The Brandon Career Symposium is designed to be an opportunity for students and adults to hear from and talk with exhibitors about all the challenges and opportunities in making career choices. During this three day event, you can share your professional experiences of sustaining a career in your displayed profession.
Our objective is to create an environment where youth and adults can visit informative and interactive displays, attend speaker sessions and meet with leading representatives in business and education to discover career and educational paths for ongoing personal growth and development.
The Symposium is intended to make youth and adults aware of the educational and technical skills they would require for future employment. As well, and if at all possible, they are encouraged to pursue their education and enroll in relevant fields. Participants need information about job opportunities and the types of education, skills and experience they require to be competitive in the job market and by representing your organization/business at the Brandon Career Symposium you will provide them with another tool in being successful.
In the past, the Symposium has served to increase awareness among both employers and students. The high level of participation by employers and students suggests a growing interest in issues related to youth and employment.
