IT Administration (Mayo Campus) - Sheila Kelleghan

Sheila Kelleghan - IT Administration graduate (GMIT Mayo Campus)

I finally made the decision to join GMIT Mayo in January 2013.

I was a mother of three small children and the recession had a negative impact on our family, and it was by far the best decision I could have ever made for my family.

On presentation day I was met by lecturer Mark Frain who explained everything to me about the course. It was a fantastic course and it has set me up 100% for working in the IT industry.

After completing the course I worked for nine months as an IT support engineer for Cloudstrong. I then moved on from Cloudstrong and now I work as a major incident manager for HP/DXC and I absolutely love my job.

Going back to education in GMIT was by far the best decision I have ever made, I feel I am now financially and professionally stable for the future.
