28th March 2017 Our Business Groups visit Paypal Dundalk
On Tuesday 28th March, learners from Level 5 Business & Office Administration and Level 6 Advanced IT & Business Management classes from Monaghan Institute visited the PayPal Holdings Complex in Dundalk.
This trip was kindly organised by FIT Ltd (Fast Track to IT) as part of their Career Skills work with both groups. FIT is an industry-led initiative whose mission is to faciliate collaboration between education centres and industry; aiming to enable learners with greater access to employment opportunities.
During the visit, learners met with PayPal employees to discuss their experiences in the company, job descriptions and recruitment procedures. PayPal staff also provided learners with best practice advice on preparing CVs for job applications and preparing for interviews. Everyone agreed that it was an enlightening and helpful experience.
