Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out there.

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Up to 100 Jobs for Cork with eSentire

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD today announced that eSentire Inc., a leader in continuous advanced threat protection cybersecurity solutions and managed security services plans to create close to 100 jobs over the next five years in a European HQ and Security Operations Centre in Cork.
