Career Readiness

Plan and explore

If you are still undecided what to do, explore options and plan your future. 

If you are undecided what direction you want to take it would be useful to start to explore career options.  The Careers Team will help you to work through your options and start to formulate a career plan, which will help to focus you and make choices that will help you to achieve this.  We will help you to understand your strengths and areas for development, your career motivators, the options available to you and the necessary steps to take to achieve your career goals.

Help and support available to you:

Book an Appointment with a Careers Advisor

If you are unsure about your career options, you are advised to book an appointment with a Careers Adviser to give your search a focus. An employer can easily spot applications from students just looking for any job, as your heart won’t be in it. To book an appointment, call into a Careers Zone or alternatively phone us on 0151 231 3719/2048.
