Speed Careering

Speed Careering is a dynamic and engaging event designed to provide students with up-to-date and firsthand information about a broad range of potential future career options. The event is designed to broaden students minds as to the possibilities for future employment.

During the event a diverse range of businesses provide a snapshot of their industry and career path, to small groups of students, on a rotational basis – it is run in a ‘Speed Dating’ format, but with a career focus.

Speed Careering events is often conducted within the school or online or a combination of both.  The event can be designed to provide breadth of knowledge of local career pathway opportunities or could be more specific and tailored towards a learning area, industry sector or career pathway.

Business representatives may get involved directly with the school or virtually through eBeacon.

eBeacon’s member section provides many tools and resources to conduct a Speed Careering event.

‘I can now see more things that could be in my future, and that one day I might be able to find something that I enjoy.’
