Building the Future is a unique careers event and it is aimed at students and graduates from higher education with disabilities.
This event is an excellent opportunity for people living with a disability to go and meet and chat with potential employers about jobs they have to offer, placements, their graduate programmes and just general advice.
This year the companies already confirmed to attend are Citi, Abbott Vascular, Bank of Ireland, Deliotte, ESB, Enterprise Rent-a-car, EY, Gas Networks Ireland, KPMG and IBM with more to be announced.
There are so many great opportunities available on the day such as;
There will be Informative workshops with a number to choose from all relating to your specific job search and they will be there to help improve your employability skills.
Mock interviews will be held and carried out by some of the most successful companies in Ireland and you will be able to receive feedback on your performance and advice on how to keep improving. Places for these are limited, however, so you would need to book your spot or keep an eye out for on the day to see if one becomes available.
A Walk-In CV clinic will also be available, where you can bring a copy of your CV and have it checked out by one of the employers on the day. All you have to do is make sure you have your CV with you and then book an appointment on the day.
This event is run by AHEAD (Association for Higher Education Access & Disability) and has been running for the past 5 years and is delighted to be returning again this year.
