Missed the gradireland Graduate Careers Fair? Don’t miss the seminars!Posted: October 26, 2012
The recent gradireland Graduate Careers Fair in the RDS was a great opportunity to meet potential employers and careers advisers, and to get the best possible advice and direction on how to launch your graduate career. Over 6,600 students and graduates took this opportunity, making it Ireland’s largest graduate careers event of the year.
However, if you missed out on the day itself, you can still catch up on the specialist careers seminars that took place during the fair. Many of the presentations are available for download from the fair website. Several of the seminars were also captured by gradireland TV.
There is often nothing better for getting the inside track on your desired career than hearing from some of the most significant employers or professional bodies in that sector – so we captured a whole ‘How to get hired’ series of presentations in sectors including retail, IT, marketing, finance and management consulting as well as seminars on entrepreneurialism and an overview on internships and work experience.
The first of these specialist seminars, specifically targeted at undergrads and recent graduates – How to get hired in IT, given by Tom Bentley from SAP – is now live on gradireland TV. There is also a useful overview on internships and work experience, relevant to all students and jobseekers, which not only provides advice on how to get the best from any such placement but also provides a host of useful links for further information and potential opportunities.
gradireland TV hosts over 50 specialist graduate careers videos, ranging from employer insights and graduate profiles for companies in specific sectors through to superb insights on CVs, applications, getting ‘socially networked’ and more. So if you missed the gradireland Graduate Careers Fair you don’t have to miss out on the seminars!
