The Gold Coast Careers Festival took place from 6 - 8 May at Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. This is one of the largest events of its kind in Queensland and we proudly took our position to be part of this wonderful event. As always, it attracted thousands of visitors, amongst them; high school students, parents, career changers and job seekers.
The Careers Festival gives access to a diverse collective of educators and employers, through an informative, interactive and engaging experience. Our stand number 8 was very busy, we had the pleasure of talking to many interested people of all ages. We had three different water samples on display and gave the public the opportunity to test them for salinity and nutrients. This was a very interesting and fun exercise that gave people an idea of how we use water sampling to help restore damaged ecosystems.
We were proud to show locals what we are teaching our students and how we support our community of caretakers not only through information, but through practical action as well.
Daria Sobczak, an Environmental Consultant with Envirotech stated, "Many people are interested in marine studies. I was pleasantly surprised at how many young people are concerned about the health of our marine life and how pro-active they want to be. Even people who weren’t into Marine were impressed with the courses we offer and expressed gratitude that we have developed such important qualifications. Again, all of these people are super passionate. I think the marine industry brings like-minded people together. They also loved the little water testing activity we had there. Many people come to the stand wanting to complete our FREE short intro Marine course and asking for emails to be sent with more details about these exclusive courses”.
There was plenty of interest in learning more about possible career pathways. "Our stand was always buzzing with activity. We were also lucky enough to be chosen to do a short interview with Study Gold Coast, the host of the expo. People from other booths were coming to us and asking what we were selling because we had so many people waiting to talk to us! Our course, developed by our trainers, is a unique and important product", said Daria.
