Be a Resource for Students

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.

 

LinkedIn

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.

Blogging

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.

More information on Mentoring can be found here.

Alumni Network

The Trinity community includes our students, alumni and friends. Your alumni connection is for life and with over 100,000 alumni across the globe, there is a great resource for networking and staying in touch with people who have shared the Trinity experience.

 

Online Graduate Stories

  • We also hold graduate stories at the Careers Advisory Service website.
  • The purpose is similar to the database initiative except that you will not be contactable by students, and your details are on the web.
  • If you wish to contribute in this way please complete the Graduate Story form online, by email to careers@tcd.ie or by post. You may wish to include your company logo and/or your photo.

 

Careers Events

  • Trinity Careers Week is held annually in Michaelmas Term. As part of the week long programme of events, alumni participate in one-hour sector-specific career panel discussions, e.g. Media, Film, Publishing, Radio, Journalism, NGO & Development etc.
  • Careers Evenings are organised in collaboration with the Schools and Departments, and involve 4-6 former students speaking informally about the career choices they have made, their experiences since leaving College and advise students on preparing for the world of work. A broad range of graduate jobs are represented.

Penultimate and final year students are specifically invited but all students are welcome to attend.

If you are interested in participating in such an event please let us know at careers@tcd.ie and we will be in contact with you.

What’s On?

You've guided me through some fairly scary decisions and situations as I've moved towards finding a career for myself... We're enormously lucky to have you as a Careers Adviser in Trinity and you've had a really positive effect on my life. Many thanks.
