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.

Welcome to the Guidance Professionals area of the CareersPortal website.

REACH+ is a senior cycle guidance programme for students and second-level guidance counsellors and MyFuture+ is our newly launched on-line career management resource for adult guidance professionals to support their clients and learners.

This area provides useful career resources, information and self-assessment tools for use in guidance practice. The menu on the left contains specific information for guidance counsellors working in 2nd level, further and higher education and private practice. 

Career guidance tools and resources relevant to all guidance providers are located at the top of the page as shortcut icons including: our popular career Interest Profiler and other features to create a unique and personalised on-line career file. Additional icons will bring you directly to our new CourseFinder, 33 Sectors or industry profiles, our Occupational database that profiles nearly 1,000 jobs and live job search features, and a new section dedicated to Apprenticeships
