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.

The initial couple of days can be tough as you are in training and it can make people rethink about working here, but I would have to say persevere, as there are rewards at the end of the tunnel.

McDonald's put their people first and never leave them doing the same job all the time. To work in McDonald's you requires patience, a good personality with a willingness to learn something new everyday.

Showing an interest in other peoples interests would help as you have to work as a team so interpersonal skills are ESSENTIAL!!

Transition Year Open Day

Transition year, it’s a chance to find out what interests you, what excites you and what inspires you. Above all, it’s a chance to explore. Our TY Open Day will give you a brief introduction to the courses offered in DCU presented by DCU students. Some of the topics that will be covered include:

• What’s it really like being a student in DCU

• Where will this course take me

• How many hours are spent in lectures and tutorials

• What’s an assignment

• How will I manage study and have a good time

• Aiming high and what to do to get there

There will also be representatives from HEAR, DARE, Academic and Sport Scholarships giving you the chance to find out alternative admission routes to DCU. We will let you know about the benefits of getting involved in Club and Society life – the heart and soul of DCU!

You can take a campus tour to visit some of the places you might be in a couple of years and throughout the day you can chat to DCU students and staff – they would love to answer any question you may have.

If you need more information, email: colette.obeirne@dcu.ie

This is a DCU Glasnevin Campus event only and there will be presentations and information available on the DCU Institute of Education courses.
