Our Services - Third Level Graduates

Your Career

Congratulations on successfully completing your undergraduate degree.  Your values, interests and skills, in combination with certain personality traits, will make some careers especially suitable for you and others not particularly suitable.  We have the skills to help you with the best career choices.  If you have selected a field we can give you the most up-to-date information on graduate recruitment schemes and postgraduate courses and training. 

Identity

A person's identity ceaselessly changes in large and small ways.  Consciously or not, you are always rebuilding yourself.  Before you can make a good career choice you need to be clear about these changes and your current needs/wants.  We can help you mesh them with potential career options.

The Future

With the help of our many tests (e.g., aptitude, personality, interest, values, etc.) and your education to date, we’ll help you map out your career path and the quickest way to get to your goals.  If you are unsure of your next step, we'll help you identify your Career Best-Fit.

Interview

First of all, too much information can hurt.  For example, providing copious amounts of specific information on your previous employers and jobs is not a good idea because the interviewer will see that you could do the same in the future.  Preperation is key.  Examples of helpful preperation activites include: researching the job and the Company; practising interviewing with a friend; taking your time responding and trying to remain calm; asking for clarification if you are unsure of the question; not rambling; having questions ready to ask; etc.  Don't forget to thank the interviewer and to take the time to follow up with a personal thank you note.

Curriculum Vitae

The Curriculum Vitae (CV) has a primary purpose - to show a prospective employer that you have the necessary qualities and qualifications to do the job for which you are applying.  Specifically, you need to show that you have the nesessary skills, experience and personality requirements.  Always remember that a CV is a forward looking document and it is designed to get you interviews, not to give your life history.
