Realist?

Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

Guidance Professionals

Welcome to the Guidance Professionals area of the CareersPortal website.

Since 2008, CareersPortal.ie has been working closely with guidance counsellors to provide the most up-to-date careers, education and labour market information, tools and resources. CareersPortal also partners with key stakeholders including employers, state bodies and education providers to ensure information is current and reflects emerging employment and educational opportunities for people of all ages.

REACH+ is a senior cycle guidance programme for students and second-level guidance counsellors and MyFuture+ is our newly launched on-line career management resource for adult guidance professionals to support their clients and learners.

This area provides useful career resources, information and self-assessment tools for use in guidance practice. The menu on the left contains specific information for guidance counsellors working in 2nd level, further and higher education and private practice. 

Career guidance tools and resources relevant to all guidance providers are located at the top of the page as shortcut icons including: our popular career Interest Profiler and other features to create a unique and personalised on-line career file. Additional icons will bring you directly to our new CourseFinder, 33 Sectors or industry profiles, our Occupational database that profiles nearly 1,000 jobs and live job search features, and a new section dedicated to Apprenticeships
