The job that I do is highly specialised and the skills that I am required to have to do my job can only be acquired in our restaurant. However, by taking a job in McDonald's you are opening a career path to use those skills anywhere - the skills you acquire are very transferable. It doesn’t matter where you start, the opportunities are there.

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Seamus Callanan Bank of Ireland & Tipperary Hurler

Hi my name is Seamus Callanan and I studied Business Studies Marketing & Management in LIT. This course equipped me with all the tools needed to pursue my current post with Bank of Ireland. Both the theory and course work prepared me very well for the challenges of the industry.

The learning environment in LIT was very supportive, practical and gave me opportunity to work as both an individual and as part of a team. I found the lecturers and staff very friendly and supportive, and always trying their best in helping me to achieve my full potential.

In addition to my 3rd level education I was given the opportunity to play Fitzgibbon Cup hurling which I found very beneficial as I got to play with a lot of high profile players and work under some of the best management teams in the sport.

For me, it started in LIT
