This week I am joined by Brian Mooney to discuss how school leavers can plan their career and the kind of steps in that direction that can be taken during their final year in school. Brian is a guidance counsellor in Oatlands College, the editor of the Education Matters Yearbook 2015-2016 and a columnist with the Irish Times. He is also the author of Start Your Career Journey Here, a Revise Wise publication.
