Careers

One of the real benefits of choosing to study at UL is that you will have a much better chance of finding employment when you graduate. The employment rate of UL graduates is significantly higher than the national average for all Irish graduates and this is one of the reasons why so many students select UL as their first choice.

Aiming Higher booklet: This guide is aimed at parents (and guardians) of prospective third level students, to give them a practical understanding of the higher education system in Ireland and to help them to support you in making informed decisions around third level courses and career choices. The guide is available online at: www.ul.ie/careers/ aiminghigher

First Leanings Toolkit: ‘First Leanings’ is aimed at supporting you in making a successful transition to third level. First Leanings supports students in building a picture of their individual strengths, interests and motivations and in linking this to their career preferences through a number of workshops. The toolkit brings with it a specific emphasis on the worlds of higher education and work. The toolkit is available online at: www3.ul.ie/careers/firstleanings/

Company Presentations and interviews: Over 100 employers visit the campus every year to speak to students about job opportunities and to give you advice on a range of job search skills.

Jobs CareersConnect has a very active jobs section where we advertise thousands of jobs at any one time. These include graduate programmes, along with international opportunities, volunteering jobs and summer jobs.

Mastering Your Employability: The best way to improve your employment prospects is by developing good employability skills during your time in college. We work with employers to deliver workshops to help you identify, develop and improve these skills. Sometimes, these workshops are part of your academic programme or we can offer them as additional sessions. Through their Coop experience and their academic studies, UL students get to develop a range of personal and employability skills. For this reason, graduate employers – both national and international - actively target UL graduates. As a result, you will find UL graduates working in all sectors of the economy, from new enterprises to large multinationals, where they are making a key contribution to the Irish economy. By studying at UL, you will have an opportunity to gain practical work experience in a career area related to your course through the Cooperative Education Programme (Coop). The Careers Service also provides other opportunities to help you develop your employability skills and decide what kind of career would suit your interests, ability and personality. These services include:

Careers advice: we will help you to get information on the types of jobs that relate to your degree. You can use a range of online resources to identify suitable options and then arrange to meet a Careers Advisor to discuss your ideas.

Careers Fairs UL’s Careers Service annually hosts the largest on-campus careers fair nationwide. Over 150 Irish and international employers attend to network with students and advertise their graduate programmes.
