Some simple issues that can delay your Brilliant Career:

  • You may be still unsure of what career you want to pursue.
  • You may be experiencing a small (and very common) dip in self-confidence following graduation.
  • There are too many choices.
  • You are trying to build a career in an area where it’s difficult to get a foothold into solid networks of expertise and advice.
  • Further training, specialisation or education is required.
  • Though you have a good qualification, you’re still not sure what your best employability skills are.
  • CV, Covering letter and other aspects of your Career Profile are not getting the desired response.

If you have found the right job with the right company, you can enjoy your work, quickly progress your career and achieve substantial rewards and recognition. However it’s also quite common for graduates to find themselves in a dead end job to begin with. This can be demoralising and it’s tempting to eye one’s peers with envy as they appear to progress rapidly. At South Dublin Careers, we help you to find your own path to success, at the pace that is right for you.

Many students like to focus on studies while at university, choosing to give career decision-making and planning the serious focus required once studies are complete. That’s where we can help.
