Key points to be mindful of while looking for IT jobs in Ireland

preparing for a job search IT jobs

  1. Conduct thorough company research

    You need to know the company you’re applying to, inside out. The more you learn about their process, technologies, and culture, the better conversations you can have with the interviewer. This would also show them your level of interest in the company.

    Solid research makes for a very good first impression. Head over to their website and their social media pages, there’s a pool of information that will give you an idea of what the company is about. It will also help you understand better if the atmosphere matches your personality and what you're looking for.

  2. Match your CV to the given job description

    Tailoring your CV to match the given job description is of prime importance. The employer is most probably going over hundreds of CVs for every job they advertise, so they’re looking to quickly scan over your CV and spot the relevant skills and qualifications. Make it a point to highlight your experience and include the keywords mentioned in the job description. 

    Alternatively, a system could be reading your CV, in this case, if you’ve skipped over using the ideal keywords, your CV would not even make it to the shortlist to be viewed by your employer.  So always align your CV to the job description.

  3. Interview preparation 

    Now, moving on to the interview. You’ve passed the initial stages and are now being invited in, how can you set yourself up to succeed at this part?

    There are usually two main areas of the interview that you need to check off. First, you need to answer all the questions that are presented to you, where they assess your technical skills and ability, and second, they look for the questions you have for them. You should have at least 10 questions to ask your interviewer at the end of the process, this shows them how keen you are about the role.
