Katleen’s Daily Digest of job related news in Ireland

Happy Friday!

This is the third daily digest of job news in Ireland.  If this is the first time you are visiting my blog, I have started a daily digest with references to job news in Ireland, links to where you can apply and other related news that I find interesting. You can find the first one here, and the one from yesterday here. It’s been quite fun to find the articles. Some are coming from newspaper articles, others I picked up via Twitter or Facebook. I also have a Google alert set up that contains words related to jobs, employment, so the below is the result of all those various searches and alerts. Going forward, I’ll start doing a weekly digest, as I would like to continue interviewing small business in the West of Ireland, I have few interesting companies lined up! To check the previous companies I interviewed, click here. If you’d like to get interviewed, please connect with me on Facebook, Twitter or good old fashioned email katleen(at)
