Free Careers Program

Are you thinking about your career, or not sure if you want a career or where you’d like it to go?

Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) has teamed with project partners and community supporters to provide a free local career guidance program for young Tablelanders (15–24 years).

‘This is a great opportunity for young people who are ready to transition into the workforce, change careers or be better prepared to secure employment,’ said Deputy Mayor Kevin Cardew.

‘The program has three stages and we are preparing to launch stage 2 in the coming weeks.

‘Throughout November we will be offering free Career Readiness Workshops in Atherton, Malanda and Ravenshoe.

‘Participants will take part in practical activities, and receive advice and support on resume preparation, job search, interview skills, employability skills development, workplace culture and rights, regional job opportunities and the benefits of networking and volunteering.

‘The workshops will be run from 9.00am to 2.30pm over four days of the month at the different locations, and participants need to attend all sessions.

‘Numbers are limited so book at by Monday 24 October for the four-session program.

‘Our 1hr one-on-one career development and exploration sessions with our Career Guidance and Support Advisor are still underway and you can book in for a free session until the end of October.

‘Find out more and register at if you’d like to try practical activities and discover tools to help make informed decisions about career interests and pathway preferences,’ Deputy Mayor Cardew said.

This project is funded by the Australian Government’s National Careers Institute (NCI) Partnerships Grant, in which Tablelands Regional Council was one of nine projects selected Australia wide.
