Students explored over 60 exhibits from universities, government agencies, gap years, and big employers at the CEDA Careers Expo today. Students could enroll to vote, enlist in the military, or enjoy a virtual reality experience.
There were hands on job experiences including magnetic surveying, controlling logging robots, and resuscitating dummies. After a couple of quiet careers expo years, students were more than happy to don masks, ask questions and win prizes at the annual event.
Head of Careers, Mr McIntyre enjoyed watching students discover career opportunities they had no idea existed. He appreciated employers and tertiary institutes endorsing the importance of certain subject areas for future careers.
“One highlight for me”, reported an excited Mr McIntyre “was seeing (student) Caleb Meyer discovering the similarity between computer gaming and operating forestry machinery.”
Thanks to CEDA for organising the event and sunsidising our buses.
