Over 80 events are taking place across the country,  including an innovative online jobs fair, as part of #JobsWeek2019.

14,000 jobseekers and 500 employers expected to participate in Jobs Week 2019.

The biggest event will be the Intreo Careers Fair in Dublin Castle this Thursday, March 28. Each day will also feature online interactive Jobs Fairs allowing jobseekers to participate from the comfort of their own home.

This dedicated week of activity provides jobseekers and employers the opportunity to network and connect together and to provide information on the services available to jobseekers and employers from the Department’s Intreo service. 

As well as advertising job vacancies, the events will include one to one CV clinics, interview preparation workshops, seminars, career coaching and recruitment fairs targeted at specific industries.

Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty, TD, said, “Jobs Week offers a great opportunity for jobseekers to meet with employers, exchange advice, and especially, find work. Equally, it provides employers with the opportunity to actively recruit.

"This year’s events include Job Fairs, information sessions for jobseekers on upskilling opportunities and career advice workshops covering CV preparation and interview techniques. It is an opportunity not to be missed by jobseekers looking for work and by employers who are trying to find the most suitable people for their business.”
