29 January 2018
The Teagasc College of Amenity Horticulture in the National Botanic Gardens are inviting interested horticultural companies to showcase at their Spring Careers Day on March 8, 2018 in their new college classroom building in Glasnevin.
This event is a platform to inform interested students about the courses that are on offer in the college and also to showcase the careers available in the horticultural sector.
The College of Amenity Horticulture envisage it being a networking event where companies can setup stands which students can approach to discuss career opportunities and present their CVs.
Students in Level 6 have formed a committee to organise the event and are interested in running the programme for the day. They see it as a very important event for their future employment in horticulture.
Short industry talks will be held to to inform the attendees about the different areas of horticulture and what skill-sets are needed to succeed in them.
The event will run from 1-4.30pm on Thursday March 8, in the new college building and invited companies setup from 12pm on the day.
Companies are being contacted by the college directly and are encouraged to bring any materials they wish in terms of advertising, including pop-up banners and company brochures – students will be on-hand to help with the setup.
The College of Amenity Horticulture will then inform the contacted companies of the arrangements for the afternoon along with parking and lunch which will both be provided for by the college.
