Invite us to your Careers Expo

If you are planning a Careers Expo, we can help. Members of our team and student ambassadors (current USQ students) can come to your event to answer questions and chat about options with students, teachers and parents. A Careers Expo is an ideal follow-up to a USQ school presentation, giving students a chance to ask detailed questions and receive advice tailored to their specific needs.
