Monaghan Institute Advanced QQI Level 6 Business students Shane Askin (Tyholland, Monaghan) and Matthew Campbell (Contribret, Monaghan) have successfully secured an exciting one-year internship to Pittsburgh in the United States. This incredible opportunity, in conjunction with CMETB, SOLAS and Ireland’s Institute of Pittsburgh, was made available to all QQI L6 Business & Digital Media students in Monaghan Institute.

Following a screening process and job interviews with companies in Pittsburgh, both Shane and Matthew were successful in securing administrative positions for one year. Shane will work with Morgan McGinley, an award-winning beer wholesale distribution operation and Matthew with the Pittsburghs Controllers Office, which is the fiscal watchdog for the people of the City of Pittsburgh. The lads headed off to Pittburgh on Thursday 15th August and are currently settling into life stateside.  We wish them both every success in America this year and have no doubt that they will do us proud.

We are delighted that this internship opportunity has been made available to Monaghan Institute Business and Multimedia students and look forward to embarking in similar programmes in the future. Next year, this could be you!
