Some of the best people I know still aren’t sure what they want to do, my advice would be to give it a go. If you don’t like it you can always try something else. Whatever is in your heart follow it, don’t be something just because someone in your family is. Whether you’re looking to be a leader, a designer or come up with new ideas and a better way of doing things, make sure it’s something that fills you with passion.

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.

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.
