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 Frank Keenaghan from An Garda Síochána to give some advice for people considering this job:

I would say to knuckle down and achieve the best results possible in the Leaving Certificate. Then I would suggest availing of any college courses on offer bearing in mind that there is ample time to make career choices. Carry out your own enquiries and see what exactly is on offer.

Do not join An Garda Síochána to become a Detective - this takes time and one must demonstrate a propensity for crime work before being appointed a Detective. There are other career opportunities within this organisation so it’s important to have an open mind.

Obtain or stay in employment while waiting to be called for medicals and other tests. All work provides life experience and opportunities. My first job equipped me in the areas of social skills and personnel management. Don't drift and take the easy option. Make a decision, set the bar high and go for it.

It is a very rewarding job that I particularly enjoy and derive great job satisfaction from. Confidence, social skills and the ability to network are important.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.
