Agri Careers: more than just jobs on offer
Tips on maximising your LinkedIn profile, photos from a professional photographer and a number of competitions will be held on the day.


LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network and the most valuable site when it comes to all things careers. Utilising the platform is one thing, but using it to its absolute maximum is entirely different.

LinkedIn’s ‘Rock Your Profile’ is designed to give you the proper guidelines to follow in order to make the most of your profile. The Agri Careers Expo will give you the chance to speak directly to LinkedIn ambassadors on how to achieve this. They will analyse your page and inform you on what improvements can be made.

By the end of the one-to-one tutorial, your page will be a well-rounded page that will reach employers across the industry.

If that isn’t enough, LinkedIn will also be speaking in the Career Development Hub on how to make the best use of your profile. When you leave the event, we want your profile to be as good as any on the site.


Similar to other years, we will have a photographer there on the day, who will take a professional headshot. The headshot will be sent to you via email after the event. The professional photograph can be used on a CV or on a social platform such as LinkedIn. There is no need to pre-register, just turn up and smile.

Guidance Counsellor

For school goers, a guidance counsellor will be there on the day, to provide one-to-one assistance to school students on options they can take after school.

And if you are not a schoolgoer but want a change of career, this area may provide you with vital information on what third level education to pursue.

Drake tickets

Drake is playing in Dublin’s 3Arena in March and we have a pair of Drake tickets worth €300 to give away on the day of the event. Competitions details to be confirmed, but stay tuned to and our Agri Careers Twitter page for more details.
