1. Face to face interaction with leading employers

This is your chance to make a great first impression with a broad range of Ireland’s top employers, who are all actively recruiting students, graduates and young professionals across a whole range of disciplines.

Before the event, make sure you look at the exhibitor list and organisational profiles on the gradireland events page , make a note of exhibitors you would like to meet and questions you would like to ask them.

Many exhibitors have recent graduate hires available to talk to you at their stands, so ask them what working life is really like in that company or sector.

2. Access exclusive live seminars sessions with the latest recruitment advice

Each year we strive to provide you with informative seminars and panel discussions from early careers professionals. Our expert speakers have a wealth of useful information that they are happy to impart of students and graduates. They are also more than happy to take your questions!

Whether it’s advice about writing the perfect CV or cover letter, employability skills or top interview tips and hints, we have something for you.

Make sure you attend one or more of the specialist careers seminars – they are designed to give you the winning edge when it comes to applications and interviews!

3. Get your CV reviewed and ready for job applications at the CV Clinic

So, you have had a list of employers that you may be interested in applying to put together. Now you have to create the perfect CV and cover letter to illustrate all your experience and skills.

gradireland careers fairs host a CV clinic, providing hours of expert advice from careers service professionals – but make sure you bring a printed copy of your CV with you and get there early on the day to secure your spot, as the CV clinic always books out really quickly.

4. Check out hundreds of open roles, graduate programmes and internships

We put up a large job wall at our careers fairs. Browse the live graduate programmes and opportunities listed, use your phone to scan the QR Code of any that you are interested in applying to, save the job to your gradireland dashboard and start submitting applications!

5. Find career advice, information on jobs, graduate programmes and courses

You won’t find careers events with as many employers or course providers all under one roof. On the day, you can find information on graduate programmes, internships, or postgraduate courses, but you might not get to meet all exhibitors. So, be smart with your time - check out the floor plan and meet all the key people or organisations that are of interest to you!

gradireland careers fairs are completely free to attend for the public. Students and graduates can register for free entry through our events page . You can also keep an eye on the page for upcoming events from our careers fairs (which are typically held in October and March) to the Undergraduate of the Year Awards .
