I think a career in tax is very rewarding and is an enjoyable career. There are a varied number of jobs which are available to someone with a tax qualification, including private practice, industry, Revenue, lecturing etc. The role of a tax adviser in practice or indeed within Revenue is, in my experience, extremely varied and challenging.

I would advise college students who are considering a career in tax to look into placements offered by their colleges / summer internships. I know from my time spent in private practice that a great number of the bigger accountancy / tax practice offer such positions to college students. This is a great way for such students to get a feel for what a career in tax entails and will help them in making a decision as to whether or not tax is something that they would enjoy.

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.

150 new jobs with IT security company Citrix

IT security company Citrix is creating 150 new jobs in Dublin. The jobs will be at the company's existing offices in East Point Business Park.

Job roles will be in the areas of inside sales and technical support. The East Point Business Park is to be upgraded and expanded by 26,000 sq ft to accommodate 400 employees.

Citrix has been in Ireland since 1999. The expansion results from a decision to centralise its inside sales in Dublin. The company is also increasing its focus on customer services and moving its services to the cloud.

Citrix is seeking a mixture of graduates, experienced technical support engineers and sales staff. As part of the expansion, the company is also establishing a sales academy in Dublin to develop junior sales talent.

The announcement is welcomed by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O'Connor and IDA Ireland Chief Executive Martin Shanahan.
