Hundreds of jobs and training opportunities are up for grabs today at the Australian Government Jobs and Skills Expo at the Derwent Entertainment Centre in Hobart.

 Today’s Glenorchy Expo puts local job seekers in touch with employers, training organisations and industry representatives.

 This is a great chance for local job seekers and businesses across southern Tasmania to come together and explore local job opportunities.

 Amongst the many jobs on offer are some very diverse employment opportunities from jobs in construction to accounting and from hospitality to retail.

 From early childhood educators and cooks to apprentice chefs and housekeepers – whoever you are, there are great job and training opportunities at the Jobs and Skills Expo.

 The Gillard Government understands that breaking into the workforce can be difficult. This Expo is a practical way of making the search for a job a bit easier.

 With more than 60 exhibitors at the Hobart Jobs and Skills Expo, job seekers are encouraged to come armed with their resumes to take advantage of this unique opportunity to do months’ worth of job searching in a single day.

 To help people access the Expo, the Government has put in place a special free bus services that will operate to and from the Expo throughout the region to ensure everyone has a chance to explore all the employment opportunities available. 

 The Gillard Government’s Jobs and Skills Expos are achieving real results for job seekers across the country – we have delivered 69 Jobs and Skills Expos and we know that they work because we’ve now seen nearly 25,000 Australians find employment at an Expo, and many thousands more sign up for training opportunities.
