I would advise any college student considering a career in tax to undertake a summer internship or placement in a firm offering tax services. I found this an excellent way to understand what a job in tax would actually involve. Researching careers in tax online also shows the endless and exciting opportunities that a tax qualification can offer. I have found the more I have learned about tax, the more I understand how varied roles in tax can be.

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.

Lidl to create 100 new jobs in Newbridge

Lidl is to create 100 jobs in Co Kildare after planning permission was recently granted to build a new distribution centre in Newbridge.

The new 54,000sqm regional distribution centre will be situated on the Naas Road and will employ 350 staff, an increase of 100 on the 250 who are employed at Lidl's current distribution centre in the town.

The development includes the construction of a significant stretch of new public road, which will form the first part of the Newbridge bypass. The company is in the process of tendering both the road infrastructure work and the distribution facility and plans to begin construction in April of this year.

It was in 2000 when Lidl burst onto the Irish grocery market and changed the face of shopping in Ireland.Since then,they have opened more 190 stores across the island of Ireland.
