Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

Psychology is a very broad area and I would encourage people to reflect on the field that would suit them best. If you study pharmacy, you will graduate as a pharmacist. It is different in psychology. The role of a Clinical Psychologist differs significantly from the role of an Educational Psychologist, a Forensic Psychologist or a Sports Psychologist. A post graduate qualification will be required to practice in any of these fields. Regardless of the area of psychology that interests you, respect for and an interest in people is a key value that is required. Once you have qualifications, networks and professional bodies are a good way to meet prospective employers.

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.

10 new jobs in medical devices sector for south east

10 new jobs in medical devices sector for south east

Q1 Scientific has announced the creation of 10 new jobs for the South East at the launch of its new Irish operation, in the pharmaceutical stability storage business.

Q1 Scientific is based in Waterford and was established to provide a world-class Environmentally Controlled storage facility that services the pharmaceutical, medical device and life sciences industries. It is the first company in Ireland to specialise in the provision of a Stability Storage and Quality Validation service that meets the highest-international standards, as required for such highly-regulated industries.

A key factor in meeting with industry’s strict regulatory requirements for registration of any new drug or medical device is proof that the product will retain its stability under specific environmental conditions. This is also essential in determining the shelf-life of any product and an integral aspect of the product development process.

“Our purpose-built facility in Waterford offers clients from across the life sciences sector with state-of-the-art stability storage that far exceeds the strict international registration standards demanded by the production of pharmaceutical and medical devices,” said Q1 Scientific CEO Louise Grubb “We greatly look forward to growing the business over the coming years and becoming a world-leader in global stability storage solutions,” Grubb added.
