    Okay, the idea here is that as Graduates we all use different sources to help us on our way to employment of whatever else that may be of use.

    There is a Postgraduate forum for those hoping to continue their studies so that discussion is not really relevant here, except perhaps in the context of continued education while working...! Assisted learning and all that jazz!

    So, if we list the resources, job sites, useful places online, career guidance, grad programmes etc and put them all into this sticky we should hopefully come up with a useful resource list!!

    Starting with the obvious:

    I think it is worthy to note that when job hunting, if not going the Graduate Programme way to regularly check websites such as these as they get updated on a daily basis.

    If anyone has a comprehensive list of Graduate Programmes, BOI / KPMG / PWC / Google etc and the deadline dates etc, include them here. If not, I'll set about making one!

    Found this while job searching myself

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 99 ✭✭✭ Oakbark has got a Graduate section full of the latest job offers.

    Remember, most reputable job sites have a 'Graduate' section nowadays - not always immediately clear, but it's there. You can also enter 'Graduate' as your search word to bring up any graduate jobs.

    Also, check out the university and college websites - most have a Careers Section (i.e: NUI Galway) with a Vacancies Database or weekly/fortnightly/monthly newsletter. Google the college name plus 'careers' to find more.

    Hi guys

    Just to let you know if you want to meet some of the grad employers face to face we are holding a careers fair next tue in the RDS. Starts at 11 and finishes at 5 and is free entry.

    If you register on you can skip the queue.

    Also, just to let you know that most of the University careers services have job boards that are pretty good - especially if you are looking for jobs in regional areas or for jobs in smaller companies that wouldn’t normally be advertised - though most of the jobs also will appear on as well as we are linked to most of the services.

    Also just to let you know that we are re-launching in the next couple of weeks. There will be some new features like insider reports (recent grads will be able to write about their experiences), recruiter tips (companies will be able to provide tips on the interview process etc) and there will be a forum there too... and it will look a whole lot better!!

    Good luck with your job hunting!

    I've been trawling through jobs sites recently looking for work and have found the best by far to be Its a new site and seems to have more graduate positions than most of the others and I heard a representative of theirs on Newstalk a few weeks back and he seemed to know his stuff, as well as only being 25 or something. Anyway worth a look...

    Not a resource exactly but Dropbox in Dublin are taking people on for their "Associate Program" No minimum experience required, you do need a degree from a "top tier university" which I assume basically means Trinity and UCD. They'll take you on a trip to their HQ in the states as part of it, then you work in the program for a while and then move on to either their User Ops Team (fancy name for their customer support) or their Sales & Account Management Team.

    The full details are here:
    in case anyone's interested.
