CAREER options from car mechanic to computer programmer will be on display at Ballarat Grammar next week.
The 18th annual Ballarat Careers Expo will be held on Monday night and is open to all parents and students in the region.
John Taylor of the Rotary Club of Wendouree said more than 150 occupations would be represented at the event.
“We’ve got a huge number of careers on display and they span both professional and trade careers, as well as careers in government areas like the police force and ambulance service,” he said.
“The strength of the expo is that students are able to find out about a ‘day in the life’ of people in different careers.
“If they decide they want to be an automotive worker for example, we’ve got someone there they can talk to who’s actually in that job.”
Mr Taylor said feedback from previous expos had shown the event was as much benefit to parents as students.
The careers expo is on from 7pm to 9pm on Monday at Ballarat Grammar School. Entry is $1.
