Career Path – Sample Queries


I have many years experience in the PA / Administration line of work but am strongly considering a career path change. I have not worked since November and have been in a very mixed mind about what to do and would really like to talk to someone professional about my choices / options / CV etc. I have been very successful in my past jobs and my previous employers were very happy with me however I am having great difficulty with my confidence and believing in myself and really feel it would be beneficial to talk to somebody professional and neutral. I am very flexible regarding days and times for meeting.


Dear reader, My name is Cxxx. I’ve recently graduated from Nui Galway with an arts degree. My subjects were Gaeilge and History. At this moment I find that I’m stuck at a crossroad and I’m not exactly sure which path I should take. I’m hoping that after our meeting I could have some direction in my life. I’ve looked at postgradireland but I really am having difficulty. Thank you for your time.


I want to see about what career path is best for me if I need to reskill


Looking for help and advice with Leaving Certificate choices & career path. Thank you.


Hi, I would like to change my career path, i’m a secretary in the hospital for the last 15 years. ive a keen interest in meeting people . i play sports.
I am a 28 year old woman with a BSc in Biochemistry and an MSc in Biotechology, both from UCC. Having worked in the medical devices industry for 4-5 years in the Quality Assurance function, I have decided that this is not the career path I wish to pursue. I am considering a complete career change and would like to talk through same with a professional in order to find some direction going forward.
I have a honours degree and masters in Arts from UCC. I also have a higher diploma in Education from Hibernia College. I have previously worked as a fund accountant (an area that I am not interested in returning to). For the previous four years I have been employed as a primary school teacher. However, I do not feel that my current wage matches what I should be earning in relation to my extensive education and my abilities. I also do not think that teaching offers me the opportunities to satisfy my ambitions. I am hoping to speak to a professional who can advise me on any career paths that might be suitable to me. I want to be involved in an industry that I find interesting and an industry that offers me a satisfactory remuneration package. Furthermore, I want to be involved with a company that offers the opportunities to reach positions and titles of responsibility, thus satisfying my ambitious nature.


I will be receiving my junior cert results this September (2015) and want to get an idea of what career path I want to pursue , and what subjects would be needed for it.


So, if you have any type of career path query, contact the team at or simply complete the make an appointment form, and one of the team will be in touch.
