The Irish Times forum by and for Irish citizens living overseas,

Have your say: How did you find a job?

This week, we want to know how you found a job abroad – in advance through a recruitment agency, online, or through the Irish community or existing contacts? What advice do you have for others?

This week, we want to know how you found a job abroad.

Did you secure employment or apply for a position before you left Ireland through a recruitment agency or online? If you found a job after arrival, was it through existing contacts? How important was networking, and were the Irish community helpful? Are there differences between the job application process in Ireland and where you now live, and do you have any advice for others?
