Will I be able to find a job in Ireland?
When we asked people about industries and career opportunities in Ireland, they reponded...
"Foreigners often work in Ireland in a variety of occupations, ranging from service and hospitality jobs, such as wait staff and chefs, to administrative and software engineering positions. Other common jobs for foreigners include teaching, nursing, and construction work. A variety of skilled trades, including electricians, carpenters, and plumbers, are also frequently in-demand. In addition, many foreigners participate in cultural exchanges or work holiday programs, which provide temporary work opportunities in various industries," said a member in Ireland.
"Tubbercurry has a college and some smaller industries, shops, groceries, restaurants, library, health center and two major medical doctors, among other facilities so all our needs are cared for locally. A large part of Tubbercurry is devoted to livestock and farming. Although job opportunities may exist here, a person is only a bus ride away from larger towns and cities like Sligo to the north and Galway to the south. Tubbercurry has the advantage of being on the main bus route, N17, which runs north and south on the western side of the country. Depending on one's skills there are opportunities in IT work, medical fields, and others and it just takes some pre-planning to know if there is a niche for whatever skills one might possess and how distant from town those opportunities," remarked another expat who made the move to Tubbercurry, Ireland.
