COOL JOBS 2014

COOL JOBS

A science, technology and engineering careers event for third and fourth year undergraduate students.

Are you coming to the end of your time in college and wondering what you can do with your degree? Do you want the opportunity to meet future employers, and find out what it’s really like to be a research scientist in a university, to work for a technology company like Micron Optical, or to be a consultant with Deloitte?

Join us at Science Gallery for an exciting afternoon of seed dating, talks and club sessions from 14:00 to 16:00 on April 15th, 2014. COOL JOBS will give you the opportunity find out about the opportunities for creative and lateral thinking in science, engineering and technology careers, and meet real people working in some of the most exciting jobs in Ireland.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

"DAY IN THE LIFE" TALKS – PACCAR THEATRE

A series of 8-minute talks where you get the chance to see and hear what it’s like to work at a COOL JOB. Speakers from a number of multinational companies and research centres across Ireland will share how they got their position, what a typical day looks like, and what they love most about their job.

SEED DATING – STUDIOS 1 & 2

A rapid fire event where you get to connect one-on-one with a person with a COOL JOB. This is a chance to ask them anything you like: What course did they study? Did they always want to work in their current career? What is the best/worst thing about their job? But make it fast: you only have 3 minutes before you have to move on to the next round.

CLUB SESSIONS – DELOITTE GALLERY

The Deloitte Gallery will be our club session space, where you can have a snack while you chat to people you heard speak in the theatre or met during Seed Dating, and pick up some more information about the companies they work for.
 

COOL JOBS is a FREE EVENT for students, a collaboration between Science Gallery and CRANN, TCD and is in part supported by a Science Foundation Ireland, Discover Science and Engineering grant and a EC FP7 project, KiiCS.
