Working Holiday & Recruitment EXPO – 30 and 31 October 2008

The Working Holiday & Recruitment EXPO is in its 8th year. If you are an Australian organisation looking for temporary workers visit the official website here.

IT companies should look to overseas EXPOs for much needed talent

Workingin is an established organiser of overseas EXPOs, helping Australian employers seek the best talent to fill skills shortages. The EXPOs arranged for 2008 are in full flow with events coming up in London and Leeds in UK, Cape Town and Johannesburg. Auckland will be added to the list in 2009. 

With the mining, construction and engineering industries taking up most of the employer exhibition space there seems little room for anyone else (!) but as Jenny Eagle writes, IT companies are being encouraged to partake in the opportunity:
