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.

I would advise having a degree in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. Professional training in nursing is necessary in order to understand patient care and what standards are required to provide quality care in an acute hospital setting.

One would also have to understand the value of planning, implementing and evaluating work practices in order to get the best out of employees. The person coming into the job would need to be patient, able to negotiate and work under pressure, as well as work on their own initiative.


Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

100 New Jobs with Mobile Tech Company MOVIDIUS

100 new jobs have been announced at mobile technology company MOVIDIUS in Dublin.

The tech firm's announcement follows funding raised by the firm worth more than €37m.

Movidius develops hardware and software for virtual reality headsets, drones, home automation and other technology.

The new jobs will be added in the next year to the existing 70 people working for Movidius in Dublin, and Silicon Valley in the US.

The funding raised by Movidius is one of the largest ever in Ireland for a technology company - and the largest for a fabless semiconductor company in the past two years globally.

Movidius says it will use the financing to further drive software and hardware products for the next wave of emerging applications. The company says its technology will transform how devices and users interact with the world around them through intelligent, vision-based technology.

As part of this new round of investment, David Lam of WestSummit Capital will be joining Movidius' board of directors.

The Taoiseach Enda Kenny said: "Supporting cutting edge Irish companies like Movidius is essential to develop an enterprise focused economy. The impressive $40m investment being announced today will lead to 100 new high quality jobs being created in Ireland and will boost Irish exports in the growing computer vision technology sector."

"I am particularly pleased that this investment has been made under the China Ireland Growth Capital Technology Fund which will enhance the strategic relationship between our two countries."

The Minister for Jobs, Richard Bruton, added: "Today's announcement that Movidius, a ground-breaking company operating at the cutting edge of global technology, is expanding in Ireland and creating 100 extra jobs here is a great example of what Irish companies can achieve."
