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 Richard Storey from McDonald's to give some advice for people considering this job:

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!!

Naturalist?
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Arts: A Wider Choice At UL

Course Details header image

Find out about what it's really like to study Arts at the University of Limerick with our Blog brought to you directly from students of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.  

At the University of Limerick, we deliver an Arts Degree which is flexible and wide-ranging, offering 19 subjects in all. You can study a combination of subjects (as Single Honours or Joint Honours) from across the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences: from familiar arts subjects such as English, French, German, or History, to newer subjects such Drama and Theatre Studies or Linguistics with TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

In the course of your study you will have opportunities - unique to the UL curriculum - to work, to travel, and to study abroad.

You will study Arts at UL because:

  • You want to choose from a wide range of subjects at an institution where you can benefit from real-world work experience and can live and study in another country;
  • You want to engage with fresh ideas;
  • You wish to communicate your own ideas effectively and persuasively;
  • You want to engage critically and analytically with the world around you;
  • You want to develop skills that will enhance your career and, in the broadest sense, your contribution to society.
  • You can choose from a set of fourteen subjects taught at the University of Limerick, to which we have added the possibility of taking one of your subjects - Geography, Mathematics, Philosophy, Drama and Theatre, or Theology and Religious Studies - from our partner institution, Mary Immaculate College.
