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!!

Creative?
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.

This course is designed to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of English and History.

This is not a CAO entry course - course fees required - apply directly to the college.

Course Details header image

The BA (Hons) in English and History is a new Level 8 honours degree programme on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).

It is therefore suitable for anyone who wishes to focus specifically on these subjects in their studies, whether for personal or professional reasons. This programme offers students an attractive opportunity to obtain a DCU degree through distance education, which is much more open and flexible than registering for a full-time or part-time, campus-based programme.
