Careers events in Kirklees

Are you a young person considering your next steps after exams?

We have some useful careers events coming up across the region. Considering what to do after your exams is never easy, even if you have an idea of what you might be interested in.

Events are a useful way of gathering information. You get chance to speak directly with career professionals, training providers and careers advisers. It might help you discover a pathway you didn’t know about, or give you chance to answer some questions.

Why attend a careers event?

• Get new ideas for jobs and training
• Meet career professionals who can help
• Talk to people within careers you might consider
• Ask questions about possible roles and training
• Meet other young people also in your shoes

The end of summer and start of autumn is a busy time for careers events. Take a look at these upcoming events and find out how to attend:
