Yes! Even if you have friends in Ireland, the information provided at your USIT Work in Ireland orientation session is crucial in helping you make the most of your time here.
We will provide detailed information on registering your work authorization (a legal requirement) and provide the details on getting your Work in Ireland identification card – a must before you begin work anywhere else in the country. We also give you information on money matters, finding housing and your job search.
We also provide tips on “arrival survival”, exploring your new location and travel around Ireland much, much more. The Work in Ireland handbook is packed with helpful information, so make sure you attend and get yours. The orientation is also a great place to meet other participants on the program, making friends and maybe even finding roommates. The USIT Dublin office will serve as your hub of support throughout your stay, where you will find printing and computer facilities, jobs and housing information, travel advice and friendly faces – so be sure to attend your orientation and visit often.
