Featured Advice
What are your interests?



Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Adult Guidance

There are two key areas of the CareersPortal site that can support your adult guidance practice with individuals and groups. 

The Adult Learner area provides information for you to assist individuals who are thinking of returning to learning or upskilling by helping them understand the different course options, their levels, entry as mature students and progression from Further Education to Higher Education. Information on upskilling courses for jobseekers, student finance including available funding is included. Understanding how qualifications from abroad compare to Ireland is available in International Comparisions.

This area contains a number of resources and tools to help people along their journey to new employment. Clients seeking employment will find many of the resources here to be of value.

The jobseeker area is designed to bring together in one place, all of the available and relevant sources of information and supports specific to job seekers, in an easy to navigate menu system.

Jobseekers can be shown how to use these tools to inform their job research. The section additionally allows them to explore current job vacancies and to access daily live career news updates.

The jobseeker section is interconnected across up skilling, retraining, volunteering and return to learning opportunities, alongside a comprehensive occupations database and informative jobholder interviews.
