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

The educational structure in Romania is different to here, so we were studying everything up to University. I then decided to go for a career in management. I made the best choice!

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

Although school subjects don't have a huge relevance in my career I think some of the business oriented subjects (accounts etc...) can be very useful for book keeping and the business management side of things. Fitness is also very important so sports and physical ED would also be useful.

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

I did biology, geography, music and French as my option subjects for the Leaving Cert, but to be honest, none of these really influenced my career path. I didnít do science for my Junior Cert, I wasnít interested in it but by the time I was about 15, I had a huge interest in science and regretted not doing it! I felt like I needed to pick a science subject for my Leaving, just to cover myself because I didnít know what I wanted to do. The only reason I picked biology was because I thought it would be the easiest one to start from scratch in 5th year. I hated it, and it was only after we did the chemistry module in college that I realised that I really liked it and found it much more straightforward than biology. To be honest, I donít think any of my choices in school led to me choosing forestry. I donít think any of the teachers, even the career guidance teacher, had even heard of the degree.
