January is the most popular month for job-hunting, with career progression featuring on many a list of new year resolutions. And according to Monster, today, the first Wednesday of January, is traditionally the biggest job-search day of the entire year. With so much competition, it makes sense to put a special strategy in place - and National College of Ireland is here to help you do just that.

We have lots of helpful careers tips and resources on the blog, so we've rounded them up here for you in one handy place:
