Being an Engineer is a great career choice. It offers so many opportunities both in Ireland and world-wide. Most positions will have terrific travel opportunities after a few years experience under your belt, and if you choose you course carefully your qualification will be recognised by employers all over the globe. Also an engineering qualification will open doors into management roles if that is your preferred career choice, but the reverse is not the case (if you do a course outside of engineering, you will probably not be able to branch off into engineering a few years after graduating).

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.

112 Jobs created at New McDonalds in Naas

"What we are absolutely passionate about is that everybody that comes to work at McDonald’s will be able to learn great workplace skills and great life skills".

The new McDonald's in the Monread area of Naas has hit the ground running and part of the reason for that is the fine service provided by the swathes of people employed in the restaurant.

Speaking at the official opening of the new store this morning, Managing Director for Ireland, Adrian Crean revealed just how much investment was undertaken in opening the store.

"This restaurant has a total investment of over €4.5 million, employing 112 people and significantly contributing to the local community in which we are part of. To the whole team, our heartiest congratulations," he said.

A variety of different people from all backgrounds have been employed in the store, and he believes that this will form a good working environment.

"For many of those people it’s their first job, McDonald’s is their introduction as they start their working life. It’s their first job or maybe their job while they’re studying. It may be a job while they are minding their kids and their families or it’s a career."

"What we are absolutely passionate about is that everybody that comes to work at McDonald’s will be able to learn great workplace skills and great life skills. This is a great team environment."

Owner operator Sean Quirke mirrored the opinions of his colleague, stating that McDonald's is a place where careers can be built, citing the career of Business Manager Kamila Jansova.

"We always say you’re in charge of your own career. Kamila came in quite a few years ago as a crew member and she worked her ass off and performed at the top level at everything and therefore she has taken great steps, and as a business manager I know we’re going to turn out an excellent store here," he said.
