Consider your options carefully. It is likely that you are expecting top grades in your Leaving Certificate if you are considering pharmacy as a career so there will be plenty of doors open to you. Make sure you do plenty of work experience in different areas of pharmacy and if it is healthcare you are interested in then consider getting some work experience in medicine etc. I know quite a few people who have completed a pharmacy degree only to realise they actually want to do medicine!

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.

25 New Jobs for Kilkenny with TransferMate

In Kilkenny, foreign exchange company TransferMate is seeking to recruit 25 people to its business development and sales staff.

The Irish-owned Company is accepting CVs from today with a view to conducting interviews in the coming weeks.

The company is seeking to hire business development and sales staff to assist clients based in Europe, North America and Australia. The jobs will be based at the company’s 24-hour call centre in Kilkenny.

TransferMate human resources manager Stephen Hickey said the new positions were immediately available, adding that interviews would take place in the coming weeks. He said the company added 15 new jobs in Ireland last year, while also expanding its team in the US, Australia and UK.

Barry Dowling, managing director of TransferMate Global Payments, said companies now have an alternative when it comes to making their foreign currency payments and despite having offices worldwide. “Companies across Ireland and the UK have downsized over the past 3 years and are seeking more cost effective ways of saving money…Instead of incurring approximately 3 per cent margins using the banks Transfermate can make them savings both on the exchange rate and on banking fees along with eliminating administration”.
