Collins Mc Nicholas was delighted to participate in the Department of Social Protection Galway Jobs Recruitment and Advice Fair at the Meyrick Hotel, Eyre Square, Galway on Thursday 2 October as part of the National Jobs Week initiative.
The event ran from 10am until 2pm with a huge turnout – estimated at over 800 job seekers. Representatives from a number of local, national and international companies who had job opportunities and seeking suitable candidates were at the Fair.
Employers were on-site to advise job-seekers of new positions and roles vacant in their company – recruiting for various jobs on the day. Companies on the day included Goodman Medical, EA Games, the Connaught Hotel and Curry & Spice, to name but a few.
I was also delighted to be asked to present to attendees on the topic of ‘Labour Market Review – What Employers Want’. Feedback on the presentation was very positive with attendees asking a lot of questions on interviews / CVs and cover letters.
Thanks to all who came & spoke to us on the day. Thanks also to Christopher O’Toole, Technical Recruitment Consultant & Kirby Brennan who helped out on the day.
This was a unique opportunity for jobseekers to meet with employers, to explore current employment prospects and to promote their CV.
Best of all…entrance to the event was free.
We look forward to next year’s return of the event.
