If you've been thinking about what's next, a step up, or you've got a teenager who's contemplating their future, make sure you head down to the Canvas Tauranga Careers Showcase this Friday and Saturday.
Industry experts from the Bay's largest tertiary provider, Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology (formerly Bay of Plenty Polytechnic and Waiariki Institute of Technology) will be on hand from across a range of areas to discuss careers in automotive, business, forestry, health, marine studies, sport and recreation, and loads more.
Whether you're looking for part-time, full-time, flexi-learn, certificate, diploma or degree and post-graduate study, Toi Ohomai has an option to suit everyone.
Get interactive with free manicures and massage from the beauty students, test your fitness with the sport and recreation team, have a go at chopping down a tree on the forestry simulator and enjoy live music from the music students.
Toi Ohomai event coordinator, Nikki Hansen, says Canvas is the region's largest career expo and is a great way to meet industry and tertiary leaders from around the country before you take that next stage in your learning journey.
“Getting one-on-one time with tertiary providers is so important in helping people make the right choice. Our staff are here to help answer questions, provide information, but also to inspire and get people excited about their next step.”
Entry is free so make sure you pop into the Canvas showcase at ASB Arena – it's the perfect opportunity for the young and the not so young to explore career options.
