My advice would be it is definitely a job where if you work hard and maintain your ambition you can have a satisfying career.

I think the biggest misconception is that McDonald's is only a job and stop gap to something else.

You will need patience, drive and commitment and be able to adapt to change. The skills you will learn with this job will be lifelong skills.

So you want to be an Electrical Engineer?

Without electrical engineers, much of the electrical equipment consumers rely on daily just wouldn’t function, or even exist.

Electrical engineers' speciality is designing, testing, maintaining and improving electrical equipment, such as motors, power generators, and lighting and wiring systems, and to carry out these responsibilites well electrical engineers must exercise solid skills in communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and attention to detail.

Engineering companies and businesses in the manufacturing and research industries will likely employ most electrical engineers, who typically work in office environments. On occasion, however, they may have to conduct site visits to inspect and correct problems.

Careers in electrical engineering generally require a minimum of a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, and electrical engineers may even need to be licensed to work.

In Ireland, an electrical engineer can expect to earn an annual salary of €27,667-€71,845, according to PayScale.com.
