Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Reply date for CAO Round One offers is this Friday (23 August) at 5.15pm

Candidates have until 5.15.pm tomorrow to accept their Round 1 CAO offer.

Reply date for CAO Round One offers is this Friday (23 August) at 5.15pm

The reply date by which CAO applicants must accept a Round One offer is this Friday, 23 August at 5:15pm. The Central Applications Office is reminding applicants that they must accept by the reply date if they wish to secure a place.

To date, over 37,000 Round One offers have been accepted since they were issued to 51,513 applicants last Thursday.

Applicants who are unsure about whether to accept an offer have been offered the following advice by CAO communications officer, Eileen Keleghan: “If you received a Round One offer, and if you choose to accept this offer, you must do so by this Friday at 5.15pm. If you don’t accept by this date your offer will lapse.

 “It is important to note that if you have received a lower preference offer you can accept this offer and it will not prevent you from receiving an offer of a course higher up on your courses list in a later offer round if a place becomes available and you are deemed eligible.

“Applicants should consider their current offer as potentially the only offer they may receive”, she added.

Applicants who received an offer on both their Level 8 and level 7/6 lists are reminded that they can only accept one offer (per offer round).

Round Two offers will be available to view on the CAO website from 10am on Wednesday, 28 August. The reply date by which Round Two Offers must be accepted is Friday, 30 August at 5:15pm. Offers are then issued on a weekly basis up to late-September for all remaining places.

CAO applicants who are unhappy with the course they have been offered, or those who have not received any offers, may wish to check the ‘Available Places’ facility on the CAO website where almost 200 courses are currently advertised.
