DESC Careers Information, Advice and Guidance Service

You may have a fixed idea about what you would like to do in the future or no ideas at all. Employment and Skills 2019 is an opportunity to explore different industries, types of jobs and pathways into employment and find out about transferable employabillity skills.

You will have the chance to talk to many friendly, professional people from industry, who want to help you to understand different types of careers.

The purpose of the event is to:

  • use employer expertise to help you further research two sectors of your choice.
  • find out about at least one sector that you hadn’t thought about before (your Wild Card).
  • understand more about the ‘transferable skills’ that employers look for.

You will do some preparation in school before you attend the event and follow up afterwards but on the day your main focus should be to find out as much as you can about from employers about different types of jobs, qualifications and skills.
