Local recruitment agencies well placed to spot trends for year ahead

Mon, Jan 05, 2015

In a new three part series, The Galway Advertiser in conjunction with our classifieds website classifieds.advertiser.ie is examining the current state of the jobs market in the region. We spoke to experts from three well known recruitment companies which operate offices in the city; Collins McNicholas, Cpl, and HAYS. In this week’s feature, we assess the year gone by, while next week the recruiters make their predictions for 2015 and in the final part of the series, there will be advice and tips on how to land your dream job.

In the years up to 2007, Ireland and in turn Galway, had one of the healthiest labour markets in the world. However we are all only too aware of the turn of events since the economic boom, when thousands of people lost their jobs through no fault of their own. This is undoubtedly a heartbreaking and humiliating experience. There is so much more to a job than money, it is an extension of our identities, a steady routine, and a positive social outlet. We hope if you are a jobseeker or considering a job or indeed a career change that some of the information and pointers in this series helps to give you the confidence and motivation to aspire to be the best you can be.
