Why should you attend gradireland Live?

Maybe you got an email from us or got told by a friend to get a ticket… either way you’ve registered for gradireland Live, but perhaps aren’t sure what it is and what you’ve signed up for.

Rest easy, we’re here to explain what’s happening on the day and how to make the most of it!

The day itself is all about taking time for yourself to invest in your future, for free!

Meet top employers looking to recruit people like YOU plus postgrad providers from Ireland and abroad!

gradireland Live is all about meeting the graduate recruiters from the companies you want to work for and getting the inside track on their internships and graduate programmes.

Yes, we live in a digital world and information is constantly accessible through our phones and laptops, but face-to-face conversation and interaction shouldn’t be undervalued.

Having a chat with a recruiter from one of the employers attending on the day can give you a real insight into the company’s culture, values and opportunities.  You may even find an employer you had never considered has the type of graduate opportunities you are looking for…. So, keep an open mind and you may well be pleasantly surprised.

Plus, if you are thinking of doing a masters we will have a range of postgrad providers from Ireland and abroad ready to chat to you about their course offerings.

You can see the full list of exhibitors here….

Attend one of our gradireland Talks!

Direction and inspiration… yes they sound like buzz words especially in January when everywhere you turn there seems to be another ad or feature on becoming the best version of yourself.

But, our main stage talks this year have been specially curated to help build your confidence and motivation.

We’ll be discussing how to pursue your passion with Niamh Cullen, Ailbhe Keane and Philly McMahon to find out how they achieved their success; the challenges they faced along the way and what they think you need to become successful.

We also have recruitment professionals from Jameson, KPMG, Grant Thornton and Arthur Cox who will be giving their expert advice on navigating your future career path.

Success can mean different things for different people. Some are driven by monetary success and others personal fulfilment. Our panel discussion in partnership with PwC Ireland will highlight how our range of speakers developed their own meaningful career paths. Chaired by John Slattery from Inspo and featuring James Kavanagh, Deborah Somorin and Liam Rushe, this talk is a must for anyone unsure of what path is best suited to them.
