Jobs & Careers Advice Fair To Be Held In Donegal

A Jobs and Career Advice Fair has been announced by the Department of Social Protection (DSP) and the Donegal Local Development Company (DLDC).

The Fair will be held in the Abbey Hotel in Donegal Town on Thursday 07 April and is free to all.

The 'Jobs & Career Advice Fair' will provide jobseekers the opportunity to connect with employers offering full and part time positions. There will also be an opportunity to explore new careers with information on a wide range of upskilling initiatives and training. The event will also be of interest to anyone who is interested in progressing on to further study.

Jim McGuinness, (Former Manager to Donegal GAA Senior Football Team), offered his support to the initiative: "I see it as a great opportunity for people to source employment and see what's on offer for their future career.The benefits of positive thinking are well documented. A 'can-do' attitude is the way forward. One of the secrets of achieving your goals is to recognise that it is going to be challenging. The truth is that if you believe you can, you probably can—you just need a plan and be prepared for some hard work along the way. The Jobs & Career Advice Fair 2016 is a great opportunity to start your plan. "

Declan Doherty, Employer Engagement Manager for Donegal, also said:"Finding the right job or career can be an exciting and challenging task. The Fair promises to be a very useful day for adults interested in returning to work or education, and to offer pathways for people living in South Donegal. We are delighted to be jointly hosting this event with the DLDC."

A range of employers, education, training and support providers will be available on the day at the one-stop-shop 'Jobs & Career Advice Fair', to give advice and guidance. Information will be available on current job vacancies along with representatives from the EURES Cross Border Partnership who will provide jobseekers with details of job opportunities, both cross border and in the wider European labour market.
