Meet Employers

Meet with Employers on Campus

Employers are very keen to meet with DCU students.   On a daily basis throughout Semesters 1 and 2, employers come on campus to discuss their Graduate training programmes and recruitment processes. It’s a great opportunity to see if you would like to work with that company. It’s a wonderful way to understand the job market and even line up a job before you leave college.

Meet with Employers at Careers Events.
