This career involves working with people in a caring capacity. If you have no interest in helping people personally or educationally then this may be the wrong profession for you.

Empathy, patience and respect are important qualities for this job, in addition to be able to relate well to the person you are dealing with. As there is also a large amount of information to be handled in the job, good organisational, IT and time management skills are also quite important.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Brown Thomas 'looking for 150 temporary workers'The Brown Thomas Group is set to create 150 temporary jobs over the
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.
