MY CAREER GUIDANCE is a career and educational guidance service based in Maynooth, Co Kildare.

The service  is tailored to the individual needs of each student.  Through discussion and testing,  students engage in a process where they  build an awareness of their strengths, abilities, interests and motivation.

Students are then given guidance,  tools and techniques that will help them fulfill their potential.
