Career opportunities to be highlighted at employment event

Mon, 06 Nov 2023

Professional people will share insights about their career journeys at an employment event in Douglas this week.
The Department of Education, Sport and Culture’s flagship employment and skills fair will be held at the Villa Marina on Thursday 9 November.

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.

Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, Julie Edge MHK, said: ‘Understanding the diverse paths people take in their careers is crucial for our young people. Employment and Skills 2023, along with the #learningforlife social media campaign, is a great opportunity to play a part in helping guide future generations as they enter the world of work.’

‘This focus on skills and career journeys is integral to preparing our youth for a rapidly evolving job market. By sharing real stories, we hope to inspire the next generation, illustrating that success comes in many forms and through various paths.’
