Albany jobseekers will have a chance to meet with employers and attend free career workshops on Wednesday at the Albany Jobs Fair.

The jobs fair — hosted by the Federal Department of Education, Skills and Employment — will run from 10am-2.30pm on Wednesday at the Albany Entertainment Centre.

Twenty-eight workplaces from a wide range of industries will be exhibiting, including the Australian Electoral Commission, Goodstart Early Learning Albany, Kmart Albany, Mt Barker Chicken, and Silver Chain.

Attendees can speak directly with employers and discuss job openings, so they are encouraged to bring printed or digital copies of their resumes.

Computers and printers will be available for use on the day.

“There will also be a range of services available to help jobseekers on their employment journey, including free 15-minute resume and interview support services along with workshops and presentations on a number of topics,” a Department of Education, Skills and Employment spokesman said.

Four workshops will take place at the Albany Jobs Fair, including presentations from employers, tips and tricks for applying for jobs online, and advice on dressing for interviews.

There will also be a series of “speed interviews” in which jobseekers can meet with several employers in quick succession.

The jobs fair is free but all attendees must register because of COVID-19 regulations.
