Make sure you have a suitable outgoing personality, in that you are happy to be always in communication with people be it by phone, letter, email and site meetings.

As I stated before if you can win people over, they will often do work for you because they want to help you rather than because they have to. I think it is vital to have a level head (to be cool and collected) We can often be faced with challenges or hurdles which may at the outset seem unachieveable. However, if you stand back and break it down anything can be done.

Realist?
Realist 
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

The upgrading and conservation of existing buildings is an area of opportunity with the availability of grants and government support for the upgrading of buildings. Statistics show that in 2000 the Repair Maintenance and Improvement of Buildings accounted for €2 billion including approximately €1 billion spent on residential repair and improvement. There will be a growing need to maintain these buildings and our graduates will be well placed to service those needs.
