It was a busy evening here at the Institute of Education last Thursday, October 24th, as we held our annual Careers Fair. As always it was a busy, lively and engaging evening with great attendance by students and their parents/ guardians.
Third level colleges were very well represented this year in the Exhibition Hall, with most of the major colleges and universities here to chat, answer questions and hopefully give students a real sense of what college life is like.
As always, the careers talks were very well attended, with speakers from a variety of industries giving talks on a range of careers, from Sport Science, to Communications/ Journalism, Engineering, Medicine, Biotechnology and more.
Dr. John Mc Ginnity, Admissions Officer with NUI Maynooth gave a special talk to parents/ guardians of 6th year students on ‘The Transition from 2nd Level to 3rd Level/ A Full Exploration of How the CAO Works”.
The evening was a big success and we received lots of positive feedback from students and parents who attended. We hope that everyone enjoyed the evening and had the opportunity to gain a real insight in to their third level options and possible future careers. Planning is already underway for next year’s event!
