While it is great to see some positive media out there in relation to a general uptake in the wider economy, it seems people are still very much feeling doom and gloom in relation to the jobs market.
The Morgan McKinley Irish Employment Monitor measures the pulse of the Irish professional jobs market by tracking the number of new job vacancies and new candidates within the Republic of Ireland each month.
I'm constantly speaking to candidates who want to advance their career and apply for roles where they match 50% of the spec but where they feel they can learn on the job as they progress in the new role. Today, companies demand people with proven skills, qualifications and specific experience. So how does one go from having limited experience to being the fully formed lead candidate? One thing is for sure, there is no such thing as overnight success!
Whether you’re a recent IT Graduate or currently completing your IT degree, you’re probably wondering what next.
Happy New Year from the tax and practice desk at Morgan McKinley!
