In September 2018, Skillsroad - in partnership with Apprenticeship Careers Australia (ACA) and the Caravan and Camping Industry Association NSW (CCIA) - brought career opportunities and advice directly to young job seekers at Sydney Showground’s Caravan and Camping Outdoor Lifestyle Expo.
Skillroad’s ‘Careers Campsite’ stand provided on-the-spot interviews for an exciting range job opportunities in the Caravan and Camping industry, free career guidance, and plenty of great prizes and giveaways across the four-day expo.
Youth unemployment rates in the Careers Campsite’s location of Western Sydney are higher than the national average, so Skillsroad and ACA brought their innovative recruitment techniques to the area to provide more than 100 job opportunities to local youth to help kick start their entry into the workforce.
The Careers Campsite event showcased the wide array of meaningful vocational positions that are available to young people in the Western Sydney region through apprenticeships and traineeships.
Over the four days, more than 80 young people brought their resumes down to the Careers Campsite to participate in on-the-spot interviews with the Skillsroad and ACA team, and many of these candidates progressed to second-round interviews for a vast range of apprenticeship and traineeship positions in the local area.
