I would strongly recommend a career in HR specifically in hospitality. It is a flexible career with lots of options and opportunities to travel. A qualification in HRM is a good start and gaining work experience is really important.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Free Maths courses online for Leaving Cert students

Free Maths courses online for Leaving Cert students

Griffith College now offer a new comprehensive online resource for Leaving Certificate mathematics (ordinary level) students.

This resource supplements the successful revision classes delivered by Griffith College in Dublin, Cork and Limerick in April. Over 700 students attended these revision sessions.

The days were split into 90 minute sessions. Each session covered a specific topic in its entirety, including all examination questions on that topic since 2000. The sessions were recorded on video and are now available to all students at www.maths.gcd.ie The site contains a complete set of revision notes, summaries and videos for each question topic on the Leaving Certificate Ordinary Level Mathematics. While the site has only been live for a few days, many students throughout the country have individually spent over 10 hours using and re-using the resource.

In providing the online resource in bite-sized chunks, much like a dictionary, Griffith College hopes it will help students to fill in any particular gap they may have in their understanding, while recognising the extensive knowledge and skills they have already mastered. By providing the resource free, it balances the opportunity for all students, regardless of their financial means.

 




Be Tactful

  

Tact is knowing what to say (or not say) and when to say it (or not say it). Without sacrificing the message or the truth, deliver your message in such a way that it honours the humanity of the other person involved.

            
 

What are your Career Interests? 920

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.
