Craig Whittaker MP is hosting Calderdale’s first ever virtual A-Z Careers Fair on Wednesday 13 October.
The event is being held online, using a virtual events platform, and will bring together a whole list of professionals representing every letter of the alphabet.
It is an opportunity for students, career changers, and those unemployed to come and meet with local and national professionals and to ask questions to find out if their job interests them.
Among those professionals are local architects, graphic designers, lawyers and even a zookeeper.
“I am incredibly proud to be hosting this event which is a great opportunity for anyone thinking about their next career move to obtain extremely valuable information about the jobs that interest them, directly from those who work in those industries.
I’ve teamed up with more than 10 secondary schools and colleges across Calderdale, as well as the local Job Centres and career organisations, to promote this A-Z Career event to students, career changers, and those unemployed to help them learn about available job opportunities, meet directly with over 40 different professionals, and discover their own future career paths.”
Each professional will have their own virtual ‘booth’ where attendees can visit and speak with the professionals about their career journeys and ask for any advice they can give about starting their own.
The event will be officially opened on the virtual ‘Main Stage’ by Craig and the Minister for Employment, Mims Davies MP, followed by a short Q&A and a ‘Find your Career Goals’ session delivered by Google Digital Garage.
Some companies attending have graduate recruitment and apprenticeship schemes, and some will be actively recruiting at the event. It is unique opportunity for those looking to start or restart their careers to get their foot in the door, whilst developing their communication and networking skills.
The event will take place on Wednesday 13 October, 16:30 – 19:00. You need to register to attend the event via the link below: https://hopin.com/events/craig-s-a-z-careers-fair-2021
