"Serious characters" are needed for the 2019 Jameson Graduate Programme

You'd better hurry, as applications close next week.

Now in its 27th year, the Jameson International Graduate Programme is one of the most popular of its kind in Ireland. To date, over 400 graduates have completed it.

According to Jameson, "serious character" is the one thing they all had in common. Basically, you need to be able to show them that there is more to you than the average student.

If you think you have what it takes, you have until 1 pm on Wednesday, 16 January to apply for the programme. The first part being a written application, and the second part being where you submit a video.

Don't hold back, and make sure what you put down would stand out from the crowd. Around 80% of their graduates speak an international language, so be sure to mention any that you have under your belt.

Even if your only language is English, it's always worth submitting an application.

Sinéad D’Arcy, Head of Jameson International Graduate Programme, said: “Every year we look for driven, charismatic and creative graduates, from a range of diverse backgrounds, to serve as brand ambassadors in cities across the world," she said.

It also helps if you've done a bit of travelling yourself. The successful graduates will be offered the opportunity to work in any one of 50 countries worldwide.
