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 Marie Kinsella-White from McDonald's to give some advice for people considering this job:
|The job that I do is highly specialised and the skills that I am required to have to do my job can only be acquired in our restaurant. However, by taking a job in McDonald's you are opening a career path to use those skills anywhere - the skills you acquire are very transferable. It doesn’t matter where you start, the opportunities are there.|

The B.Sc. in Tourism Marketing is a great start for those wishing to pursue a career in the vibrant, worldwide, travel and tourism industry. The programme delves into the principles of marketing and how they are applied to the national and international tourism sectors.
The B.Sc. in Tourism Marketing degree focusses broadly on business and management subjects and more specifically at the marketing of tourism destinations.
The programme offers business subjects designed for the marketing and management of tourism enterprises such as visitor attractions, destination management companies, tour operators, travel agencies, hotels, conference centres and management bureaux.
European languages are becoming ever-increasingly important in the world of work and therefore students also study one European language.
Students complete a six month internship in the second semester of Year 3. Internships give students an edge when it comes to getting that job in the tourism and marketing industry. Employers place huge value on first hand work experience on top of college education and we ensure that our students have both of these. These are unique networking opportunities to make contacts for careers in the future.
The BSc Tourism Marketing programme offers students the opportunity to engage with tourism and marketing industry through internship in Ireland and abroad. Internships in Europe are supported by the Erasmus + programme.
