Careers showcase brings industry professionals under the one roof

Posted on in Senior School

St Mary’s College Senior School students had the chance to connect and network with industry experts from around Tasmania during the Southern Catholic College Careers Showcase, held recently at MAC 02 on Hobart’s waterfront.

The inaugural event, which attracted more than 2,000 students from 10 southern Catholic Colleges, highlighted the wide range of rewarding career opportunities that are available in a variety of industries.

Exhibitors included Microsoft, Defence, Tasmanian Health Services, Sustainable Timber, VOS, University of Tasmania, Keystone Tasmania and Hazell Bros, with employers and professionals on hand to speak with the students and share insights into future pathways.

At the event, students explored emerging and interactive virtual technologies; they jumped behind the wheel of a fire truck from Tasmania Fire Service, cared for patients in the back of an ambulance (courtesy of Ambulance Tasmania), and tried their hand at building a box as part of Build Up Tassie’s exhibit, which gives students first-hand experience (on a much smaller scale) of what it would be like when using tools that will help build houses in Tasmania.
