Cecilia McGuinness, Atlanta McGloin, Marie Casserly (Mayor of Sligo), Maria Taylor and Mary Finan at the launch of the North West IGC Career Fest.
The inaugural North West IGC Careers Fair, which has been organised by Sligo/Longford members of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors, will take place in IT Sligo on Thursday, May 11 from 9.30am until 3pm.
There will be exhibitors from the higher education sector, industry, state organisations and the voluntary sector.
The event hopes to provide a platform locally for students from the region to meet with colleges, training bodies, and local businesses. They will also experience visiting a third level institution and have the opportunity to attend brief lectures/talks.
All information about the event can be found on: www.northwestcareerfest.com
There are two sessions; 9.30am to 12pm or 12.30pm to 3pm.
This is a unique opportunity for students in the region to meet with successful employers and find out about career opportunities. This will be supported with information provided by a wide selection of third level institutions.
This is a non-profit event and it is hoped it will become firmly established on school calendars on an annual basis.
