Conor studied BA in Culinary Arts (Hons) because he was interested in the course and it was only an hour from home. He left the college feeling ready for work
What have you been doing since you finished college?
I have been working in Step House hotel in Borris as a chef, but I’m going to Canada soon.
Do you feel like work placement helped you within your course?
I did work placement up in Loch Eireann in Northern Ireland and I also did international study in Miami. I think it helped me a lot and prepared me for working in the Industry.
Why did you decide to study in WIT?
I chose WIT because it had the course that I liked and it was only an hours drive from home. And I could live there but I was still close enough to travel.
Have you advice for someone considering your course?
Just be committed, give it your all, the more you put in the more you get back out of it.
What stands out about your experience in WIT?
Just overall it gives you a better understanding of how to do even basic things like present yourself in a proper manner. It also gives you life long lessons, and you meet friends
How do you feel about graduating?
Very good, feels like a long time coming but I’m very accomplished with myself.
What do you plan on doing?
I plan on traveling and maybe doing a couple of graduate programs
