If it is possible to get some work experience during the summer holidays or weekends, it would be great. Find out if there are any positions (voluntary or otherwise) available in your local IT or University. Get involved in a hobby such as model making, this would be very helpful as it would help with dexterity & impart an understanding of the ways in which different materials interact when assembled together.

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.

Christmas period, it has been announced.

Both full and part-time positions will be available in the company's
well-known designer store on Grafton Street in Dublin, as well as at its
BT2 Store, BT2 Dundrum and BT2 Blanchardstown.

A spokesperson told the Irish Examiner that the positions would cover
the festive period.

"The company is recruiting for several functions including sales and
sales support, beauty consultants, cashiers, gift wrapping and stockroom
personnel," she added.

Application forms will be available from the company's website from
today (September 30th).

Earlier this month, the Irish Times reported that Kildare Village is
creating a mixture of over 100 permanent and temporary positions in the
run-up to the festive season. The opening of four new brands at the
designer outlet store will generate 60 positions, while an additional 45
will be created by existing retailers to meet the Christmas demand.
