Ejiro O'Hare Stratton, Clinical Nurse Manager 2

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

Economics, English, Maths, History, Biology, Art, BK, were the subjects I took. Biology stood to me for nursing but Economics and History also proved useful when I did my course in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations.

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

Subject choice really does matter. I took Applied Maths, Physics and Chemistry for the Leaving Cert and having not studied Biology I found that hard in first year in college.

Natasha Ibanez , Mechanical Engineer

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

We had no Physics, Chemistry and other technical subjects in the school I attended, which would have been useful for my career development.  I did however have the opportunitiy to study Honours Maths in preparation for my current career.

In hindsight I would have looked for the opportunitiy to at least study Applied Maths, which would have made it easier to go through first year in college.

I am delighted I went to UCD, where it was possible to do one common year before choosing the Engineering discipline.
