The North West CareerFest took place in IT Sligo on May 9th, attracting a large number of visitors from secondary schools across the region.
Hundreds of students met with exhibitors from the higher education sector, industry, state organisations and the voluntary sector. The event provided a platform locally for students from the region to meet with colleges, training bodies, and local businesses. They also got to experience visiting a third level institution and had the opportunity to attend brief lectures/talks.
This is a unique opportunity for students in the region to meet with successful employers and find out about career opportunities. This was supported with information provided by a wide selection of third level institutions. The event was organised by the Sligo-Longford Branch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors.
