Guiding you towards a path that is right for you
Are you at college and finding that your course is not all you had hoped it would be? Don’t worry – you are not alone.
Many people find themselves in this position for a variety of reasons. For example, often we become so immersed in study for the Leaving Certificate that we don’t feel we have the time to find out about colleges and courses that would suit us.
Whether you decide to switch to a different course within your existing college, apply to another third-level institution or decide to pursue a different career route outside of third level, Denise can help you to make these important decisions by guiding you through the following process.
How does the career guidance process work?
Step 1: Completion of Assessments
Before your first meeting with Denise, you will complete four assessments. All of the assessments are completed online and include an interest assessment, a personality profile, an assessment in career motivation and an assessment in intelligences and skills. The reason we do these assessments is because to be happy and successful in a career, a person needs to be interested in it, have a number of personality traits that are suited to that particular career, have the motivation to do it and have the developed skill for that career.
Step 2: First Session with Denise (Duration 2 hours)
The first part of this session involves an initial discussion in which Denise will ask you questions about some of the following: educational background and experience; work experience and your current career situation; hobbies/interests/what you like to do in your spare time and much more.
In the second part of this session, Denise will give you detailed feedback on the assessments that you completed. She will also show you how to use the best tools available for career and course research.
Step 3: Second Session with Denise (Duration 1 hour)
Having analysed your results, along with all that was discussed in your first session, Denise will discuss careers and courses with you that she has identified as being a very good match for you.
Final Stage of Process
Within 14 days, you will receive a comprehensive Career Guidance Report outlining both Denise’s findings and recommendations on suitable careers for you.
