Welcome to the 2019–2020 edition of Opportunities 4 U, a guide to some of the career opportunities for UL graduates.
This publication provides information on many organisations targeting UL students for recruitment in 2019. It is also a
guide to the UL Careers Fair, with profiles of the employers who have booked to attend this major event, which will be held
on campus on Thursday, October 3rd 2019 in the UL Sport Arena.

The good news is that graduate recruitment is increasing across most disciplines. Getting your first job can be challenging
but the Irish recruitment market for today’s graduate is buoyant and competitive. We have seen continued improvement
in the graduate employment statistics in recent years. Recent research confirms that relevant work experience is just
as important as academic results when it comes to employers short-listing for interviews. Formal work placements and
internships contribute significantly to the employability skill set valued by employers.

UL graduates can be found in all sectors of the economy and have earned a very good reputation among employers. The
annual Graduate Outcomes Survey 2018 shows that the employment record of UL graduates is 8 per cent higher than the
national average.

If you want to maximise your chances of success, you need to start now and adopt a positive and proactive approach
to the job search. Don’t expect to see your ideal job advertised: take control of your future and contact prospective
employers yourself. This will set you apart from other graduates and it will show your initiative and enthusiasm, qualities
highly rated by employers.

The UL Careers Service, part of the Cooperative Education & Careers Division, organises a full programme of careers
events during your final year to help you make a successful transition into the world of work. Details of all the careers
advisory services available to students can be found on the Careers Website at: www.ul.ie/careers. We encourage you
to use these career resources, polish your job-hunting skills, and make the most of your opportunities during the coming
year. You can arrange to meet with a Careers Adviser any time you would like to discuss your options.

Opportunities 4 U focuses specifically on employment opportunities. The employers in this publication are those who
plan their recruitment campaign in advance – these are the minority. Many employers advertise positions only when they
become available. Ensure that you don’t miss out: register on CareersConnect at www.careersconnect.ul.ie to receive email
alerts of vacancies throughout the year.

I hope you find this publication a useful resource as you make the transition from education to employment.

however, recruit on a year-round basis, and we continue
to organise presentations in the spring semester.

What to expect at presentations
Details of all presentations are available on
CareersConnect. The format varies, but usually includes
a presentation by the company, followed by a question
and answer session. Many companies bring recent
graduates to speak about their own experiences. In some
cases, the presentations are followed by a reception that
allows students to mingle with company representatives.
The duration of the presentations varies, but most
are over within one hour. Most of these presentations
are quite informal, but some employers, particularly
accounting firms, use the presentations as an integral
part of their selection procedure, and issue invitations
to selected candidates. In these cases, it is advisable to
treat the presentation almost like an interview, and dress

In addition to the employer presentations, some
employers set up stands on campus for a few hours
during the day. They use this opportunity to meet
informally with students and hand out company
information. These are usually located in or beside the
Red Raisin restaurant in the main campus building and in
the KBS reception area. Details are posted in the Events
section of the website and are also available to search on
