Jobs in Ireland

By jck ·
I'm just curious.

I know about the EU rules for employment and how it affects how professional, exempt positions are listed and hired for in Ireland.

But, is it impossible for an American to get employment there?

Just curious on the perspective from anyone in Ireland and/or recruiters who might recruit for firms in Ireland.

I'm heading for Dublin in February.

Guess what I'll do in my spare time before I go to the pubs?

See...that's the great thing about the Irish...

They don't mind the smell of Guinness on your breath!!!! ]:)

Ahh, training

Perfect practice prevents pisspoor performance.

You'll be the biggest leprechan on the Emerald Isle.

I'll look you up if I ever get there. We'll meet in the best pub to bring kids. My boy can have his first (whole pint of) Guinness.

what'd really get me a visa in Ireland fast...

is marrying me a pretty Irish girl.

but noble blood line demands I find a woman fit to be my queen...and, I have to find a gal who can tolerate my geekish half a dozen computer systems in the house along with 2 full-blown audio-visual systems....hahahaha :)

but seriously...I might actually try to interview with a firm...not for a job, but just to meet people and let them know for the right opportunity that I'd seriously consider moving to Ireland...and stay there til I'm in a box.
