European Online Job Day – Cork, 4th of May 2017


EURES Cork, together with the direct support of the European Commission, is organising a
European Online Job Day aimed at attracting skilled IT/ Business Service talent from Europe to join Ireland’s booming technology sector.

What’s happening?

The event, happening exclusively online on the 4th of May 2017, will take place virtually on the event’s website created on the European portal:

Through the website and its interactive elements the jobseekers will be able to apply for jobs, make contact with you and book job interviews during the event. EURES Ireland will assist you with pre-selection of candidates and interviews scheduling if required. Interviews with the selected candidates may be conducted online on the day of the event using Netop Live Guide available through the website or any other software (e.g. Skype, video conferencing) preferred by you. In addition, live streaming of your company’s presentations, live broadcast of pre-recorded videos and public & private chats will be available to all European jobseekers targeted for this event.

Who will be attending?

The event will be widely advertised in Europe. IT/ Business service professionals will be targeted through a European promotional campaign including: social media advertising (European Commission and EU/EEA countries), online advertising on a number of ICT related websites in Europe, information distributed to EURES departments and Technical Engineering/ICT Professional Bodies in all EU/EEA countries.   

As the event is funded and supported by the EU Commission there is no cost to your company to participate.
