  Paulina Pawlukojc

To work as a forester in Coillte you need to complete a degree/diploma in forestry. A keen interest in forestry and forest related businesses is essential. Strong business and IT skills are also important. This job is for someone who is an outdoor person, who loves nature, enjoys walking and doesn’t mind the weather. A driving licence is very helpful as you travel a lot.

You shouldn’t be afraid of a change as being a forester is a continuous learning process. This job is not about quick rewards. The life span of the forest is at least 40 years and your knowledge, confidence and work experience comes with years. And although it sounds very challenging, this job offers very good career opportunities, possibility of further education, great working conditions and financial stability.

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.
