DUBLIN – 28 August, 2012 – Now its fourth event, Career Zoo is taking place in The Convention Centre Dublin on 22 September.

Career Zoo is established as Ireland's leading career event for professionals and graduates who are seeking new career opportunities in Ireland. Thousands of delegates attend Career Zoo events where they meet many of Ireland's most successful and innovative employers, education providers and enterprise organisations.

“September’s Career Zoo will be bigger and better than our previous events,” said Brian Ó hOisín, director at Career Zoo. “We’re very excited to be heading down to the Convention Centre; it’s a world-class venue right in the city centre and we see this event as a national showcase of the great opportunities that are out there in Ireland today.”

Ó hOisín is anticipating between 3,500 and 4,000 professional jobs will be on offer at the upcoming Career Zoo, coming from major multinational corporations, as well as indigenous Irish companies. Educators and enterprise organisations will also be in attendance to provide information on upskilling and conversion programmes, while careers workshops and seminars by industry leaders will be held throughout the day.

Attendees have the opportunity to:
