Over sixty companies at careers fair in ATU

Over 60 companies are to take part in this year’s Atlantic Technological University (ATU) Donegal’s Careers Fair in the Letterkenny campus on Monday, 24 October.

This hybrid event will give students and graduates the opportunity to meet recruiters either online or in person to learn about the latest career trends and job opportunities as well as postgraduate study, placements, and internships.

Some 1,000 students are expected to visit the various stands in An Dánlann on the day which gets underway at 12 noon and runs until 3pm, where the online sessions run from 9.30am to 12pm.


Locally based companies that return year after year include Tata Consultancy Services, Randox, Sita, FinTrU, Enterprise Rent a Car, Optum, and Medisize.

With the designation to a university status, ATU Donegal will welcome new additions to the Careers Fair such as Google, EY, General Motors, and Zinkworks.

Catherine Lyster, Careers Officer, ATU Donegal, says: “I am delighted with the range and calibre of recruiters attending the 2022 ATU Donegal Hybrid Careers Fair. There has been a marked increase in representation by local and national employers in all sectors looking to recruit our graduates.

“ I would advise students from all years, not just final year students, to download the Career Fair Plus app and to come along to the fair and meet with the employers as many of them offer part-time work opportunities and internships.

The Careers Fair Plus app also has important information on CV preparation and a list of important questions to ask at careers fairs.”

In addition to the main ATU Careers event, the ATU Donegal Careers Service has teamed up with the Co-Lab, ATU Donegal to host an Open Morning at the Co-Lab when students can meet with Co-Lab based exhibitors from 9.30am – 11.30am in advance of the main ATU Donegal Careers Fair.

Students are advised to download the Career Fair Plus app which outlines information on companies that are in attendance, book appointments with recruiters that will be only attending during the online morning sessions, and to gain valuable tips on how to make the most out of a hybrid careers fair.
