Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Catherine Day from EU Careers to give some advice for people considering this job:

I would advise them to give it a go - it doesn’t mean you have to work there long term. You must know how to speak a language other than your mother tongue reasonably well, as a good proficiency is essential. It’s also important to know and understand the cultural diversity that makes up the European Union.

Our internships are a great chance to come for a short period to determine where your interests lie and taste the experiences. Starting out your career path with the EU gives you a really good foundation of insider knowledge of how the EU works and is so useful professionally, even if you don’t plan on working there forever.

It is also important for young Irish people to consider moving to countries that are not English speaking and working for the EU would be very useful to your long term career.

Creative
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

EY Summer Internship Programme 2017 CLOSED

**Closed**

Applications for our Summer Internship in Advisory are still open!

Our Summer Internship Programme isn’t so much an internship. It is 12 weeks to become an integral part of a team in EY. You’ll receive world-class, hands-on training that has real-world application. You’ll stretch yourself and we’ll challenge you. After a comprehensive induction you will join the business and begin doing the same work as any other employee in EY. You’ll work as part of a team, meet with clients and make a real contribution to EY projects. We trust the students who join EY for the summer to make a real impact and we encourage you to do so.

Every week you’ll receive specific training in a different business area to ensure that by the end of the summer, you will have a wealth of new skills.

In addition to your new skills and experience, our internship is also fully-paid. You will work for EY as if you were a full-time employee therefore we believe you should be compensated as such.

The programme is open to students from all disciplines in their penultimate year. We want business students, scientists, engineers, students from the arts & humanities, law students. We want people from all backgrounds. This helps us to build a more complete and diverse workplace, which contributes to our objective of building a better working world.
