Hi Ger, hope all is well with you. Just wanted to let you know that I am really enjoying the new job. I was instantly given a huge amount of freedom as well as a lot of responsibility which suits me down to the ground. Thanks again for all your help in getting it. Take care…

Why should you choose iCareer to help you identify and realise your ideal Job / Career / Third Level Course…?

That’s a great question, and one you should definitely ask before deciding. Rather than me telling you all the reasons why I think I’m a good fit for you, listen to the people who we have already helped, just like you below, who have worked with me and their experiences working with iCareer and if this is the kind of reaction you want after you have met us, contact me through any of these methods: Email: gercolleran@icareer.ie | Telephone: 091 388 000

Hi Ger, just to let you know that I got my first choice – Science in NUI Galway. Thank you for all your help and support…

Aisling (September 2020)

Ger, just to let you know that Neil got his Mechanical & Polymer Engineering Course in Athlone IT. Thanks again for everything. We are delighted…

Marguerite (September 2020)

Hi Ger, Oisín here. I started in GMIT last Thursday doing Business Level 8, so far so good, thank you for all your help! – Oisín (Student – September 2019)

Hi Ger, I just wanted to let you know that our daughter secured job offers from all of the ‘Big 4’, namely PWC, Ernst & Young, KPMG and Deloitte. You may remember that you helped her with her Job Applications, CV’s and Interview Skills. We did not expect this from her. She chose PWC earlier this year and is very happy there. Thanks Ger, you worked a miracle for her and indeed us.

Colleen (Natasha’s Mum – September 2017)

Good evening Ger! Thank you so much for meeting with me, I’m really glad we met. I definitely know what I’m going to do now, it was definitely worthwhile. I really appreciate the encouraging words. I will definitely keep in contact. All the best

Juan-Wian (April 2017),

Hi Ger, I hope you are well. I want to thank you very much for all your help and encouragement for Donal. He and I greatly appreciate your attention and continued interest, well above the call of duty. I think Donal was in touch on the email to let you know of his good news on the job front in Australia. He is currently providing information to help process a Visa. You should receive a small token of our appreciation in the mail over the coming days, just a very small gesture to say ‘thanks’ for all you did. Again, many thanks and best regards, Colman…


Brian is getting so much out of meeting you Ger, thanks very much again

Stephen (Parent of Brian – Yeats College, Galway – February 2015),

Ger, a huge thank you for yesterday, CAO application all done on line today and both happy with their selections. I don’t think we’d have been able to do it quite so well and easily without your input. Thank you sincerely and I’ll be in touch again

Rose (Parent of Eleanor & Conor – Gort Community School – January 2015),

Delighted that Conor met you. What you do is great for young people. He is a different person now, knowing his ideal career and third level course to make it a reality, thanks Ger

Stephen (Parent of Conor – Calasantius College, Oranmore – July 2014),

Worked with Ger for eight weeks to begin with, I was very unmotivated but, after a session with Ger I was focused and study orientated. He pointed me in the right direction in terms of study plan and college course choice. He was very professional and believed in me. I got my course and couldn’t be happier

Ronan (Calasantius College, Oranmore – September 2013),

Thank you Ger for your help in helping me choose a career and then a course. I can now focus on my Leaving Certificate knowing that I know what to do afterwards –

Niall (Student from CBS Roscommon – July 2012),

I am so grateful to iCareer for helping my daughter Olivia sort herself out and know what she wants to do after completing her exams. Your professionalism and informality made the experience great for us and I highly recommend your services to any parent who is worried about their teenager when it comes to third level education and career choice…thank you very much Ger

Martina (Parent of Ciara – January 2011),

Helping me choose a career and complete my CAO form was great for me. I just was not sure what I wanted to do. Now I know and it feels great to know. Thanks Ger

Tomás (‘The Bish’, Galway – October 2010),

Just a little note to express my gratitude for the help that you have given my two boys. Even after the initial meeting both express the view that there were more confident and were convinced that you could help them get their first real job. As it turned out Niall got a “first” on his course in NCI and I think one of this tutors may have made a recommendation on his behalf as he got a job within two to three weeks of the results coming out.  Conor on the other hand really benefited from your coaching and is currently on top of the world in his new position.  I would highly recommend you to any of my friends who are looking for similar coaching for themselves or their children.

Thank you,



Hi Ger, “I just wanted to update you on my son Mark since he availed of your services on the run up to his CAO choices last year. You might remember that you directed him towards Law and Accounting in UL as a first choice – which I think it is fair to say, came as a surprise to both Mark and ourselves. Well – I am delighted to report that he got his first choice and he started in UL a few weeks back. He absolutely loves it Ger – the criminal law aspect has really got him excited and despite not having sat Accountancy in the Leaving Cert – he finds the Accounting side easy enough so far (just like you said he would, due to his strengths in Business Studies). Anyhow, all I really wanted to do is say a big Thank You for an excellent service and for shining some very good light on the road ahead for Mark – Your service was a God Send! and so far it looks like, you hit the nail right on the head – as regards the most suitable course for Mark – thank you for that. I will definitely be recommending you – whenever I can – I believe one of my friends sons has already contacted and is finding the service great. Hope all is well with you and yours and the very best of luck with your business – I have no doubt you will continue to grow… kind regards”


My son Brian was going through a difficult period in his life during Transition Year. His condition was not medically related, but was more around personal development, health, well-being and a career future. Ger worked with Brian on a 1: 1 for 3 sessions over 2-3 weeks; I was surprised with the change in him and his new confident focus and approach to school and his future career


“I had completed a three year course in interior design after finishing my Leaving Certificate. Half way in to the course, I realized that this was not for me. I decided to finish the course as difficult as it was, but I knew I did not want to work in the area. Ger worked with me over 2 meetings from which I found my ideal career and we developed related training plans to make it a reality – Third Level Career Guidance Teacher.


After completing my Leaving Certificate, I trained and worked as a mechanic (upon the advise of my Career Guidance Teacher). This was not my ideal career at all. I needed help! iCareer and Ger helped me to reevaluate my situation and put a career plan on paper. I plan to return to education and commence a course in Mechanical Engineering so as to plan a career in engineering in the medical device industry


I was completing my CAO form when I struck a wall. I didn’t know what to choose as a third level course. I went on line and googled career planning for young people and found iCareer. Ger was great in helping me to initially identify my career field and then work back to identify what third level course would match this field, but also give me variety and choice for other careers in the future


As a parent, my daughter was having difficulty in choosing what subjects to choose for Leaving Certificate. I heard about Ger and iCareer through my sister who had a similar experience with her son. I arranged to meet Ger with my daughter. They had 2 sessions together which were very beneficial and worthwhile. It is great to have someone help you make decisions
