Language Fair

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.
