You've probably done that.
Typing up your CV (also known as the resume) and send it to ALL companies you know are hiring.
Is this right?
Well, there are lots of methods when it comes to job hunting. Sending CV via online is great, but wouldn't it be better if you're able to meet, network and engage with your potential recruiters in person? Go to a career fair!
PS: Don't forget international students like you in Ireland have one-year work visa after graduation - so do make full use of it!
And that's why we compile top 5 job fairs you should watch out for:
Then attend their career fairs held throughout the year! Just to name a few:
- gradireland graduate careers fair
- GRADchances STEM fair
- GRADchances Language fair
- gradireland summer fair

If you wish to attend a job fair and you have a strong interest in startups and entrepreneur culture, Upstarter event is the place for you.
It is so far the only startup and tech jobs fair in Ireland!

4. Campus job fair
Depending on which college you attend in Ireland, most colleges would organise job fair in the campus for students. Make sure to pop by your college career development office before the fair for a quick CV check!
Campus career fair is a great opportunity for students, as the companies are already aware of your college. Just make sure to dress in a business casual manner to strike that first impression!
5. Corporate networking events
Most students freaked out a bit when its comes to attending networking events in companies. Don't worry! It's actually a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the company.
- Culture - the way of doing things here. Casual? formal?
- Meet the staff and talk to them - do they enjoy working there?
- Introduce yourself to the recruiter - what qualities are they looking for?
- Meet new friends!
That's all folks!
