Virtual Jobs Expo for the IT Sector


Virtual Expos Ireland to run a major online recruitment fair for the IT Sector on Thursday, 19 May 2016. The IT Sector Virtual Expos event will connect candidates and employers in the IT and computing sectors.

Online recruitment fairs have been embraced by tech-savvy companies around the world. Finding the right staff is crucial to all companies, but recruitment can be a time-consuming and costly process. Virtual Expos allows companies and recruitment firms to meet high-calibre potential employees from around the country, or indeed the globe, without needing to leave the office. This offers a cost-effective, efficient and streamlined recruitment process.

The online recruitment format has significant benefits for candidates too, particularly for those based outside Dublin, Galway and Cork. Attendees can connect online with recruiters from top organisations and explore an array of open career opportunities. By connecting directly with companies, candidates have the opportunity to chat with recruiters, share their experience, knowledge and qualifications and apply for job vacancies. With no cost to attendees and the ability to access the jobs fair wherever they are, Virtual Expos is an easy and effective way to interact with potential employers.

“We are very pleased to be introducing the Virtual Expos format to Ireland,” says Bronagh Cotter of Careers Unlimited, organisers of the fair.

“This is a radical new recruitment process that will shake up careers services in Ireland. The first Virtual Expos event is dedicated to the IT sector and we have had a brilliant response so far, in part because we are working with people who are early adopters of new technologies and who are passionate about finding smart solutions to age-old problems. In the coming months we will be holding Virtual Expos for a variety of different industries, such as banking and financial services, the pharmaceutical and health sectors, engineering, construction and many more.”


Virtual Expos is free for all attendees seeking new career opportunities. Attendees register for the event and upload their CVs, which are distributed to the companies participating in Virtual Expos. Candidates can then make an appointment to chat to employers at a time that suits them during the event. All appointments are conducted via the web. Virtual Expos works on a mobile-friendly platform and it requires no downloads or heavy software installations. All candidates need is an internet connection and a browser.
