Hi Guys,

I am currently based in Malaysia and I am from Pakistan. I am looking for the best way to find job from outside of Ireland. I am applying many jobs from many jobs sites but no one even have responded to my job application. I am looking to get a answer that Finding job from outside Ireland works?? Or someone should be in Ireland then chances of getting job is higher. Looking for guidance and help. Thank you

Hi Harshahzad318 :)

Welcome to

Do you have a visa for the country?

Depending on your line of work that is if you don't have a visa the chances are that you won't get anything.

It's always best to be in the country to look so you can attend interviews.

Hi Sim,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Currently, I don't have a visa for Ireland and I have some relatives there and they can sponsor me for visit visa. I am in Banking / Finance and Accounting field. Do you think this job field can get job there in Ireland?
Would appreciate, if you could guide over this. Thank you in advance

Hi Harshahzad318, I have the same situation as you, have you found the way? Would appreciate if you could share how you got it. Thanks!

Seems like it's not possible, or very, very hard, even for people from EU.

I wonder if there's some sort of employment agencies we can engage to help us?

I know in Singapore there are headhunters that would keep our CV and actively help us find a job. Sometimes we have to pay, but sometimes they only get payment from the employers.

Don't ever pay them. They get paid when they successfully placed someone and additionally they can also get another lump of money if the candidate passed his probation successfully. Paying for that when you're basically better served by yourself, I would qualify that as a scam lol  ;)

Kind regards,

The question is, are there any such agencies who may be able to help???

Welcome to the Forum :)

Read up on employment in Ireland HERE.

Good luck :cheers:

"Recruiters may or may not work with people currently residing abroad, but there is no harm in reaching out with your CV and asking if they are able to help. If you see a job on a recruitment website that piques your interest, apply and follow up directly to the recruiter to explain your situation further. You can do the same on all job search websites, following up with the job poster directly."


I also graduated from accounting. want to find job in Ireland. anyone share your experience in finding overseas job.

Hi there!
I'm in the same situation as you guys, so far the most common way to have a shot at securing employment would be through the Third Level Graduate Visa Scheme

Please Note: Graduates with an award at Level 9 or above on the National Framework of Qualifications qualify for the Programme will be granted permission for twelve months initially. This will be renewed for a further period of twelve months (subject to the overall eight year limit) where the graduate satisfies the immigration authorities that he or she has taken appropriate steps to access suitable graduate level employment (e.g. attendance at job interviews, signing up with graduate employment agencies, etc.).

:)  Hope this helps
