As a completely new concept, a “drop-in room” facility was introduced at the event with which students found the best opportunity ever to e-meet an employer representative directly. Not every event presents such a chance, but GMIT made it possible. Besides, there was information available on postgraduate studies as well.

GMIT career service’s Fiona O’Donnell pitched in on the event’s purpose by saying that students should be able to research before entering into a field and get the best out of the meeting. And that’s what such events are all about.
