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 Sarah Lynch from Bank of Ireland to give some advice for people considering this job:
I would encourage anyone who was considering a role in HR to get a HR qualification and to become a member of the CIPD.
Whilst these are not essential requirements for all starter roles in HR, they will be extremely beneficial when trying to progress from there.

The DT175 BSc (Honours) Architectural Technology is a studio-based programme. Studio provides a structured setting in which the student is exposed to a variety of teaching and learning experiences.
Project work is undertaken against the background of lectures, critiques, one to one tutorials, seminars, group work and construction skills classes.
Technical Design Studio provides a focus for the development of skills in three-dimensional problem solving. These skills include freehand drawing, hard line mechanical drawing and model making.
Studio project work also allows the development of skills in Building Information Modelling (BIM) to produce 3D digital models and 2D working drawings.
The studio format offers flexibility for students to attend project related site visits and field trips away from the college environment, thereby widening their understanding of the context of their project work.
In studio, students have unrestricted access to a dedicated workspace and work alongside one another for long periods of time, both during timetabled contact hours and beyond. Studios are equipped with both manual drawing facilities and PCs, allowing students to carry out their project work using a variety of media and approaches.
The programme includes work placement in Semester 1 of Year 3.
