Maynooth University has an atmosphere like no other college I have visited. I found everyone to be friendly and I got to know so many people around campus. The majority of my lectures were small in size which allowed me to get to know people across different degree courses as well as in my own class.
During my time studying at Maynooth University I learnt many skills that have influenced my life after college. These skills include time management, communication, team work, research, organisational and presentation skills.
In September 2012 I completed my Leaving Certificate and began studying Marketing. In 2015 I graduated with a BBS Honours Marketing Degree from Maynooth University. At the start of my final year I began applying for graduate jobs. I applied to the Kingspan Group Graduate Programme and the interview process commenced in early 2015. Kingspan is a global leader in high performance insulation, building fabric, and solar integrated building envelopes. In July 2015 I began working for Kingspan Insulation Ireland as a Marketing Assistant.
At Kingspan every day is different. One day you could be drawing up a press release and the next you could be at an exhibition/show. I carry out a variety of tasks but I particularly enjoy the event management aspect of my role. Kingspan Insulation attends several shows a year, which means you have to be very organised. With this job you get to meet a lot of new people which I find really enjoyable.
