This year is our 21st Birthday at Careers Day Out. Throughout these years this event has been organised by dedicated local community volunteers wanting to make a difference, through education options, career advice and even into employment. Careers Day Out is one of the largest education, training and employment expos in Northern Victoria, with over 1,400 students attending in 2018 and growing every year.
This year Careers Day Out is proudly sponsored by La Trobe University and GOTAFE, helping all regional year 10 students to discover their career pathway, further training options or future employment opportunities.
Our exhibitors this year will be providing interactive displays to provide students opportunities to get involved in hands on activities. With a vast range of exhibitors including TAFE’s, Universities, other training providers, industry associations, local industry, employers, employment and support agencies, we are sure the students will not be bored. Oh, and don't forget the Emergency Services scenario display. Watch as Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, CFA and Search and Rescue demonstrate their roles through an accident scene.
We want active participation by students through interactive displays, competitions, give-aways, and loads of other activities to ensure the day is engaging and worthwhile for everyone.

This program is designed to assist people who are a job seeker and not in full time education or employment.The program is aimed at researching and exploring all facets of your potential Business idea and putting these into practice.
Also we will chat to a local entrepreneur about how he started his own marketing business right here in the GV.

Shepparton Chamber of Commerce are also helping us create the biggest local jobs board you and I have ever seen. If it's a job you need or you are a business with jobs available, make sure you get along and pin it up on our "Jobs in the GV" jobs board.
There will be food available on the night so bring the family down and explore what the GV has to offer.
