The Career Expo for Central Alberta is a one day event where professionals in various trades, occupations and professions will demonstrate and explain a variety of careers and provide attendees with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in that career. Over 200 different careers will be showcased, including Trades and Health careers. Attendees will participate in tours, visual presentations, and hands-on demonstrations and activities that will provide them with a broad understanding about various career opportunities. Youth will match their interests and skills with careers that they not even have known existed before the event!
