How to get a job in Ireland
You’re looking for a job at a fancy hotel, or a job that’s not as lucrative as a job you might get at a bank or a boutique, but is still something you can be proud of.
So how do you get a position that pays a living wage?
That’s where you come in, writes Nalu Molnar in this month’s Irish Times Money section.
Molnary, who has lived in Dublin for four years, has been an employee of Lulus, a boutique in the heart of the city’s business district, since January.
“It was not that hard to get here, but then I had to start looking for jobs.
I’ve always had a very entrepreneurial mindset, and it was easy to see why I had no problem with finding work.”
With no experience working in a boutique or hotel, she said she was not looking for an internship, but was “working in a hotel, a restaurant, or an agency” to make ends meet.
Mondo is a social networking site that allows people to share information about their interests, professions and hobbies.
It’s been a great way to meet new people, Molnaria said.
The platform allows people who are unemployed to get connected with potential employers, who will offer them a job.
Molkar’s job was as a customer service representative at the hotel, which had two receptionist desks and was on the third floor.
Minskar, who was working on her bachelor’s degree, wanted to help out her family and her friends, and wanted to have the option to travel if she needed to.
“I was looking for something that could help me support myself, my family, and my friends,” Molnari said.
“So I looked for a position to work in, but I didn’t want to be stuck in the hotel.”
The job at the boutique offered a living rate of €1,000 a week, which was good for a single person.
Mornar said she decided to take it, since she wanted to make a life for herself in Ireland.
“You can live a much better life if you’re employed,” Molkary said.
Moms job was a position at a coffee shop, and she did not feel that the salary was anything special.
“There are a lot of coffee shops around here, so I figured I would do the best I could,” she said.
A cafe is another option for people looking for work, but Molnare said she had to pay for coffee, food and her own living expenses.
She said she also took a part-time job at an agency to make up for the time she was working.
Morns salary was €1 a day, which she said was “not that much” for her, and was not enough to support her family.
“A good salary is a good salary,” Minskary said, and if she was looking to travel, she could find a job working at a hotel or restaurant, where she could work in the evenings.
“For me it was a very easy decision, as it meant I could spend more time with my family,” she added.
Mollie, a 26-year-old mother of three from Waterford, was also looking for the best job she could get, and her family supported her decision.
“My husband is unemployed, and we’re still trying to save enough money to send our son to college, but we’ve got so many bills,” Molli said.
She was a waitress at a local cafe, and said she loved it there.
“At home, I could do the dishes, but when you work at a cafe it’s a different thing.
It helps to know that you can have a nice, healthy lunch,” Moller said.
There were plenty of other opportunities to work, Mollia said, but she was disappointed that she had not been offered a job as a salesperson.
If I want to do this for the rest of my life, I’d rather work at an employment agency or in a cafe,” Molls mother said.
