This is a perfect job for any student - you get flexible hours and your mind switches from the college problems in the friendly atmosphere. This is an opportunity to meet people from different countries, get an insight into their worlds, about their ways. Your work is always well rewarded and appreciated by the management.

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.
