Thirty-eight exhibitors are expected to take part in the expo including eight from overseas, some of which are tertiary education providers.
The annual event is a chance for students to explore their future career pathways and choices.
This year Rarotonga students will be joined by 60 of their outer island counterparts from the southern group islands. For northern group islands students, life skills workshops will be delivered to their schools.
On the day, overseas exhibitors will include Auckland University, Auckland University of Technology, Manukau Institute of Technology, Massey University, Otago University, Vision College, Waikato University and joining the expo for the first time this year will be Fiji National University.
There were a number of workshops and information evenings leading up to the Careers Expo. Tereora College conducted its orientation day for outer island students on July 19. The boys only ‘Boy Zone’ workshop, which this year was restricted just to the outer island male students, took place on Monday and for female students, the Women in Science and Technology workshop was once again held at the National Council of Women’s office in Tauae on Monday.
Students have been given the opportunity to get further understanding of their chosen careers through a work experience placement programme which this year has been run over three days leading up to Careers Expo.
This year’s Careers Expo event promises to be a learning experience for students and adults alike.
