RDA Far South Coast (New South Wales) is holding an Indigenous Employment Expo at the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre in Nowra on Tuesday 28 August and at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club at Kalaru on Wednesday 29 August. The Expos will be open from 10am—2pm AEST.
The event is being held in conjunction with the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations and entry is free.
Students and jobseekers will be able to receive advice on finding jobs, resume writing and interview skills. Training and educational providers, including TAFE and universities, will be available for enrolments and course information. Local businesses and industry groups will provide advice on local jobs, and information about current employment and training opportunities will also be available.
Approximately 65 exhibitors will be at each of the expo events providing information to more than 400 Indigenous students from high schools and TAFE colleges. It is expected that more than 200 Indigenous jobseekers from the South Coast will attend the events.
Special guests at the events include St George Illawarra Dragons community ambassador and rugby league legend Wendell Sailor (Nowra only), ABC News 24 Weekend Breakfast co-host and Message Stick presenter Miriam Corowa, and lecturer and Indigenous counsellor from Newcastle University Liz Cameron.
