Graduate Webinar: What are my options after my degree?

As a final year student or recent graduate, you’re excited about your future but uncertain of what lies ahead. We want to make the transition from Grad to Employee as easy as possible for you by bringing you a series of webinars that help you to prepare for life post-college.

We are delighted for our next Graduate Webinar to be joined by Sinead D’Arcy, Jameson Graduate Programme, Rob O’Leary AIB, and Rachel Purcell, Edelman.

Our panelists will discuss what options Graduates have after their degree, how to ace a video interview, what exactly an agency is, and tips they wish they knew themselves starting out on their marketing career.

Rob O'leary

A digital native from the sunny south east, Rob is Digital Content Manager in AIB with a passion for sponsorship and making people cry… (through emotive storytelling and laughter). It was while studying Recreation, Sport and Business Management in Waterford Institute of Technology that Rob discovered his grá for marketing with a particular admiration for the power of sponsorship which was the back-bone of his thesis. To further enhance his digital knowledge he studied an MSc in Digital Marketing from the Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School (UCD) and while completing his degree, he worked with social media agency BoomMedia based out of Co. Wexford. Not long after, opportunities began to come to the fore and with it came brilliant learning, award winning work, disappointment & growth as a marketer.
