About us - The Job Club
If you are unemployed the Job Club will be of interest to you.
The �Job Club�, established in 2000, aims to develop and market the strengths of Job Seekers with a view to placing them in employment. This is a joint initiative between DSP ( � the Funding body and Donegal Local Development Company Ltd (D.L.D.C.) � the Sponsor. The Job Club is based in the Tirhugh Resource Centre, and outreach work is undertaken throughout Donegal in various locations such as Letterkenny, Donegal Town, Killybegs, Lifford, Stranorlar and St Johnston. Job Clubs have been in operation in Ireland since 1995 and each county now has it�s own.
The Job Club is intended to form part of an integrated approach to the needs of the unemployed. It consists of formal group sessions with structured individual support given to each participant for as long as it takes to get a job.
The duration of the formal sessions varies and is typically from three to four weeks for approximately 3-4 hours per day. During the Job Club participants work at developing practical skills required to secure a job.

Training areas include, Curriculum Vitae Preparation, Letter Writing, Career and Job Planning, Targeting and Sourcing Jobs, Interview Preparation and Techniques and basic I.C.T.
