ICV takes a stand at the SpotJobs Melbourne Career Expo 2018
The Islamic Council of Victoria will host a stand at the SpotJobs Melbourne Career Expo, held on Friday, July 20 – Sunday, July 22 2018 at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre, Southwharf.
ICV will showcase its programs in the youth employment and careers spaces and provide participants with resources and workshops. The stand hopes to provide an opportunity for young Muslims to discuss employment fields and pathways to access industries they are interested in.
Despite higher education averages amongst the Muslim community, only 54 per cent of 25–44 year-old Muslim Australians were employed according to the 2011 Census figures, compared to 78.4 per cent of the general population.
ICV’s presence at the 17th annual event, which attracts more than 16,000 budding career changers, graduates, school leavers and mature-aged students, aims to empower Muslim youths with knowledge, advice and skills to pursue careers they are passionate about and equip them with the right advice from the right industry professionals.
