Careers Expo 2016. Where futures are launched.

Careers Expo 2016 will be held on 12–15 May at the spectacular Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Entry is free.

Over four days, nearly 100 exhibitors – universities, TAFEs, government departments, training providers and employers – will present a huge range of career and employment pathways.

It’s an unmissable opportunity for students in years 9–12 to decide on tertiary or vocational courses or to select upper-school subjects, and to get face-to-face with employers. It’s also great inspiration for adults looking for an exciting change of career.

The event has been staged every year since 2000, with nearly 150,000 students and parents having so far attended.

At Careers Expo 2016 you can talk with all of WA’s universities and major training and vocational organisations, all under one roof.
