Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobs 


Monday, January 17, 2011 




Intel upgrade to create 850 construction jobsAbout 850 construction jobs are to be created as Intel expands its Leixlip technology campus, the company has announced.

The technology giant, which posted record revenues last year, is investing $500 million (€376.9 million) in the construction project as it expects continuing worldwide demand for its products and services in 2011.

A further 200 high end employment positions will be created at the Leixlip campus once the construction work has been completed.

Commenting on the news, IDA Ireland chief executive officer Barry O'Leary welcomed the move and said it is a "significant strategic investment for Ireland".

"Given that the initial impact over the next two years will result in over 1,000 jobs between construction, contract and full time employment it is immensely positive news," he added.

Mr O'Leary also noted that high end manufacturing is key for Ireland's economic growth.

Last week, the IDA said it was supporting French financial software systems developer Murex as it expands its operations in Dublin.
