Dubbo College SeniorCampus was looking to thefuture last week with theschool’s annual Jobs Expo.
About 700 students from 15schools attended the expo togather information from 40providers.
Dubbo College careersadvisor Caroline Watts said theexpo was important to preparethe students for their futurecareers.
“The important thing for usis that we have year 10s in themiddle of picking subjectchoices. They can talk to theproviders and ask ‘what do youlook for? What subjects do youlook for?’
“It’s also really calming inone way that you can talk tothem and plan for what you’regoing to do next year. This isthe time when students arelooking at universities andpeople are organisingapprenticeships.”
Ms Watts said the Jobs Expoalso allowed the students todiscuss less traditionalpathways to their chosencareer.
“Something kids don’t realiseis that there are many pathwaysto get into things,” Ms Wattssaid.
“I’m a careers advisor sowhen I speak to them they say‘what would you know?’ Whenthey hear it from someone inthe industry it suddenly dawnson them.”
Dubbo College Year 12students Ashleigh Worboys andJenna Barker said the Jobs Expogave them a chance to plan fortheir career.
“We can find out about otherpathways if we don’t get themarks we need to get intouniversity,” Jenna said.
“It saves us from travellingeverywhere else. Otherwiseyou have to travel to all theopen days and events.”
