Anyone considering this job would need to be patient, warm, a good listener and customer focused. However in the long run what you need most of all is common sense.


If you are considering returning to the work force don't sell yourself short. Remember all the life experience you have acquired rearing a family and running a household.


Believe in yourself and go for it!


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.
