    I have been working at Fáilte Ireland full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I applied to work for Fáilte Ireland through the Ibec graduate programme. Originally, I was sceptical as this placement was not as well-known as the other placements on the tourism stream. From the very first week I was given my own projects, high levels of responsibility and a lot of experience representing the company abroad. In my first year I was sent to over 10 destinations on sales calls or educational trips. This placement also allowed me to get to know the most senior members of the tourism industry (hotels, venues etc). Fáilte Ireland take their commitment seriously when taking on graduates and I was quickly made feel part of the team!

    Cons

    The salary is low but there are great benefits to make up for it (fully paid work phone, work travel expenses and a subsidised canteen onsite). The company also pays for the postgraduate diploma through DIT.
