Jobs in Ireland for International Students who study in Ireland
In our India companies offer Jobs in hand within 2 days of recruitment process but in Ireland case is different for hiring freshers as well as experience proferssionals.
For freshers in Ireland, if you come to Ireland for a one year course and in Fall of 2015 ( September or October) your course starts, most he of companies would accept applications of Graduate students in Oct-Dec of 2015 and there job will start in Next year in September 2015.
So usually, companies in Ireland begin their recruitment mission one year before the job begins, so that student who is graduating from University have job immediately after he finish his course.
Job application process in Ireland is quite similar to countries like US UK or Australia(No Easygoin Campus recruitment).You will have to apply online then telephonic interview and then go for actual face to face round where you will actually get confirmation whether you are in or not. If you are unlucky then you will be asked for more interviews for further process but if you are out of the box in talent then you will definitely be in.So you need a lot of patience as you will spend so much time on one Job opening.
As you are in different country you will have to prepare your CV and Cover letter according the requirement of Ireland and also adorn you LinkedIn profile with your skills to attract top notch IT employers.
