All Fifth and Sixth Year students recently attended the Carlow Careers Seminar in the Dolmen Hotel, Carlow, which was organised by the local Guidance Counsellors, with our own Ms O’Looney as Chairperson, for all the schools in the county and beyond. Over fifteen schools attended this careers seminar, which consisted of over 1,200 students attending.
This was a very collaborative, cross-schools community event organised by all the schools’ Guidance Counsellors to promote future planning, careers, colleges, courses, apprenticeships, PLCs and information gathering.
The exhibitors at the Careers Seminar included TCD, UCD, DCU, NUIG, UCC, Maynooth University, UL, IT Carlow, WIT, LIT, DIT, Dundalk IT, Athlone IT, Dunlaoghaire IADT, Cork IT, Carlow Institute of Further Education, Ormonde College, Duiske College, City of Dublin PLCs, ETBs, American College, Dublin Business School, Griffith College, Pulse Sound Engineering, NCI, NCAD, Carlow College, Mary Immaculate College, Pontifical University of Maynooth, St. Angela’s College, SUSI Grants, Qualifax, Careers Portal, EUNICAS, UK Colleges, An Garda Síochána, Irish Defence Forces, Kildalton Agricultural College and Shannon College of Hotel Management.
The students really enjoyed this very informative and educational seminar and would like to thank Ms O’Looney and her colleagues for all of their hard work and organisation.
