‘Events like GRADchances IT are vital,’ says graduate who landed Intel job

The team at gradireland are always delighted to hear feedback from students and graduates after our careers events, so you can imagine how happy we were when a student who attended the GRADchances IT got in touch to let our team know that he had landed a job with one of the world’s most influential IT companies.

On the 28th January 2014, Waterford IT student Sohail Muhammad attended the GRADchances IT event in Dublin City Centre. Little did he think that directly because of his participation in this event, he would secure a position as Product Development Engineer with IT giant, Intel.  


During this event, Sohail was given the opportunity to meet with top IT employers, discuss each company’s recruitment process and undertake tasks set by these employers to demonstrate his employability skills. Through these activities, he made the connections and impressions necessary to securing the job he wanted with Intel.

When speaking about GRADchances IT and his role in Intel, Sohail said;’ Intel is a fantastic place to work and it is all thanks to the GRADchances event in Dublin where I met all of you guys and Intel HR – events like this are vital from a graduates point of view’.

This year’s GRADchances IT will take place on Wednesday 27th January in Dublin City Centre. Top IT employers attending this year’s event include First DerivativesGuidewire, Arista Networks, AIG, Smyths Toys and Workday. The event is strictly invite-only, with 100 of the top IT students who register being invited to the event. Register now and for your chance to have an experience like Sohail!
