For the student looking to work in Ireland, English as a foreign language is an essential skill. It is not necessary that they should have a degree in English, but it would certainly help. In the UK many people that are skilled in English take up employment in an overseas location, but with the current economic situation in Ireland it can be very difficult for those with jobs in Ireland to find work in the UK. Irish people who wish to study and work in Ireland are recommended to apply to one of the hundreds of English-speaking schools in Ireland and work their way up from there. The advantage of working your way up through the school is that once you’re qualified it is relatively easy to get another job in Ireland.
There are several advantages to studying and working in Ireland. The students will get plenty of experience of working as part of a team, with different countries. They will also be working on projects where they will interact with native Irish speakers. The benefit of this is that they can develop new friendships with their Irish co-workers, learn new skills such as communicating in Irish and, of course, improve their English. Many Irish people have the experience of learning English in England and are looking to make the move to Ireland. The problem for them is that they simply do not know the language well enough to be able to meet the required standards for employment. This means that they need to improve their English in order to get a suitable job.
Ireland has a large number of universities offering a wide range of courses and are often recognised throughout the world for their expertise in the English language. They usually offer programmes of between three to five years. Students can look for summer and part-time jobs in Ireland, which will enable them to make an impact in the work force in Ireland. However, they need to be careful about how much time they spend studying in Ireland. Taking on loads of work on short notice can actually harm their chances of getting a decent job in Ireland and is a better option to look for some other work abroad.
