Career Centre Events/Guest Speakers

Hearing about jobs and study from people out in the working world really helps students with their decision making.

The Career Department runs a number of events, including inviting regular speakers into the Career Department over lunchtime to talk about courses and career opportunities available. This includes all the universities, many private providers, some apprenticeship organisations, the Defence Forces and the Police. 

Check the Guest Speakers list below to find out about the speakers that have been booked each term.  This list is updated regularly. 

Also keep an eye on the general career events like open days and information evening that happen regularly at different institutions.  This information is usually available on the websites of the institutions.

The Career Department also organises tertiary providers to come to various events in the school and organises trips to various providers as required.
