For many of the thousands of students studying in Ireland, 36,500 in Dublin alone, leaving full-time education for the working world can be a daunting prospect.
Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be. The gradireland Graduate Careers Fair takes place in less than a week’s time on 5th October, and showcases a wide variety of potential employment opportunities and graduate schemes.
There will be exhibitions put on by over 100 major employers, including Deloitte, Aldi, Bank of Ireland and Aer Lingus, as well as non profit organisations such as the Peter McVerry Trust and Oxfam Ireland, each presenting their graduate and internship availabilities. Some companies will be conducting interviews on the day.
A statement from Guinness owner Diageo, one of the firms taking part in the event, says that their graduate programme is “designed to challenge and inspire graduates to reach their full potential.”
The event will also play host to a number of esteemed guest speakers, holding seminars on subjects such as interview techniques, as well as specific career paths, including law, finance and teaching. There is even a dedicated CV clinic to help job applicants get the edge on the competition.
The fair will take place from 11am until 5pm at Simmonscourt, RDS, Dublin.
