The Careers Service

The Careers Service

The Careers Service is available to all undergraduate and postgraduate DCU students. The team is committed to providing a wide variety of professional services to support you in making the career decisions that are best suited to your qualifications, interests, abilities and aspirations.  Our Careers Advisors work with you at various points in your student journey, whether you have no career plans at present, have some ideas on your career plan, or have specific career goals.

The Careers Service will continue to offer a full service to students and employers during the university closure period.
