The Hervey Bay Careers in Disability Showcase was held on Tuesday the 29th of May at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre.
Approximately 100 members of the Fraser Coast community attended the event. Attendees were from a variety of backgrounds including those actively seeking work, career changers and students. Many attendees came to learn more about the types of roles and training available, while others were committed to taking a more definite step into a new career.
There were 7 interviewing tables which conducted hundreds of speed interviews with the 56 job seekers who registered for an opportunity to participate in interviews. Employers were pleased with the opportunity to source potential future employees. They also reported that the night facilitated multiple training work placements to support the skilling of the future workforce.
The success of the event could not have been achieved without the local WorkAbility Qld Working Group members, the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre and the generous sponsorship of the Fraser Coast Regional Council.
