Want to know what some of the top tech companies are looking for in their dream candidates?

University of Limerick hosts one of the largest careers fairs in the country, and it’s the perfect place for graduates to scope out which companies are hiring.

This year, Siliconrepublic.com headed down to find out what some of the recruiters were looking for.

Rob Buckley, operations manager at Apple in Cork, said his company was there to recruit dynamic and energetic graduates for its Cork campus.

“We’re looking for candidates with a commerce or information systems background, but any candidate can apply as long as they’re somewhat energetic and dynamic.”
