Spectacular Experience

My time in Ireland was nothing short of spectacular. I had the privilege to intern at a prestigious Hotel in beautiful Dublin, Ireland from May to August this past summer. I went through USIT’S Work in Ireland program and the result of my first time in Europe was the best summer of my life. Not only did I gain incredible work experience but I met people from around the world, travelled to unbelievable destinations, and lived within the vibrant Irish culture.

From my first contact with the Work in Ireland program, I was impressed. They made obtaining my visa a seamless process by letting me know what documents I needed and keeping in constant contact with me the entire time. When I received the final pamphlet in the mail, I was ecstatic and it built up my excitement for the adventure I was about to embark upon. Inside contained my visa and a comprehensive book highlighting the best places to go, restaurants to eat at, and pubs for live music within Ireland. My friends and I read through this book and used it while abroad to navigate the foreign country that was suddenly our home. It helped us discover beautiful parks, incredible tours and some of the best food I have been fortunate to indulge upon.

However, the best experience I had with the Work in Ireland program came when I had the pleasure of coming into the office located in downtown Dublin during my stay in Ireland. I met the Work in Ireland team, a kind and energetic group, who made sure that my experience in the city was going smoothly. They made sure that I had found a quality place to live and work and was enjoying the nightlife that the city had to offer. They showed me around the office which had a great computer lab for participants to use and he also gave me the incredible opportunity to go on the rooftop of the offices and get a stunning view of Dublin. While up there, we did an interview and I discussed how much fun I was already having. The services provided by the Work in Ireland program are plentiful and it was reassuring to know that they existed. It was a wonderful experience being part of the Work in Ireland program and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone looking for an unforgettable adventure.

I will forever love the country of Ireland and the city of Dublin and I have, in part, the Work in Ireland program to thank for that.

Life changing experience

Five years ago I decided to leave everything behind – family, friends, job and home – to go on a life changing experience filled with highs and lows. The experience along with the support of USIT allowed me to not only reflect on who I was, but allowed me to know myself in a way like no other. Fast forward to today and after a year in Ireland and two years in London I continue to make new friends and memories that allow me to grow and evolve. I hope to take it all in while I live in a country that captured my heart so many years ago. I want to help others have the same experience and tell those wondering if they should do it that they will make connections with a country, people and themselves in a way that will change their life forever.

Living the dream

I'm doing great here in Ireland! Finding a place to live was a bit rocky at the start but I've found a wonderful place with 3 Irish housemates so I feel I'm getting the complete Irish living experience! I currently work as a direct dialogue fundraiser an Irish based charity and my office is basically all of Ireland. With Ireland being so small it is easy to travel around and a truly great way to experience all aspects of the country. I get to see the country and travel around to different places around the area, meeting new people and doing a job I am truly passionate about. Aka, Living the dream!
I absolutely love living in Dublin and would more than recommend anyone with a passion for travel and adventure to take the plunge and start your Work in Ireland adventure!

Wonderful experience :)

I recently finished up with my program for working in Ireland. I took part in the 12 month program the Work In Ireland group have to offer. I was based in Dublin for most of my time here but also moved to Galway for a short period to work also as well as travelling around the country to explore (which I found very easy due to it being such a small country!).

I found the Work In Ireland group to be very helpful from even before I arrived in Ireland. I was not familiar with the taxing regulations in Ireland and they worked very differently to the U.S and I found this to be quite intimidating so I contacted the Work In Ireland group via email to help me understand it all. I found they were very quick to respond to my queries which was very helpful and I found I was much less stressed when the time came for me to leave for Ireland! When I arrived in Ireland I was finding it very difficult originally in getting any employment so I went into their office located in Dublin to try get some assistance. I found the staff to be very helpful as they provided me with an array of places currently recruiting and within a week I found employment so I could fully relax for the rest of my stay there. I would definitely suggest people looking to work in Ireland to avail of this program and service!

Helpful Irish!

I took part in the 12 month program with Work In Ireland which I started in September 2016. I have to say that my experience so far with the Work In Ireland program has been great! The staff have been very helpful in assisting with me with any queries I’ve had regarding things such as employment or accommodation. They always keep participants up to date with job offers or housing offers by providing information on their notice boards in their office in Dublin and also in their Facebook group. They also provide monthly socials which are great fun and also great for making new friends! The Work In Ireland group also give great tips on things to do on a monthly basis which is great for trying new things such as traditional music sessions which I personally found to be a fantastic experience. All in all, I am very satisfied with the service this program offers and I would highly recommend anyone else who’s considering to visit Ireland for work to do so with the Work In Ireland Program.
