In this episode, I chat with Mickey Quigg who currently works in New York for NY GAA as Development Officer. Mickey was previously a student of the University of Ulster and was also Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs & Vice President of Campaigns and Communications at Ulster University Students Union.
We chat about his time at the University of Ulster and the roles which he has been involved in, as well as the skills which he developed and feels, have been important. Mickey talks about his current role as a development officer at New York GAA and what it’s been like working in the United States.
We discuss important skills which students need to develop and refine and the importance of communication skills in the workplace. Mickey share’s his top 3 tips for Students graduating in 2018 and how these can help land a job or opportunity after University.
Finally, we chat about LinkedIn and how useful Mickey has found it for building his own career profile online and professional network and why he feels Students should be embracing the power of Linkedin.
