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 Richard Storey from McDonald's to give some advice for people considering this job:

The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland said, “The decision by Indeed to locate its EMEA headquarters in Dublin is great news for Ireland and it adds significantly to our reputation as a hub for new businesses. Attracting high-growth companies to invest in Ireland has been a specific target of IDA Ireland since January 2010. Since then there has been a very strong flow of this type of business coming to Ireland, with 35 investments won in the last two years. On behalf of IDA Ireland I wish Indeed every success with this operation and offer the full support of IDA as the company grows its base in Ireland.”
