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 Ciaran Walsh from Forestry Careers Ireland to give some advice for people considering this job:
|My currently role is quite different and often reliant on others to complete certain parts of work before I could progress my workload which can be frustrating but once you’re aware of it you can plan accordingly. The outdoors element of the role are quite varied as I could be looking at a greenfield site that is potentially being planted, in a mature forest considering a forest plan, inspecting a felling licence or a claimed site. There is a variety to the role which makes it quite appealing.|

Topics on this course include; personality, childhood, mental processes (such as attention and memory), the brain and its disorders, and how other people influence our behaviour.
From second year you specialise in either Psychology + Technology or Psychology + Practice.
Consider how technology has changed many aspects of life such as the workplace, entertainment, socialising, learning, even how we shop. Sport, health and even learning are made clearer through the application of psychological principles.
New technologies are changing how we communicate and work, text messaging, social networking sites, online chat, etc. How will these change society and how we interact? Everything is made clearer through the application of psychological principles. This degree is a unique opportunity to study how psychology applies to everyday life, especially our use of technology, and how it can create new ways to improve our quality of life.
