Research 

  

1. Find out what you don’t know   

See our upcoming events/seminars on CareersConnect in the ‘Events’ tab 

  

2. Skills inventory  

What are your skills and strengths? 

Make sure you practice the online assessments that all graduate employers use! They are easy to complete, and will only take up a few minutes of your time. Try them out on Team Focus here 

  

3. Create your Professional CV  

Your Coop CV and your Professional CV are not the same! 

We recommend that you use CareerSet first to get instant feedback on your CV and the advice on developing it further.  

Also, check out our CV Guide

  

4. Make sure you’re on LinkedIn  

You need to have a large network so you can use it later in your career! 

LinkedIn is far more than a networking site with job vacancies – the site offers a way for students and graduates to explore their career options. 

LinkedIn is a networking site, somewhere to find relevant jobs and an intelligence gathering tool for career development. 

Find more information on LinkedIn here 

  

5. Find out where to look  

The best tool to learn about your target job market is Linkedin. 

UL Alumni search will show you where past students of your course have landed in the job market. 

  

6. Attend our Autumn Careers Fair  

Our Autumn Careers Fair, the largest Graduate Careers Fair in Ireland, is on the 29th September in the UL Sports Arena. 

Make sure to get down, meet the employers and explore all the opportunities that are available to you post graduation!
