Employer Events

The Career Development Centre hosts a number of careers events during the year which are an ideal way for you to promote your job opportunities directly to our students.

These events typically take place from September-November, and January-March to accommodate the student timetable. During the summer months, we will advertise your online event on our Careers Connect portal. 

Academic year 2020/2021 is, of course, going to be different and we’ll be offering new ways for engaging with students in a virtual way.

For more information or to book one of the options below, email our employer engagement team.  

Fairs / Expos

In Semester 1 2020/2021 as there will be very few students on campus we will be hosting a virtual graduate jobs fair where you can meet our final year students from specific disciplines online.  These fairs provide a unique opportunity for organisations to connect with over 4,000 NUI Galway final year and postgraduate students seeking full-time, part-time and internship positions. It is also an excellent opportunity to communicate directly with our best students on what your organisation can offer in terms of a career.

Registration for each event typically opens 2-3 months in advance through Careers Connect with places allocated to companies* on a first-come-first-served basis. Details on timing and how to access the technology will be communicated closer to the time.
