Science technology engineering and maths promoted ahead of CAO cut off
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Keep science, technology, engineering and maths courses top of mind as the CAO “change of mind” period closes this weekend on 1 July. That’s the advice from Discover Science & Engineering (DSE), which publishes www.science.ie. Dr Graham Love, Director of DSE and Policy and Communications at Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) said:
“Since the start of this year, 4,000 technology jobs have been announced for Ireland with companies such as Amazon… I congratulate students that have already made the decision to undertake a science, technology or engineering related course at third level and I encourage those who may be filling out their change of mind form this week to consider such courses.”
The CAO announced this year that there has been an 18% increase in the number of applications by school-leavers for STEM courses, indicating growing awareness of the key areas driving the jobs of the future.
Have Respect For Others
By giving respect to others, you receive it in return. In effect this is the Golden Rule in action... and it works in organisations just as well as in life.
What are your Career Interests?
The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, or story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.
