Jobs Expo Cork will be returning to Clayton Hotel Silver Springs in Tivoli today and will feature a wide range of job opportunities, seminars and free career advice for jobs-seekers in Cork and surrounding counties.
Jobs Expo attracted large crowds at it's last Cork jobs fair earlier this year in June. Organisers expect today's event to be very busy with large numbers having pre-registered for the event.
Exhibitors recruiting at the event come from a variety of sectors including technology, pharmaceutical, customer service, education, emergency services, healthcare, investment and retail.
Both Irish and multinational companies are taking part in Jobs Expo Cork. Exhibitors include the National Ambulance Service, PhoneWatch, Laya Healthcare, Aspira, Sanofi and BNY Mellon. The Government of the Isle of Man will also be there today, highlighting the variety of career opportunities on the Island.
In addition to companies recruiting at the event, there will be a series of talks from jobs and careers experts at Jobs Expo’s 'Seminar Zone'. Speakers include the National Ambulance Service who will talk about career opportunities in the Emergency Services, Geoff Brown of Hourglass Education who will discuss common misconception about teaching in the UK and US Immigration Attorney, Caro Kinsella who will explain how getting a working visa to the States is not as hard as you might think.
Furthermore, jobseekers will be able to meet one-on-one with career development coaches. The coaches will offer expert professional development advice to help jobseekers land their dream job. The Career Clinic is free of charge to all attendees.
Exhibition Organiser, Kevin Branigan of Careers Unlimited says, "Jobs Expo Cork has opportunities for graduates, school leavers, highly skilled and unemployed people, as well as anyone thinking of changing careers or upskilling. Today's jobs fair will be our busiest to date in Cork and we're looking to a very successful day of putting skilled professionals directly in contact wth employers from Cork and further afield."
