Testimonial

“Julie O’Connor, Synergy Careers hosted a series of themed weekly events in May 2020. These events provided Letterkenny Institute of Technology(LYIT) with an opportunity to promote our CAO and Postgraduate/Masters programmes, discuss our scholarships and provide students with details about student life on campus at LYIT. These webinars also provided LYIT with the opportunity to participate in discussions with colleagues from other universities and colleges about the broad range of third-level issues that impact Parents, Teachers, Guidance Counsellors and Prospective Students. The webinars were informative, well-organised and efficiently co-ordinated. Julie has provided a ‘one-stop’ advice platform that supports students, parents and educators to make informed decisions about their third-level choices.”
