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.

Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

This course combines Irish Studies with Literature and Music. It provides an integrated interdisciplinary programme of learning for students with a particular interest in modern and contemporary Irish culture.

The literature strand of the program explores Ireland's most accomplished writers in Irish and in English from the nineteenth century to the present, with Irish language material being presented in translation. The music strand provides a historical and theoretical approach to Irish music (and dance) practice during the same period, spanning traditional and popular games.
