Employment and Skills fair focuses on 'real career paths'

Fri, 03 Nov 2023

Professional people will share insights about their career journeys at an employment event in Douglas next month.

The Department of Education, Sport and Culture’s (DESC) employment and skills fair will be held at the Villa Marina on November 9.

More than 1,000 young people will attend the event, which will shine a light on the importance of transferable skills and the sometimes unconventional career paths people take.

Students from all five secondary schools, University College Isle of Man and King William’s College will be given the chance to meet and engage with around 60 exhibitors, representing a diverse range of sectors including the creative industries, finance, hospitality, Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) and uniformed services.

Leading up to the fair, DESC’s Careers’ Team is inviting local businesses and members of the community to participate in a social media campaign ‘#learningforlife’ to highlight their unique career journeys.

For more information about Employment and Skills 2023 or to get involved in the #learningforlife campaign, visit the DESC Signposts website.
