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 Paul Shortt from Civil and Public Service Jobs to give some advice for people considering this job:
|My current role requires a lot of self-motivation as it is largely autonomous, while colleagues are always on hand to give advice and counsel, the decisions as to how to progress cases or deal with problems are ultimately my call.
The job requires someone who is able to work under pressure, is comfortable with public speaking, is confident, assertive and decisive. These are all skills that can be learned with experience, involvement with organisations in school or university that involve managing workload, organising information and debating would all be useful in developing such skill sets.

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.
Students are introduced to the basics of IT and computer methods. The course teaches useful skills in computer programming and application in the first year.
As part of an Arts degree, this subject is one of three subjects you choose in first year. In second and third year you continue with two of the subjects taken in First Arts. It may be possible to take an extra year studying abroad.
Restricted Entry Subjects: students should note that they may choose only ONE from the following traditional Arts subjects: Beginners’ German, Léann an Aistriúcháin, Legal Studies, Information Technology, Mathematics and Psychology.
Each of the above subjects has restrictions on entry to Second Arts based upon performance in First Arts. Therefore, successful completion of the subject in First Arts may not guarantee progression to Second Arts in that subject. For this reason, the College does not permit any student to register for more than ONE restricted entry subject.
Information Technology in First Arts has a class limit of 120 places, offered in the first week of registration. In order to progress to Second Arts, students will be required to pass the programme module (CT112) at 40% or higher in addition to passing the subject overall.
