Work with Google on their YouTube Online Safety Lab

Google: Do Cool Things That Matter

As Google’s Co-Founder Larry Page once said “We’re at maybe 1% of what is possible (…) We should be focusing on building the things that don’t exist.” This attitude is what led Google to create some of our greatest innovations in recent years like the self-driving car, Google Glass and the wonders of Project Loon!

Are you excited by the prospect of “building things that don’t exist”? YouTube would like to invite university students, aspiring social and technical innovators to gain some hands-on experience in creating a technical product and discover if their ideas can help change the world!

Not only that, but we have a tonne of prizes up for grabs including Acer C7 Chromebooks and limited edition YouTube swag!

Date: 6th March 2014
Time: 9.30am – 6.00pm
Location: Google EMEA Headquarters, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4
Who is eligible to apply? This event is open to ALL students, from all academic backgrounds

Overview
During the event, we will host a presentation on innovation and some of the issues surrounding online safety as well as a number of workshops by Europe’s youngest app developer Jordan Casey, BeLonG To and SpunOut.ie. The event will be designed to help encourage young innovators to network, build their own strategy, work with mentors and set the groundwork for the creation of a realistic chrome application with a view to pitch their idea to a panel of experts. The panel will decide on the application or extension that best serves the need to create a safer online experience, is the most feasible and appealing to a user. The winning group will be presented with an Acer C7 Chromebook for each team member and all participants will be able to pick up some coveted limited edition YouTube swag!
Event Objective
The aim of the event is to create an active community using social networks, where the participants will produce applications/extensions with a positive impact on the online world.
The YouTube Safety Lab will foster innovation in chrome development and encourage others to work on a new platform, learn a new programming language, or just to try something different.

Do you have fluency in more than one language?

GRADchances Language Fair

GRADchances Language FairThe GRADchances Language Fair is on Wednesday 26th February from 12-4pm in the RDS.

This is the first ‘Careers with Languages’ Fair to be held in Ireland and will be attended by some of the most significant graduate employers in the country.

Many companies are looking to recruit graduates with strong language skills across a wide range of disciplines. The rise in FDI and the influx of MNCs (multi-national companies) using Ireland as their gateway to Europe, the Middle East and Asia (and beyond), combined with the requirement for indigenous Irish companies to succeed in an international business environment has put a focus on language skills like never before. There are a massive range of career paths open for graduates of all disciplines who have fluency in one or more languages – both English-speakers with a strong second (or more) language, and non-nationals with fluency in English.

This event will bring students, graduates and employers together to explore the wide range of career opportunities that are available for multi-linguists. These include internships, graduate schemes and immediate roles, so if you are a student or recent graduate interested in finding out how your language skills can open up fabulous careers for you both in Ireland and abroad, make sure you don’t miss the GRADchances Languages Fair.

This event is open to students from all disciplines, and is attended by employers looking to recruit from all degree subjects.

  • A range of FREE careers seminars
  • Network with leading graduate employers and find out about the types of roles they are actively recruiting for
