This week has been an eventful week on the job front, with a truck load of job announcements. Before I go into the announcements, let me tell you how I find out about them, it might help you in your own job search!
The bulk of large scale job announcements are coming from FDI , Foreign Direct Investment. This is managed via the IDA, some history here. Check out the newsroom or subscribe to their monthly Ezine . The best place I found to get an overview of all job announcements in Ireland is on the Irish National Organisations of the unemployed, the INOU, on their jobswatch page. Also check out the client jobs on the Enterprise Ireland website.
Some companies will recruit directly, others will use recruitment agencies, or job search engines, but it all starts where the jobs are created, and the closer you can get to the source, the better 😎 .
To not hold you any longer in suspense.. drum roll…. here they come !
