School students from around Logan descended on the Logan Entertainment Centre last month for the IGNITE Youth Careers Expo.
A selection of Queensland universities, apprentice training groups, and industry associations were among the 49 different exhibitors giving the young adults ideas and directions for their future careers.
“Employment pathways are different for everyone which is why IGNITE is fantastic at highlighting the many career and study options available to students and jobseekers,” Cr Teresa Lane said.
The expo featured three zones – creative, beauty and cookery – where attendees got involved with hands-on activities including podcasting, coffee making and fashion designing.
“There’s was a chance to explore a range of career paths whether a local school student, a recent school leaver or a young graduate, IGNITE was a great opportunity to explore the career opportunities on offer,” said Cr Tony Hall.
