jobs Fair connects job seekers with employers

A jobs fair in Maryborough on Wednesday 31 July 2019 will showcase a range of employment opportunities for Wide Bay job seekers.

The Wide Bay-Burnett Jobs Fair, funded by the Morrison Government, will bring together job seekers and more than 30 local businesses who will host booths and promote employment opportunities available in the region.

Minister for Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business Michaelia Cash said the jobs fair will provide people looking for work an opportunity to speak directly with employers and employment service providers.

“The Morrison Government has held jobs fairs in various locations around Australia. They have been extremely successful with more than 14,000 people attending jobs fairs in the last year,” Minister Cash said.

“The Government is committed to getting more Australians into work. As Minister for Employment, I am determined to ensure that job seekers in Wide Bay and the surrounding Burnett community are given all the assistance they need to gain sustainable employment.”

Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien MP says the jobs fair will provide people looking for work with employment options.

“The Wide Bay-Burnett Jobs Fair is an event not to be missed. I encourage the community to take advantage of the range of information that will be available to job seekers on the day,” Mr O’Brien said.

Job seekers will hear from local businesses in Wide Bay’s top five industries about the skills they look for when recruiting new employees.

Throughout the day, workshops and information sessions will provide job seekers with practical help on their résumés, information about the types of jobs that are available in the region, and tips on preparing for an interview.

The Jobs Fair is a free event at the Brolga Theatre and Convention Centre, from 10 am to 2 pm on Wednesday, 31 July 2019.
