Guide to Careers
Career Directions can help you explore your career options in 2 ways; you can access the careers database or alternatively use the careers matching programme.
The Career Directions Database allows you to view all careers from A to Z order, together with detailed information about each career, such as aspects and activities of the work; personal qualities and skills; pay and opportunities; entry routes and training; qualifications; and adult opportunities. The search can be refined through the 14 categories of work, from managing and influencing to nature and the natural world for example.
The Career Directions Matching Programme can identify suitable careers based on your interests and qualifications. To use the matching program, you will be asked to log on as a user and answer a series of questions before your suggested careers are shown. The programme caters for all occupational levels, from professional/managerial careers usually requiring 3rd level degrees or post-graduate qualifications, to careers with little formal training and requiring no qualifications.
