Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

PR Executive Graduate Testimonial

Ciana Moulton PR Executive for Cleverbug "I believe that the MSc in Event Management gave me the opportunity to gain vast experience in the events sector.

It taught me skills in areas such as corporate communications, Digital-Media, and SEO, which allowed me to grow my career beyond just events and apply them in a business setting. During my MSc year, I interned with Cultural Events Company Happenings which I think was a crucial element of my success in the program.

I joined CleverBug as a member of the Events team, was then promoted to Events team lead and eventually Head of PR, In this role I oversee all PR and Event activities. Event Management will teach a person how to handle high-pressure situations, and you'll meet people from all different walks of life.

I firmly believe I would not have the success I do today if I had not made the crazy decision to walk away from my comfortable job in Microsoft Ireland and return to education....it gave me the skills and work ethic that are required to succeed. Looking back now, I wouldn't swap that experience for the world. As it has formed the foundations on which I have built my career. A Masters opens doors that you never imagined existed."
