Commencing in August 2020 this annual expo is recognised as a comprehensive First Nations Careers Expo in the Bundaberg & Gladstone region with the focus on Employment and Training opportunities for our mob.

Dorrie Day experienced excitement and commitment in 2023, with an enthusiastic turnout of First Nations job seekers and students from various Bundaberg and Gladstone regions. The event attracted 2000 attendees and hosted over 100 exhibitors, offering plenty of employment opportunities and meaningful conversations.

PCCC would like to build the capacity of communities to ensure that underserved Indigenous communities have the best opportunity, skills, and knowledge to successfully pursue the education and training that will enable them to achieve their career and life goals. We will work towards a future where all First Nations peoples are empowered and equipped with the education and training needed to succeed in a diverse and global society. PCCC acknowledges the value of a community event that will showcase First Nations roles within the local community while supporting the attendees with support of what they need to achieve to obtain these roles.
