EXPLORE YOUR OPTIONS

If you’re not sure what you want to do yet – get started by identifying your skills and strengths, values, interests and personality – these will help you to figure out what career options might suit you best.
Tips from UCD Career Development Centre
  • Take the ‘Profiling for Success’ psychometric tests available through links from www.ucd.ie/careers/students/onlineresources and careersconnect.ucd.ie. There are personality, learning styles and career interests tests, as well as abstract, numerical and verbal reasoning tests.
    NOTE you need to login to your Careers Connect account to obtain the codes necessary for accessing these tests:
    Careers Connect → Home tab → Welcome Section → Online Resources for UCD students
  • Keep an eye on careersconnect.ucd.ie for:
    • Relevant Careers workshops/seminars/activities and employer presentations – and attend them!
    • Jobs and Vacancies.
  • Take our Career Zone self-study online module available via UCD Career Development Centre website for UCD students.
  • Get talking – network and seek advice from anyone who can help; for example your lecturers/tutors, friends and relatives, employers, career & skills consultants, graduates from your course/College – this will help you find out about different jobs and industries.
  • Make an appointment on careersconnect.ucd.ie with a Career & Skills Consultant at the UCD Career Development Centre to discuss/review your application.
