Rush for 25 cinema jobs
IN a sign of the times, almost 1,000 people have applied for fewer than 25 jobs at a new cinema -- many of them over-qualified.
Gorey cinema manager Eugene Tobin said he was 'flummoxed' by the number of applications at the Co Wexford venue.
"We received 939 applications and we have between 20 and 25 jobs on offer. We had applications from people with PhDs, master's degrees, from accountants, from all walks of life."
While there are some top positions, the majority are for general cinema duties.
