I would advise them to give it a go, it doesnít mean you have to work there long term. You must know how to speak a language other than your mother tongue reasonably well as a good proficiency is essential. Itís also important to know and understand the cultural diversity that makes up the European Union. Our internships are a great chance to come for a short period to determine where your interests lie and taste the experiences. Starting out your career path with the EU gives you a really good foundation of insider knowledge of how the EU works and is so useful professionally even if you donít plan on working there forever. It is also important for young Irish people to consider moving to countries that are not English speaking and working for the EU would be very useful to your long term career.

Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobs 


Monday, January 17, 2011 




Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobsAbout 850 construction jobs are to be created as Intel expands its Leixlip technology campus, the company has announced.

The technology giant, which posted record revenues last year, is investing $500 million (€376.9 million) in the construction project as it expects continuing worldwide demand for its products and services in 2011.

A further 200 high end employment positions will be created at the Leixlip campus once the construction work has been completed.

Commenting on the news, IDA Ireland chief executive officer Barry O'Leary welcomed the move and said it is a "significant strategic investment for Ireland".

"Given that the initial impact over the next two years will result in over 1,000 jobs between construction, contract and full time employment it is immensely positive news," he added.

Mr O'Leary also noted that high end manufacturing is key for Ireland's economic growth.

Last week, the IDA said it was supporting French financial software systems developer Murex as it expands its operations in Dublin.
