Searching for a job can be tough, especially when you are straight out of college with little or no experience. Handing out CVs seems to be a thing of the past with a lot of job announcements and application processes moving online.
To keep up-to-date on these announcements there are plenty of Facebook and Twitter pages which regularly update their followers on the most recent jobs on offer.
Dublin Job Fairy
This is a page on both Facebook and Twitter. If a company tweets or posts anything with #jobfairy or #workfairy it will be shown on these pages. There is also ‘Irish Job Fairy’ which covers all over Ireland including Dublin and updates a bit more regularly. They also have a website to follow as well on irishjobfairy.wordpress.com
The Intern Fairy
Getting an internship can be the foot in the door you need to gain full time employment. Pretty similar to its sister site ‘Dublin Job Fairy’, the Intern Fairy searches and tweets for internships so you don’t have to. These internships are in a variety of different areas, so whatever you want to do with yourself you’re likely to find something here.
The JobFairy Dublin
This is a Twitter page which regularly retweets job vacancies from other job sites and posts their own job search findings. They update a bit more regularly then the previous sites and tweet about all types of job vacancies.
You’ve all probably heard of Jobbio by now, it is a website where you can set up your own profile through a live bio and connect privately to companies that you want to work for. But fear not, if you don’t have a page set up you can follow Jobbio on Facebook and Twitter and they tweet and post about job opportunities, you can also search their website for your specific job wants.
Journalism and new media jobs (Ireland)
This is a group on Facebook dedicated to journalism and media jobs available in Ireland, although some British posts often sneak in. Just type the name into Facebook, click ‘join group’ and you’re in! The group has over 3700 members who post and discuss media vacancies in Ireland. The group also has a policy of not posting about unpaid internships because lets me honest, they’re not too fab.
Of course you can still go from place to place handing in your CV and try to find a job that way, but now you can follow these pages along with updating and perfecting your LinkedIn page to try and find the perfect job for you.
