When I established the forums in 2005 it was to offer a more richer web experience and greater functionality than the platform where we started this social adventure in 2003, Yahoo Groups. The forums were once a busy hive of activity and provided locals and visitors with a wealth of information just like the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook today.

It was a time where we didn't have the many social media platforms we have today, and it was a different time in terms of mobility and technology. There was no instant access to information, no Google Maps and a very limited base map on your GPSr. Mobile connectivity for me was a 9600bps Infrared connection from a Nokia to a laptop and in later times to a PDA using WAP.

As we moved into the social media era so did our forums users. Geocaching Ireland moved there too, and we have a thriving community on the Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group on Facebook. As a result, forum activity isn't what it used to be and I have taken the decision to disable new registrations to the forums and to make the forums read only so any information there can still be accessed.

The discussion hasn't ended, it has just moved. Join us on the Facebook Geocaching Ireland Discussion Group .

Any jobs going?

Post by unifieddivide » Tue Feb 05, 2013 7:46 pm

Hi fellow cachers!

I came over from Canada on a working holiday visa at the start of January and have yet to find employment - was wondering if anyone here had any leads. I most recently worked for a media company in Wellington NZ for the past few years so have been keeping my eye on a few companies here along the same lines (I worked as a broadcast monitor and editor). Looking at everything really - been dropping cv's off to anywhere from Tesco to Google! No real hospitality skills (waiting tables, barista) so have not bothered. Am currently in Dublin but would move if any opportunities arose.

Hi unified divide,
A Canadian over here, looking for work?? Quite a lot of Irish go to Canada now looking for work. Little ironic. I can't provide you with any help, only try and FÁS for opportunies. Best of luck with it
