The webinar replaces the annual Mayo Careers Fair which has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. De bharr an paindéim COVID 19 b’éigin an ghnáth Aonach bliantúil Ghairme Mhaigh Eo a chur ar athlá agus an webinar seo a chur ar fáil ina háit.

Is é cuspóir an webinar ná faisnéis thábhachtach a thabhairt do mhic léinn agus do theaghlaigh faoi na roghanna éagsúla atá ar fáil dóibh agus iad ag críochnú a gcuid oideachais dara leibhéal.  Tá cead isteach saor in aisce.
