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.

We asked Kieran Magee from Teagasc to give some advice for people considering this job:

Someone who wants to be where I am today shall need bucket loads of ambition and not be afraid of hard work.  They will need to not be afraid of starting at the very bottom of that big high ladder but at the same time have the eagerness and determination to get to the top of that ladder because the opportunities are there.

Education is very important.  It may only seem like a silly piece of paper but it's that Cert, Diploma or Degree that gets you that job and not the man/woman beside you.

The one thing that is vital in not alone this job, but any job, and alot of people don't seem to have it, is common sense. It's something so simple but really important. if you have no cop-on then nobody wants to know you.

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.

Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland said, “The decision by Indeed to locate its EMEA headquarters in Dublin is great news for Ireland and it adds significantly to our reputation as a hub for new businesses. Attracting high-growth companies to invest in Ireland has been a specific target of IDA Ireland since January 2010. Since then there has been a very strong flow of this type of business coming to Ireland, with 35 investments won in the last two years. On behalf of IDA Ireland I wish Indeed every success with this operation and offer the full support of IDA as the company grows its base in Ireland.”
