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 Anna Holohan from Irish Tax Institute to give some advice for people considering this job:
|I would advise any college student considering a career in tax to undertake a summer internship or placement in a firm offering tax services. I found this an excellent way to understand what a job in tax would actually involve. Researching careers in tax online also shows the endless and exciting opportunities that a tax qualification can offer. I have found the more I have learned about tax, the more I understand how varied roles in tax can be.|

In studying English you will be encouraged to engage in critical debate about the meaning and value of particular texts. This will help to foster intellectual flexibility: an awareness of the multi-dimensional nature of situations and the ability to approach problems with an open mind. As a result, you will gain analytical skills and develop critical thinking - skills which appeal greatly to future employers.
