Job Club (Tullamore & Birr)

You may be entering the world of work for the first time; you may have many years of work experience under your belt; you may be one of thousands of people that have been made redundant or lost their job in the economic downturn; you may want to change career direction, or you may simply be looking for a better job - all are reasons that prompt people to look at the labour market for job opportunities.

In the current climate, finding the right job can be a challenging, exciting or even a daunting process. Finding a job is a job in itself, and should be approached with a sense of challenge and responsibility. There are many ways jobs are advertised, and knowing where to look and what to expect is important. So if you are looking for a job, the job club will assist you by getting a fuller understanding of the process.

The Job Club has a range of resources available to you that are designed to assist you in making sound, informed decisions about your career.
