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

I chose to study all three science subjects in school. Like every student I guess, I was unsure whether this was a good decision or not but felt it better to study what I enjoyed.

I wanted to study science in college but was unsure of where I wanted to end up working within the field of science. This was an important choice for my career as a broad knowledge of science is hugely beneficial when dealing with day-to-day issues in a pharmaceutical company.

My choice to study microbiology also gave me a broad scientific background which also helps in my current job. I believe these were good choices in hindsight. I'm not sure I would have done anything differently as the three sciences were an important basis for my college education, my FAS training and ultimately my current studies in Trinity College.

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

I left school early so my school subjects had little influence on my current job.

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

I chose business studies and accountancy while at school and immediately after school I did an accountants technicians course.  Accountancy was a good choice for me and added to the experience I gained while working for Citibank,  I am comfortable completing my companies P&L's, managing my cash flows and planning financials for the future.  Did I choose well as a student? Luckily yes.
