People today can change their career up to seven times during their lifetime. Therefore, career guidance is more important than ever in helping people to initially choose a foundational qualification/Degree/Masters/Doctorate as they further develop their skills, talents and competencies.

When does/should career advice first start? It should start at around the age of 16 when students have completed or are about to complete three years in Post-Primary Education or their Junior Certificate.

At this stage of the young person’s life, the right advice from a professional should be provided, even if the student knows and is sure about what form of career, further education or apprenticeship they wish to pursue.

If the student knows their future ‘income-generating occupation’, propper and correct support and advice  can help them ensure that what they have chosen is the right choice, is indeed realistic and will use their natural talents, skills and competencies.

iCareer – Galway

Our career guidance helps students think about or consider other occupations that they may not have even thought about and could be/maybe a better option. If the student does not know their future ‘income-generating occupation’, then career guidance comes into its element, where the whole career guidance process and experience for the student is at its most effective, where their natural talents, skills and competencies are put on the table and a suitable career, course and/or apprenticeship are explored, discussed, matched and agreed upon.

This whole and complete Career Guidance process and journey of self-discovery, where a realistic job/career is identified, can have a duration of a number of weeks, as students are making key lifetime and foundational decisions. Once students have chosen their initial career choice through Professional Career Guidance, future and further Career advice and help can be sought and availed of as they experience the world of work and possibly change career throughout their lifetime, maybe up to seven times!

‘…Hi Ger, I was with you last summer for some career guidance with my college course. I have completed first year business and I am loving the course. Thanks again for all your help. I just wanted to give you a quick update…’
