JobBridge is aiming to provide 5,000 internship places to the unemployed over the next two years.
It is part of the Governments 'Jobs Initiative' which will offer 20,900 education, training and work experience places for the unemployed as well as the 'Springboard' initiative which will provide 6,000 places on a range of 200 part-time courses.
The launch was a great success and a step in the right direction for getting Ireland working again.
