Jobseekers Course

The Jobseekers Course

Employment Preparation

The Jobseekers Course, for those who are job-ready, is designed to provide you with the skills and resources you need to become a successful job hunter. Course content includes:

  • Finding your skills
  • Career research
  • CVs
  • Letter Writing
  • Interview Preparation

The Jobseekers Course is funded by the DSP as part of our Jobclub. Clients must have registered with Intreo/ LES as unemployed. Participation in the course does not affect your social welfare benefits.


Jobseekers Course Details

The course runs Monday to Thursday mornings from 10.00am to 1.00pm. Formal classes last for two hours with a short coffee break. At the end of each class you are given job-related tasks to complete in the Resource Room where Jobcare’s trained staff will help you to put what you have learned into practice.

Interview Practice

As part of the course you are given an external mock interview with a local business organisation. Those who have taken the course find this to be very useful in preparing for ‘the real thing’.

Follow up

Jobcare’s commitment does not end when when you complete the course. You will be assigned a member of staff who will meet with you on a one to one basis in the weeks following the course. In addition, as you will continue to have privileged access to the Resource Room until you find a job.
