JOB seekers of all ages will have employment information at their fingertips anywhere, anytime thanks to a new app developed by The Smith Family.

The app, officially launched at Mable Park State High School, collates information on different industries and occupations, including job descriptions, training requirements, training locations and available jobs.

Logan Mayor Pam Parker presented three iPads to The Smith Family on behalf of Logan City Council.

The iPads will be set up at the 2013 and 2014 Logan Youth Expo, where attendees will be able to access the app to search for career opportunities and speak directly to experts in the industry.

"The Smith Family will use these iPads to give more people the opportunity to benefit from the information on this app," she said.

"Choosing a career can be a difficult decision for young people, but having all the information available in an easy-to-use format, will help make it that much easier.

"The Smith Family will work with local schools to take the app straight to Year 10 students, teachers and parents."
