FROM a life at sea to an office-based career - all were on display at a jobs and careers fair in Langholm last Thursday.
The Langholm Initiative and Langholm Academy in collaboration with the Xcel Project hosted the fair for the whole community. Pupils, parents, former pupils and adults were encouraged to attend.
The Initiative's Building a Future for Eskdale, funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland and the Holywood Trust, is tailored to meet an individual's needs and staff were keen to talk to people looking for training, employment or who had an idea for a small business. Judith Johnson, project officer, said: "What a great networking event it was."
