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.

Megan Byrne - Student

At this point in my time spent in college I have learnt things I didn’t think possible, discovered things about myself that I didn’t know existed and most importantly I have made friends who I know will stay with me long after I leave college. I walk into college every day smiling because I know I’m going to attend a lecture where I’m acknowledged, the lecturers know you as a person; not just a number.

When people ask me what is it about theology that I like so much I just end up smiling and saying “everything”, from the vast curriculum to the on-campus experience, There isn’t one thing about studying Theology in St Patrick’s that I dislike. So yes to sound clichéd, coming to St Patrick’s College Maynooth was the best decision I have ever made.
