"REAL Career Guidance provided me with invaluable feedback as I developed my application for a position in a different industry.  Sallyann has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the Education Sector, and her expertise helped me to reposition my skills, accomplishments and personal strengths to engage my prospective employer.  I have since been offered the job!  Thanks for your help Sallyann!"

"I was completely overwhelmed in 6th year with exam preparation and was so unsure of which direction to take.  Although I did better than expected in my Leaving Certificate and achieved enough points for my chosen degree I still felt very uncertain.  Sallyann was patient and worked with me and my parents to explore my true interests, abilities, hopes and dreams.  With her support I decided to defer my degree place and pursue a QQI Level 5 course in Applied Psychology at a college of further education.  This was a fantastic way to try out my subject area without committing to a degree and also to prepare me for future academic success.  I started my BSc. in Psychology in September and have hit the ground running as a result.  I am so grateful to Sallyann for all her guidance and signposting.  I would highly recommend her to students of all ages."

review by early school leaver

Having left school early I doubted my ability to study at degree level.  Sallyann helped to build my self-belief and confidence as well as teaching me how to approach academic writing, study and exams.  I am now in 2nd year of a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I'm already planning a postgraduate course! Don't allow your negative self-talk to keep you 'stuck' - seek professional help from REAL Career Guidance so you can be the best you can be."

review by industry apprentice

"I wasn't overly academic at school and I knew that the formal college route wasn't for me.  But what instead?  I decided to seek advice on  the alternatives open to me.  I liked the sound of earn-as-you-learn options and after a series of profiling and interest tests my natural flair for numbers was apparent.  I opted for an Accounting Technician Apprenticeship where I now work 4 days a week with my employer and attend college once a week.  I get paid a wage, my college fees are fully funded and I will leave with a QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Accounting at the end of my 2-year apprenticeship.  I am already talking to Sallyann about progression into a Finance degree afterwards!  I really  appreciate all her encouragement and support in helping me to  achieve my goal.  I 1000% recommend this career guidance service."
