Careers Fair Putting Best Foot Forward


At a time when the media is full of bad news on the jobs market, Institute of Technology Sligo is leading the way as it forges ahead with the annual Careers Fair on Wednesday 21 January from 10.30am – 2.30pm. Remarkably, the number of companies and organisations is nearly the same as last year, a considerable achievement in the light of the cancellation of other national careers fairs. The annual IT Sligo Careers Fair is the biggest in the North West.

There are some key new features at this year’s Careers Fair. For the first time ever, there will be a CAO help desk where students will be helped through the CAO application process. UK college expert Deborah Seddon will also be on hand to help with late applications to UCAS’.

Consultants will give advice on CVs and interview techniques for those who are looking for a career change, starting out or looking to return to work. IT Sligo Admissions Office and Life Long Learning staff will give advice advice on choosing the best course of study for students of all ages and experience. Information will be also available on a range of research opportunities at IT Sligo.

The IT Sligo Careers Fair runs on Wednesday 21 January from 10.30am to 2.30pm. The event will be opened by Professor Terri Scott, President IT Sligo and will be attended by the Mayor of Sligo Cllr Veronica Cawley.
