The Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty, T.D., attended the Intreo Careers Fair in Dublin Castle last Thursday, March 28, where hundreds of exciting job vacancies were on offer across a range of sectors.
There were over 50 Exhibitors showcased at the event and it is estimated that over 2600 jobseekers attended. CenterParcs Longford Forest were exhibiting at the event, with positions available across a range of activities within the new Forest centre.
The Careers fair is part of National Jobs Week, organised by the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection, and took place throughout the week from March 25 to 29 March, with hundreds of employers and training providers involved and with job opportunities showcasing at over 80 events around the country.
Speaking at the event, Minister Doherty said: “This year’s Intreo Careers Fair is our fourth such event and builds on the success of previous years by bringing employers and jobseekers together and matching them together for the benefit of both. This year, once more, we have employers who are offering job opportunities for a wide range of skills and qualification levels from multiple sectors.
“Whether someone has an interest in construction, food, tourism, healthcare, education, retail, finance, IT or the creative industries there is an opportunity to be found during JobsWeek 2019. The events always generate great energy and enthusiasm among everyone who attends but more importantly they highlight the scale of opportunities available within our growing economy.”
The event included CV workshops as well as informative JobsIreland seminars which were live streamed for those who could not attend. There were presentations and discussions on How to Excel at Interviews, Using Social Media to get a Job, re-Entering the Jobs Market, Start your own Business and many others.
These seminars and presentations were also streamed online, so that jobseekers anywhere can virtually ‘attend’ from their PC, laptop or mobile and listen in on these talks from an excellent line up of Industry professionals.
