What are your interests?

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.

WorkXperience

CareersPortal provides a number of useful resources that support the delivery of work experience in both schools and colleges of further education. The WorkXperience area of this site has been designed for all those involved in delivering a successful work experience:

Students Registered users can apply for any vacancies published on our workxperience jobs board
Teachers A guide for teachers who may be unfamiliar with running a work experience programme
Parents A guide for parents so they can understand and support their child during the programme
Employers A guide for employers to support them in delivering a quality programme.

To support the programme, we also have available a Diary of Work Experience, which can be used by students to document their experience. This Diary is also very suitable for use as a TY careers project, as it contains a number of additional exercises commonly used in TY. This Diary has also been successfully used for LCVP and FET students.

The Diary of Work Experience is available in both English and Irish versions.
