I would advise them to give it a go, it doesnít mean you have to work there long term. You must know how to speak a language other than your mother tongue reasonably well as a good proficiency is essential. Itís also important to know and understand the cultural diversity that makes up the European Union. Our internships are a great chance to come for a short period to determine where your interests lie and taste the experiences. Starting out your career path with the EU gives you a really good foundation of insider knowledge of how the EU works and is so useful professionally even if you donít plan on working there forever. It is also important for young Irish people to consider moving to countries that are not English speaking and working for the EU would be very useful to your long term career.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
