Careers Exhibition

IRD Duhallow holds an annual Careers Exhibition, through the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP)

IRD Duhallow’s Youth and Education Working Group hosts an Careers Exhibition which sees students from across Duhallow gather in the Edel Quinn Hall. On this day young people are facilitated to explore different education and training options with a broad range of Third Level Universities, Institutes of Technology, Agricultural Colleges and Further Level Training Colleges in attendance.

Representatives from these educational bodies are able to answer the many different queries the students had in relation to the entry requirements and course specific details. A Career Guidance Counsellor is also there on the day to provide guidance to the students on different career paths and subject choices. The event is usually held in early October.

Choosing a career is one of the most important life decisions that Young People have to make at an early stage in life. It’s about so much more than deciding what you will do to make a living. Over our lifetime we spend approximately 31 1/2 years of our lives working, from the beginning of our careers until retirement. The importance of selecting a career with which we are satisfied cannot be overemphasised. This annual event is an important date in the calendar for many students across the region to assist with their career choices.
