Here is what one young College graduate had to say:
‘I now have my new job of choice’
Fidelma was instrumental in helping me gain full-time employment after completing my degree in Product Design (UL). Through her interview preparation and extensive network of contacts, her willingness to recommend me to potential employers and employment agencies, she provided me with some valuable opportunities.Her continuous support and encouragement thereafter gave me the confidence to succeed and get employed in a fantastic company in the medical device sector which was my ideal choice.

Likewise with new immigrant to Ireland, Juan Navarro:
‘I was employed in 8 days after working with her’
Being coached by Dr. Fidelma Healy was an honour. She not only helped me with finding a great job, she also instructed me throughout the process and taught me what real confidence is. I was new to Ireland. If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't be employed in just 8 days!
Juan Navarro, Galway
After a setback or career disappointment, some people feel doomed. This need not be the case -
Job loss: ‘I got the help I needed to re-build my confidence and apply again’
I lost my job quite unexpectedly and it shook me to the core. I began to doubt my every move. I couldn't handle rejection at all. I met Fidelma at a course and she told me how coaching had helped her following a career transition. Having completed some psychometric tests, I was relieved to read the reports that clearly recognised my strengths. I could see that I still had very definite strengths but that I needed help to re-build my self-esteem. The whole experience helped my greatly. It gave me the courage to apply again. I would recommend Fidelma's analysis and guidance.

Successful Studying: Towards Becoming an Independent Learner is a 20 page Student booklet designed by Fidelma Healy Eames, PhD. It provides a menu of activities that supports the work of our Study Skills & Mindset courses at second-level, based on our book 'Switching on for Learning: A Student Guide to Exam & Career Success'.
Written by Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames & Ms. Sara Hannafin, this text is based on the premise that students learn differently. Beginning with a chapter on helping you to figure out how you learn best, it provides you with a range of strategies and mindset approaches to make your study and learning more effective. It meets the 'learning to learn' intentions of the curriculum.
As parents our intention is to give our children "roots" and give them "wings". Strong roots to help them believe in themselves and to give them a good start in life. Wings to help them set out on their own and become independent.
This journey is not always plain sailing for every child or young person. Some benefit from individual help from time to time. Study & Careers believes in the innate talent and uniqueness of every child. It knows that timely help can enable your learner to overcome challenges they face along the way. To do so, it offers courses for you the parent and one-to-one private consultations to support your student.
