Don’t mean to be negative but it’d be all well and good if this number of jobs came up on a monthly basis.
Unfortunately not the case.
Wonder how many ‘pledges’ will be kept. FG pledged things.

    You are dead right … Pledges are NOT jobs . How many real time permanent wage paying jobs will materialise ?

    This initiative Is a big joke , a tease , to convince the job seekers into believing that some one cares and is doing something.
    I don’t mean to be negative either .But I am sceptical .
    Who is behind this Quango,eh sorry ”initiative” ? I could just as easily say that I could have a job for 4 people here to lanscape my garden , I pledge that …………………
    But I have no monet to pay yet, When I get a few bob together I will remember you…..
    Give me peace………!!!

    Aydo and Eileen, you are correct in your observation that pledges are not the same as jobs. Hireland has been up and running for less than two weeks, so it is not unusual that what you are seeing are just pledges at this point. The next step is to follow up on pledges from employers and keep track of how many have materialized into actual jobs.

    Eileen, if you are curious about who is involved in this initiative, you can easily find this information on the Hireland website at http://www.hireland.ie/about/whose-involved/ and http://www.hireland.ie/supporter/. I hope this answers your question.
