Cannot get work experience

Sunday, December 23, 2018
Q: I went back to college as a mature student and received my Level 7 BEng. last year. I cannot get any work or experience and my degree is now slipping away from me. I am back working in my old career as a chef now which I did not want to do anymore.

I am married with 4 kids so I can't afford to go back to college to do any more study. What can I do?

A: You should make contact with Engineers Ireland for some advice. Construction and capital infrastructure projects are likely to be slow in Irelanso you might want to consider looking in different areas.

Consider the medical device industry. It is primarily located in Galway and Dublin but there are opportunities in other locations as well.
