Jobs Club

ISI's Jobs Club

Hey ISI students! Getting a job is a primary goal in life, and ISI is happy to support its students in this with Jobs Club.

Dublin is not a cheap place to live, and having a steady source of income helps a lot while you’re studying! But how do you find a job in Dublin? Or how do you find a job in Ireland, for that matter?

There are various websites one can look at to help you in your job search – some of the best websites to find a job include LinkedIn, Indeed and JobsIreland. But better yet, ISI is restarting its Jobs Club!

ISI Jobs Club

Conor Dooley runs our Jobs Club, which is getting reactivated following some months of inactivity during the worst of the pandemic. He can offer some invaluable advice and coaching to students seeking a job. Jobs Club only lasts for one hour a week, but manages to pack in a lot of information!

By far the biggest challenge that faces our students who are hoping to work is getting a PPS number. Coupled with the hurdle associated with GNIB, it can make for an absolute ‘head-wrecker’, as Conor says. But with Conor’s help, ISI tries to ensure that as soon as students are able to legally work, then they can start applying for jobs straightaway.

Every week on Jobs Club, students will be reminded to bring along their English-language CV and cover letter on social media. Conor is in a position to give corrections and reformat these CVs wherever necessary. There are also numerous different websites that can help with the formatting of a CV to help it stand out more from the crowd.

If a student is a recent graduate or has never had the experience of working before, then there are also various tweaks and changes that can be made to the CV to make the candidate more employable. There are also various available templates online for CVs and cover letters that can be used and adapted by students to suit their particular needs.

Students who are further advanced in the process, and deemed ready for job interviews, will be properly rehearsed during the process of Jobs Club. We will take a close look at the typical questions that may be asked during an interview situation and the various ways one may answer them. Any potential pitfalls that may arise will also be highlighted – relevant questions one may ask could include: how many hours one can work, what the minimum wage is, and so on.

Conor Dooley will also regularly be in touch with recommendations for useful websites one may sign up for, or where you may see relevant jobs advertised. If ever ISI is contacted by any company, or Conor gets wind of any word of mouth about new places opening, or even if he sees an ad on a window, then this information will be promptly shared with students on the notice board.

If you have any further inquires about ISI Jobs Club, please do not hesitate to contact Conor at conordooley1@live.ie
