Eden Recruitment was delighted to be invited to address jobseekers at the recent Agri Careers exhibition in the RDS. Food, Pharmaceutical and Engineering Manager Declan McGrath spoke on the subject of social media and how jobseekers should utilise it in their job search.
Agri Careers is an annual event supported by the Irish Farmers Journal and last year attracted in excess of 7,000 people vying for over 1,000 positions on offer from 50 exhibitors. According to the organisers, one in eight jobs in Ireland is supported by the agricultural sector.
“We call it “social” media for a reason – it amuses, it entertains, it informs, and we normally associate it with downtime,” says Declan. “But used correctly, social media can be much more than a plaything – it can serve as a serious channel to assist on the job hunt.”
