Explore your career options

Students exploring their options

Before you make any big decisions about your future it is important that you fully explore the range of options and opportunities open to you. This can help to ensure that you don’t end up finding out that the pathway you’ve chosen isn’t what you expected and not right for you.

There are lots of ways in which the team in UCD Career Development Centre can help you to make informed decisions about next steps; whether that’s finding a graduate job, doing further study or setting up your own business. Use the links on the left-hand menu to learn more about how we can help and navigate our online resources.

We've created a YouTube playlist of videos by careerplayer, gradireland and various employers on different career areas, which can help you get an insight into working in an industry and how to get there.
