Launch students careers at Careers Expo

WA's only complete careers, training and employment expo returns in mid-May 2022 with even more inspiration on careers, tertiary education and vocational training. Alongside the usual huge array of local and interstate tertiary colleges, universities, training organisations and industry associations you’ll find the VET Expo showcasing apprenticeship and traineeship opportunities. Careers Expo 2022 + VET Expo will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre - and entry is free.
