Employer graduate materials or occupational profiles are rarely sufficient in themselves to enable students to find out about a career with confidence. Talking to people who work in the field they are considering can bring it alive and help them to judge how they would fit in. Students also learn from the experience of others what employers are looking for. There are a number of initiatives to which we invite you to contribute. We would be very grateful if you would agree to work with us.
Join CAS LinkedIn Group and connect with TCD students, graduates and Employers. Do consider connecting with TCD students who request to connect with you. The student will appreciate any advice or support that you share in finding work in your sector or geographic location.
Students learn a lot from graduates' experiences. We would be delighted to publish a blog on a topic you are interested in sharing. Topics could include: your successful job search, what you wished you had known in your final year, your experience of finding work or postgraduate study abroad, your transition from postgraduate study to the workplace.
If you would like to discuss contributing to the CAS blog please email Careers@tcd.ie or phone +353 1 8961721.
