Teaching as they say is a vocation, it is a job that requires patience and enthusiasm. If you are considering teaching you need to look beyond the holidays and think of the 9-4 Monday to Friday spent dealing with children or teenagers and the challenges which they might pose.

I would advise anyone thinking of teaching as a career to speak with Teachers and learn of their experiences, both positive and negative. I personally would encourage people to consider teaching as it is an extremely rewarding profession in terms of the interaction you get daily with young people and the colleagues you meet in the job.

US-based customer services management firm Convergys has announced an additional 100 new job at its Dublin contact centre in Swords, in North Dublin.

The company delivers customer service and technical support services to BT broadband and telephone customers in the UK. It also has a site at Woodford Business Park, in Santry, also on Dublin's Northside.

Available positions at both Irish sites include technical support roles. These are currently open for application.

Dublin has been a pivotal hub for Convergys for over 15 years’ and the creation of these new jobs "reaffirms our commitment to the Irish market" said Site Director at Convergys Dublin, Stephen Guerin.
