We know that job hunting can be hard work but one way to make it easier for yourself is to set up a job alert.
A job alert is simply an email that we send you with notifications of the roles that matching your requirements.
It’s useful because it frees you from having to check IrishJobs.ie for new jobs. You no longer have to worry about missing a job that would be right for you.
It is also a quick and easy way to keep track of who is hiring in your industry. Even if you are not “actively” job hunting at the moment it is still a very useful tool to help you monitor your sector.
