What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Engineering, Construction Studies, Biology and Maths were probably the main ones that influenced my career path, but I have used some part of every subject I have studied in my job at some point.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Oisín:
Technical Graphics and Construction Studies - they give a basic insight into what you might be dealing with on a day to day basis. A good knowledge of Maths also helps.

Daniel:
Art, Maths and Construction Studies. I enjoyed working with my hands and being creative.

Deirdre Sayers, Primary School Teacher

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I took seven subjects for my Leaving Cert. These were primarily arts subjects with the exception of Biology and Maths.

These subjects were ideal for a B.Ed. Degree course. They would have restricted my entry into the sciences, however. In hindsight I would not have done anything differently for the career path I choose. However, I might have had a wider career path if I had studied a wider base of subjects.
