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 Colin Butterly from Construction Industry Federation to give some advice for people considering this job:
|For anyone who even vaguely considers a trade or a management job they shouldn’t hesitate to pursue it as it can surprise you how capable you can become despite any reservations you may have.
It could even introduce you to different roles in the industry that you hadn’t realised were available to you or felt where out of your reach.

Economics must be combined with one other TSM subject. An honours degree is awarded in both subjects.
In the first two years, teaching emphasises the understanding of the basic principles of economics and the acquisition of the quantitative and analytical skills necessary for more in-depth study.
The student will also receive instruction on how the modern economy works both from an Irish and a global perspective. Project work is a very important component of almost all modules within the final year.
If you are interested in current economic affairs or in understanding how public policies could lower unemployment or assist the developing world, then you will find studying economics both stimulating and rewarding.
