A little bit about what’s happening at this October’s Jobs Expo
Jobs Expo Dublin, the city’s leading employment and recruitment fair, returns to Croke Park on 22 October 2016.
This October’s Jobs Expo features a range of Irish and multinational companies actively recruiting at the event. Exhibitors include Volkswagen Group Ireland, luxury US cruise line Seabourn, the National Ambulance Service, Citywest Hotel, the Government of the Isle of Man and BCS Sales Recruitment, the specialist recruitment firm who are the main sponsors and organisers of Jobs Expo.
The Education Village
Jobs Expo Dublin will also include two dedicated areas – the Education Village and the STEM Sector. The Education Village will host a number of education recruitment agencies looking to fill teacher posts around the world. Exhibitors include UK teacher specialists, Hourglass Education; New Zealand’s Education Personnel; international recruiters World Teachers and SeekTeachers; and Sussex’s highly regarded Oriel High School.
The STEM Sector
Career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and medicine are the focus of Jobs Expo’s STEM Sector. Here you’ll find some of the most prestigious international and national STEM employers. Exhibitors taking part include Boston Scientific, B/E Aerospace, Alkermes, VWR International and Adaptive HVM.
“The Education Village and the STEM Sector are a first for Jobs Expo,” says exhibition organiser, Bronagh Cotter of BCS Recruitment. “These are two vibrant areas of the jobs market, with plenty of opportunities in Ireland and abroad.”
“However, in addition to these, we’ve put together a great mix of companies actively seeking candidates. There are companies recruiting from junior to senior management level, so there’s something for everyone.”
The Career Clinic and the Seminar Zone
“The Career Clinic is back with a number of professional development coaches on hand offering free advice to jobseekers,” says Bronagh. “We’re really excited about this Jobs Expo’s Seminar Zone. The National Ambulance Service is sponsoring the Seminar Zone, and they’ll be giving a talk on working in frontline services. There will also be a number of fantastic seminars by industry insiders and experts. Boston Scientific will be talking about advanced technology capabilities and US immigration attorney Caro Kinsella will be discussing how to get a visa to the States.”
Jobseekers are advised to bring plenty of CVs. CVs will also be added to Jobs Expo’s online database connecting jobseekers with employers. Jobseekers should also register their CVs with BCS Sales Recruitment for future career opportunities.
