I chose to study Human Resource Management at TU Dublin because it provided students with an opportunity to participate in a work placement programme for one semester. I believe it was crucial for me a student gain some work experience and outline this on my CV. Nowadays, employers look for both: qualifications and work experience.
The placement itself was such a great experience for me as it allowed me to gain a real insight into HR management; this included learning how to apply my knowledge regarding recruitment and selection, performance management, employment law and other specific HR aspects to real life. The placement was everything I could have asked for and more. The lecturers at TU Dublin provide students with great help regarding securing a work placement.
I was able to secure a job straight after finishing college and I believe it was because I had the experience from my work placement.
