Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Eileen Faherty from Construction Industry Federation to give some advice for people considering this job:
|My advice would be that if you are not afraid of hard work that construction can be a very rewarding industry. It is a constantly changing industry which is interesting to work in.
To be a QS the main values would be to be interested in dealing with financial data and be happy to work as part of a team. Having an interest in construction generally outside of the commercials will also help as it keeps you interested in the projects you are working on apart from what they cost.

Undergraduate awards typically reflect three to five years of study after secondary school and include Ordinary (Level 7) and Honours Bachelor Degrees and Higher Diplomas (Level 8's).
Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the HETAC or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others. Examples include accountants, sales managers, computer programmers, teachers, chemists, environmental engineers, criminal investigators, and financial analysts.
This course is designed to produce graduates who can function as creative managers in the creative and cultural industry sector both nationally and internationally.
By sharing classes with students from practice-oriented classes in art, design, music and media, learners on this programme will also, crucially, gain a practical sense of creative practitioners, and their values, motivations and culture. Graduates essentially will be able to look into, understand, and work between professionals involved in creative development and those responsible for commercialising the results.
The programme is a three-year modularised programme. It is an interdisciplinary programme consisting of existing modules drawn from across the College of Arts and Tourism and from the School of Marketing within the College of Business.
In Year 1, students will take a series of core modules and will be allowed to take one module from each of the following four areas: (i) Art and Design, (ii) Music and Drama, (iii) Media (iv) Languages.
In Year 2, students will develop a more critical approach to the theory of cultural industries and continue to develop their skills in the practical area of managing a cultural enterprise. Students will also take modules from Art and Design, Music and Drama, Media and one module from either Languages or one of the above areas.
In Year 3, the emphasis in the first semester will be on developing the students’ knowledge and skills in managing the complex relationship that all cultural enterprises have with the state, mass media, general public and funding agencies. Students will also take advanced modules offered by Art, Design, Media, Language and Music. In Semester 2 students will have a choice of completing a practical industry project through Real World Learning or writing a dissertation on a topic in the area of creative and cultural industries.
This course will take place in Grangegorman Campus from 2014
