Go for it!  But realise that its not going to be easy and things take time and there are LOTS of sacrifices to make. Also make sure you learn from your mistakes - because you will make them. It is really only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

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.

40 New Jobs for Cabra with Valeo Foods

Dublin-based Valeo Foods has completed a €7m upgrade of its Cabra manufacturing facility on the northside of Dublin.

It is the biggest investment in the site since it was established 70 years ago and will see the creation of 40 new jobs, bringing total employment at the facility to 150 people over the next year.

The Cabra facility, which stretches over a 10-acre site, has been in operation in Ireland since 1945. It manufactures canned, culinary and home baking products under the Batchelors, Erin, Odlums and Shamrock brand names.

The latest phase has seen the creation of a new state-of-the-art production line which, among other things, has resulted in the manufacturing, production and packaging of Chef sauces and Fruitfield jam and marmalades returning to Ireland.

Oliver Sutherland, Valeo Foods' chief commercial officer, said the company now has a best-in-class international site meeting the highest global food safety and quality standards. "We look forward to growing our manufacturing output in Ireland and further supporting the local economy and Irish suppliers," he said.
