Annual Recruitment Careers Fair

Each year AIT hosts a Recruitment Fair annually in November, which is an ideal opportunity for employers to meet with students informally and to distribute their literature. We can comfortably accommodate up to 60 companies and find this a very successful recruitment exercise for both employers and students.

Also, we invite interested companies to host a workshop on the day on topics, such as, interview techniques, presentation/negotiation/time management skills, postgraduate study etc.

Company Presentations
The Institute welcomes employers who would like to stage a company presentation targeting specific programmes and years of study. We will arrange a venue/equipment and contact the relevant disciplines in advance.

You can notify vacancies to the careers office either by email, fax, or land-mail to the following:
