Virtual Expos

Virtual Expos for the IT sector to take place on 28 July

Online Recruitment Fair to take place on Thursday, July 28th from 4pm-8pm

Virtual Expos Ireland runs targeted online recruitment fairs to particular industries. Our upcoming event is for jobseekers and employers working in the IT sector, where there is a real and pressing need for qualified staff.

“ICT professionals are in high demand across Ireland. This has been the case for a number of years and staffing shortages have grown more acute as Ireland’s computer and IT sector continues to grow,” says Bronagh Cotter of Careers Unlimited, organiser of Virtual Expos.

Ireland is home to a number of international tech companies, many of whom have their European headquarters in Dublin. These include Google, Facebook, Amazon, Etsy, IBM and Groupon. In addition, there are a number of home-grown startup successes as well as traditional industries looking to file IT roles. As such, there are significant career opportunities in Ireland for ICT professionals.

“Companies need great staff to thrive, and the shortfall is troubling to many industry experts.  This is one of the reasons our initial Virtual Expos event for the ICT sector was such a success. Because Virtual Expos are run as online, specialised recruitment fairs, companies across Ireland can meet candidates whether they are in Athlone, Athens or Atlanta. This is a hassle-free and cost-effective way for companies to recruit staff, and for employees to find the perfect job.”
