My advice to someone considering a job in a financial institution would be to do some research. There are many areas to choose from in Bank of Ireland, from branch banking to marketing, and there are many starting points to build a lifelong career in a rewarding and challenging environment.

I would recommend that someone should work hard for their Leaving Cert to attain good results. The most important thing about working in a bank is to have good customer service skills, from here everything else will fall in to place.

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.
