National Careers Service virtual careers fair
By Sarah Wood
Whether you are thinking about changing career, or taking your first steps into a new career, the National Careers Service has brought together speakers and resources for a virtual careers fair to showcase opportunities in different sectors, and help you figure out your next move.
The online event takes place on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th January and is free to join.
It will give you the opportunity to hear from people doing a range of jobs and learn more about what to expect from different industries with a mix of live and pre-recorded content and resources.
The schedule includes speakers from organisations, such as BT and the NHS, talking about their current opportunities and holding Q&A sessions giving first-hand industry insight. The event will also have qualified National Careers Service advisers on hand to provide advice and guidance.
The event is split into two days:
Day 1 (27th Jan) - Exhibition day - A chance to hear from organisations about their opportunities, and hear the experiences of people doing the jobs; what to expect, what skills you need, and routes in.
Day 2 (28th Jan) 10am-1pm - Virtual jobs fair for the South West and Oxfordshire region.

Jobs, apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities from across the region will be posted on the local Facebook and Twitter channels in the #JobsHour session: 12pm-1pm - #JobsHour for Bath, Bristol and Gloucestershire.
Local careers advisers will be running two free webinars to help people boost their job searching skills and write winning applications:
10am-11am - How to write a winning application. Register here for your free place
11am-12pm - Effective job searching. Register here for your free place.
Maninder Hayre, head of delivery for the National Careers Service in the South West and Oxfordshire, said: "January is the time of year when people start to reflect and make plans and is perhaps a time of year that they need advice and guidance most of all. With the impact that Covid-19 has had, it is even more important that people hear from employers and learning institutions about the opportunities they offer."
