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 Kevin Keary from EU Careers to give some advice for people considering this job:
|Be proactive and look for the areas that interest you whether it’s the Environment or Human Rights and find MEP’s or interest groups that specialise in those interests and take the initiative to send them your CV.
Having a European language would help you considerably in this career. Irish should also not be ruled out as an option as this is considered as a second language.

A barrister represents clients in the courtroom in both civil and criminal cases, and is frequently consulted for expert legal opinion by solicitors on behalf of their clients.
This three-year degree programme equips the student with a comprehensive undergraduate education in law. Modules cover: family; land; employment; commercial; administrative; constitutional criminal; tort; EU; company and partnership amongst others.
