Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work.  They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.

Education is very important.  It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.

The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

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.

Jobs in Demand

The Labour Market is constantly changing, with certain career sectors growing and others declining according to local and global change.

Currently, companies in Ireland are having difficulty in recruiting people with particular skills and experience, and labour market predictions indicate that some of these areas will continue to be a concern for employers over the next few years.

The Expert Group on Future Skills Needs (EGFSN) publish a list anually, of what occupations and roles are experiencing skills shortages, and make recommendations for colleges and educators to alter their programmes to facilitate the ongoing changes.

This is good news for people looking for employment or a career change - it means that they can upskill or retrain themselves to be qualified for the jobs in demand, with a better than average chance of finding employment in their chosen area.

  Hint: McDonald's

I was looking for a part time job whilst studying and a friend suggested that I apply to McDonald's. I applied, had an interview  and was contacted a day later to say I was successful.

To become a Manager, I had to reach a certain grade & pass particular training courses to be considered.
