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.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Free Maths courses online for Leaving Cert students

Free Maths courses online for Leaving Cert students

Griffith College now offer a new comprehensive online resource for Leaving Certificate mathematics (ordinary level) students.

This resource supplements the successful revision classes delivered by Griffith College in Dublin, Cork and Limerick in April. Over 700 students attended these revision sessions.

The days were split into 90 minute sessions. Each session covered a specific topic in its entirety, including all examination questions on that topic since 2000. The sessions were recorded on video and are now available to all students at www.maths.gcd.ie The site contains a complete set of revision notes, summaries and videos for each question topic on the Leaving Certificate Ordinary Level Mathematics. While the site has only been live for a few days, many students throughout the country have individually spent over 10 hours using and re-using the resource.

In providing the online resource in bite-sized chunks, much like a dictionary, Griffith College hopes it will help students to fill in any particular gap they may have in their understanding, while recognising the extensive knowledge and skills they have already mastered. By providing the resource free, it balances the opportunity for all students, regardless of their financial means.
