The Newcastle Lake Macquarie Career & Training Expo was held on Thursday 18th May 2017 at the Newcastle Jockey Club.
This Leading Careers Expo attracted a record number of local and interstate exhibitors, including: major universities, leading training colleges and community organisations.
Owing to the continual growth of the Newcastle Lake Macquarie Career & Training Expo, Career Links and RDA Hunter’s ME Program developed our brand new Industry Pavilion. Within the Industry Pavilion there was employers from major industry sectors, including aerospace, mining, defence, etc offering advice and guidance on careers within their industry. The Industry Pavilion had over 20 exhibitors including RDA Hunter’s ME Program (Industry Sponsor) and Defence Force Recruiting (Supporting Partner). The Industry Pavilion ensured that the event accommodated the majority of student’s career aspirations. In 2017 Career Links developed a new floor plan for the Glasshouse and with the addition of the Industry Pavilion, there was a 20% increase in exhibitor stands.
