Careers & Counselling Service
The Careers and Counselling Service is a free, integrated and confidential service available to all full-time, registered students and apprentices while attending the Institute. The Service is committed to supporting and encouraging students to reach their academic and personal potential during their time at the Institute. The Service offers Career Guidance, Educational Guidance and Personal Counselling.
The integrated Careers and Counselling Service operates predominately on an appointment basis, and is located on the second floor of the Student Centre, Bishopstown Campus.
The Service is also available to students of the other CIT campuses.
The Service is committed to supporting and encouraging students to reach their academic and personal potential and offers:
- Career Guidance
- Educational Guidance
A number of the careers services are delivered through class presentations and group workshops. The service organises visits to the Institute by employers, informs students of vacancies and organises other careers related activities such as seminars on interview technique and CV preparation.
A range of guidance services such as one-to-one discussions, study skills seminars, stress management sessions and other activities are available to individual students and to groups. The Service also has an Information Room where students can access information themselves (both 'take away' and reference materials) e.g. occupational files, employer files, undergraduate and postgraduate information, jobs file, application forms - employers/courses, cv/interview tips, study/exam skills and counselling information.
The Service advertises on its website all job vacancies received. The Service also facilitates employer presentations during the academic year.
