Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Focus on your GIS modules in college, pay attention in the lectures and just keep at it. An understanding of GIS is vital for any job as a forester anyway, whether you like GIS or not! Focus on the other modules too of course. I’m using stuff now that I had forgotten we even covered in college, so even the modules that do not seem important or useful to you are worth paying attention to, they’re there for a reason.

Linguistic?
Linguistic
The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

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.
