Employers in Residence

New for 2022/2023!

DCU Careers Service will host employers over six weeks, commencing in October 2022 and running through to November. Our Employers in Residence events will involve employers having an information stand whereby you can meet with students interested in your organisation and answer any questions they may have. This will be informal, on a one-to-one or group basis as students will stop by between classes.  There will be six employers on campus each Tuesday and Wednesday between 11am-2pm. There is no cost to attend.

 

  • Provides engagement opportunities for you to meet with students interested in your organisation
  • Opportunity to speak with interested applicants
  • Create brand recognition
  • Share information about your organisation, industry and positions 
  • The format is exhibition style with each organisation having their own information stand and company representatives available to answer students' queries

 

  • Employers in Residence will take the form of Information Stands on DCU Campus. 
  • Over six weeks from October to November, there will be six employers each day on a Tuesday and Wednesday between 11am to 2pm (student timetable permitting).  
  • Employers will set up their own Information Stand ( standard size - penguin stand).
  • Employers will be organised on a sectoral basis, where possible, in a prime location on campus. 
  • Students stop by in between classes. This allows for a more targeted approach between students and employers.
