Job seekers of any age are meeting employers face-to-face, learning about existing opportunities and the job they want, at a Jobs Fair being held in Albury today.

Organised by the Australian Government, the event is one of dozens being held Australia-wide in 2022, outlining local jobs in demand as well as assistance with updating a resume, job interview practice tips and more.

Local Farrer MP Sussan Ley said employers and job seekers in Albury-Wodonga had shown great resilience during the pandemic and this event is perfectly timed for people wanting a path to new opportunities.

“And those opportunities are very diverse, with Albury-Wodonga a major retail, commercial, administrative and cultural centre on the border, boasting an economy headed by manufacturing, construction, transport and logistics, as well as health and hospitality.”

Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business Stuart Robert said the local Goulburn-Murray Employment Region is an employment hub for several unique industries.

“Whether it’s viticulture, cheese making or tourism, there is a diverse economy in this region and an abundance of job types to go with it.”

Assistant Minister for Youth and Employment Services, the Hon Luke Howarth MP, said ‘we want to help as many people from this region as possible to find work and improve their prospects, through upskilling or reskilling – job fairs are proving to be highly effective in helping achieve this goal’.
