There’s less than 24 hours to go before the doors open at the gradireland Graduate Careers Fair 2014, Ireland’s largest careers fair. Doors open at 11am tomorrow at the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin 4.

With over 120 exhibitors, the 2014 gradireland Graduate Careers fair is a must-attend event, whether you’re seeking a job or are interested in further study. With over 120 exhibitors waiting to talk to you, the fair offers a unique opportunity for you to meet with employers and course providers and gain unique insider knowledge.

We also have a host of informative, engaging seminars throughout the day, designed to aid you in areas such as; creating the right job application, how to stand out in interviews, how to succeeed in assessment centres, or how to study in the USA, to name but a few. Find out what’s on here.

There is currently massive growth in the graduate recruitment sector, and there will be more than 3,000 jobs available on the day at the gradireland Graduate Careers Fair.

Mark Mitchell, gradireland publisher, says: “The ­rebound in graduate employment can be seen in the amount of companies seeking to take on new graduates.

“In 2009, over 40pc of firms surveyed were not ­interested in hiring graduates,” he said.

But Mr Mitchell says this figure has now plummeted to just 5pc.

“In 2011, almost half (47pc) of companies surveyed said that they were recruiting fewer or no graduates because of the economic climate. That figure now stands at just 7.4pc. So, we would urge graduates, and other jobseekers, to come down to the RDS tomorrow and see what recruiters are looking for. With seminars and a Cv Clinic, and all for free, there really is something for everyone on the day.”
