I would advise to any young person to go to college first and/or travelling and gain some life experience as this will help you deal/cope with situations a lot better.

Enterprising?
Enterprising
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Guidance Professionals

Welcome to the Guidance Professionals area of the CareersPortal website.

CareersPortal.ie has been working closely with the guidance community providing web-based tools, resources and training since 2008. Responding to the needs of guidance counsellors working in both second-level and adult guidance is very important to us.

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

CareersPortal partners with both public and private organisations to bring you the most up-to-date career and labour market information. Our unique career Videos allow students and jobseekers listen to people's experiences of working in Ireland and understand how they progressed into their job in terms of their qualifications, skills and experience.

The About Us section provides an overview of all our services and bespoke training programmes and contact details for any questions or queries that you might have.
