Trinity College’s Careers Week 16-20 October, 2006
Posted on: 16 October 2006
“Trinity College students have a wide variety of career options available to them, both in Ireland and internationally. Trinity’s Careers Week aims to address these diverse opportunities by providing information and advice on a broad spectrum of careers,” said the Director of the Careers Advisory Service, Mr Sean Gannon at today’s launch (October 16) of the TCD Careers Week 2006 which is supported by the TCD Students’ Union.
The week-long programme comprises career sector talks, including advice from TCD graduates as well as workshops by careers advisers which will aid students to develop application and interview skills. A highlight of the week will also include the Graduate Employer Fair which is organised by Trinity in partnership with other third-level institutions and which will be held in the RDS on Tuesday October, 17.
The Career Sector talks are particularly useful for students. They give students an insight into the career paths pursued by Trinity graduates and an overview of different sectors. This year’s programme includes a wider range of career areas such as IT and working in Europe. Other new elements of the programme include a session on entrepreneurship which will highlight some of Trinity’s successful campus companies. It will also include input from some of Trinity’s graduates such as Eibhlin Curley of the Dublin City Enterprise Board and Eamonn Fallon of Daft.ie
“It is intended to reach out to an even greater of number of students through this year’s expanded programme,” concluded TCD Careers Adviser, Sarah Ryan.
