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

For my Leaving Certificate I chose Biology as my Science subject. This along with Home Economics allowed me to get a place on a Nurse training programme.

Elaine Steiro, Franchisee

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

I took Art, Spanish, Business Studies & Home Economics.

I would say that they really didn't influence my career path, however, I did learn from my extra curricular activities that I liked working in groups and I could see how hard work paid off and was very fulfilling.

I would say that I would have liked more guidance and should have asked for more direction from people who could have pointed out my strengths to me earlier...
