The Western Victoria Careers Expo is run by the Wimmera and Southern Mallee Careers Association is country Victoria's largest careers expo.
The expo will use interactive webinars presented by regional, metropolitan and interstate career, industry and course advisors.
As regional areas can be isolated, the career expo aims to provide regional students and jobseekers with a broad range of vocational and course information, as well as career pathways advice in a 'one-stop shop' event in their area.
The expo aims to make available a broad spectrum of careers/jobs role models, especially for those in isolated and remote communities of Western Victoria and to offer current advice regarding qualifications, training and prerequisites, business prospects and vocational opportunities to students, careers-changers, jobseekers and parents.
This is an opportunity for regional students of all kinds to gain insight from many different industry advisors, from tertiary education, farming equipment, health and law.
