Description

We've reinvented the careers night!

Back by popular demand! Following the overwhelming success of Find Their Feet last year, we're back in 2019 this time at Charles La Trobe College.

Much more than a careers expo, Find Their Feet is a personalised three-step journey into the future world of work for High School students and their families. Using current interests, strengths and skills as a starting point and one-on-one conversations with real employers as your guide, students will leave feeling inspired and confident with a much clearer idea of where they’re headed and how to get there.

A three step journey:

1. On arrival, students get to reflect on their own unique interests, strengths and skills. With a bit of help they select an ‘avatar’ that best represents them — they might be a ‘Behind the scenes organiser’ that loves running events for friends and family, a ‘gamer' that likes programming and building things or a socialite that enjoys meeting new people.
2. In the main event space, students encounter an immersive city scape representing the future world of work. It's divided into six distinct zones, one for each of the main employment growth areas in the north. In this informal setting, students and their parents chat one-on-one with future focused employers using their avatar as an ice-breaker and conversation starter.
3. Reflecting on what they’ve discovered, students place their ‘avatar’ in the zone that most interests them. You won’t leave with a showbag full of brochures — instead, students take away a little bit of the wisdom and enthusiasm of the passionate people they’ve met. Plus practical information and advice about the all-important next steps.

These are FREE events but places are limited. Don't miss out, book NOW! There are three sessions, and each session will run for 45 minutes.
