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.

We asked Ejiro O'Hare Stratton from Health Service Executive to give some advice for people considering this job:

I would advise having a degree in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. Professional training in nursing is necessary in order to understand patient care and what standards are required to provide quality care in an acute hospital setting.

One would also have to understand the value of planning, implementing and evaluating work practices in order to get the best out of employees. The person coming into the job would need to be patient, able to negotiate and work under pressure, as well as work on their own initiative.

Administrative?
Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

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
