Inzone Careers Kiosks coming soon to secondary schools and district libraries

Mayors Taskforce for Jobs (MTFJ) Tararua has sponsored 4 Inzone Careers Kiosk to be placed into our local secondary schools and district libraries for the next 12 months, to support youth and jobseekers in the district explore career paths and training opportunities.

Inzone’s high-tech Careers Kiosk provides New Zealand schools with up-to-date career information and a fantastic multi-media view of careers as well as study and training opportunities for a wide range of industries. From Creative jobs to transport and logistics, as well as armed forces to caring roles. Younger students also have a unique opportunity to find a career they can be passionate about.

Students will be offered the opportunity to create compelling documentary clips for local employers. The documentary clips give an honest depiction of life studying or working with this local employer and will be uploaded into the kiosk to provide local content with a diverse range of people, stories, careers and industries that students can watch, learn and be inspired from.

According to Tararua District Council Mayor Tracey Collis: “MTFJ is now coming to the end of its second year. Last financial year we were successful in providing full time work to 73 young people and we are on track to match this number again. These Career Kiosks offer an opportunity for our young people and the wider community to identify a career or training path to a career, they are passionate about and help to provide guidance for school leavers who are undecided on their next step in life.”

The first Career Kiosks will be installed at Tararua College and Woodville Library on 7 April, and at Dannevirke High School and Totara Collage on 8 April in preparation for term two. After 6 months the kiosks placed at Totara College & Woodville Library will rotate to Te Kura Kaupapa o Tamaki-nui-a-rua and the Dannevirke Library.

Fontayne Chase, MTFJ Coordinator says: “The Careers Kiosk is another fantastic initiative aimed at inspiring Rangatahi to explore their passions and identify career paths. The kiosks will also encourage connections to local employers, with school students having the unique opportunity to create digital content of local industries that will be uploaded into the kiosks and made available to other kiosks located outside our district as well.”
