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 Kieran Magee from Teagasc to give some advice for people considering this job:
|Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work. They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.
Education is very important. It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.
The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

Postgraduate courses allow learners to develop their knowledge of a subject to the maximum levels possible, or develop specific skills and expertise in addition to their undergraduate area of study.
Masters degrees and post-graduate diplomas are awarded at Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications. Master degrees in Ireland typically last one (taught courses) or two (research based) years, while Postgraduate diplomas are typically one year.
Doctoral and higher doctorate awards are awarded at Level 10 on the NFQ, and may last several years.
Postgraduate awards are much sought after in the workplace, as candidates have typically developed advanced analytical and systems skills in their chosen career area. Occupations often involve coordinating, training, supervising, or managing the activities of others to accomplish goals. Examples include librarians, lawyers, many medical specialists, wildlife biologists, school psychologists, treasurers, and most scientists.
The ACCA qualification is designed to deliver a broad-based qualification, focusing on the essential skills of accounting, business and finance.

Not only will you have a qualification that is relevant on a global scale, but by having the option to take variant papers, in law and tax, your qualification will be relevant to your local working environment. The ACCA qualification is highly regarded throughout the world and enables you to become a Chartered Certified Accountant, use the designatory letters ACCA after your name and work in any aspect of finance or management in any sector of business.
