A day for a Process Engineer at Intel can range from spending all day in what we call our 'bunny suits' or space suits as most people would recognise them as or a day of juggling meetings with working on long term projects that have a quality improvement for your product or have a cost saving for the factory. The key thing is to be adaptable, be organised and be able to communicate your plans clearly and concisely. You will be your own boss in many instances as an engineer and it is up to you to get the job done and do it well, while at the same time meeting goals and challenges that are set for the factory.

The great thing about a process engineer at Intel is that much or your work can be done remotely, which means you don't have to sit at your desk all day allowing you to get in to the machines and get stuck in. One should also be aware that you will be continuously learning in this sort of environment. Because our technology is so up to date we are always making changes to make this possible. Our products will range from mobile phone chips to top of the range computer chips so we need to be able to make changes to meet the demands of what the market is looking for.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

At a Glance... header image

A Reflexologist uses precise pressure techniques to the feet to treat specific points which correspond to all organs and systems of the body, towards healing physical complaints and aiding general wellbeing.


The Work header image

Reflexology is based on the belief that points in the feet and hands are joined to all the major organs and parts of the body by 'energy pathways'.

A reflexologist works with clients to treat a variety of conditions, including stress, sleep disorders, sports injuries and chronic back pain.

Work would involve:

  • Explaining the treatment to the client
  • Taking a medical history which covers issues such as health, diet and lifestyle
  • Examining the client’s feet and hands for possible ‘blockages’ and problem areas
  • Applying pressure with the thumb and fingers to the client’s feet and hands
  • Keeping treatment records
  • Referring clients to their GP, if necessary.

Practitioners may focus just on reflexology, or combine this with other complementary therapies, such as massage therapy.

 


Personal Qualitiesheader image

People in this job role need to have good communication and listening skills. You would also need to have good co-ordination and be able to work accurately with your hands.
