If you always want to know how things work and are fascinated by structures like grandstands or bridges then a career in civil and structural engineering may suit you. If in school you enjoy subjects like maths and physics, and since these would be the foundations to the engineering college course, you will probably enjoy the course. If you like the idea of working for a company where you could get to travel, then international companies such as ESB International would suit you well. Engineering is a good and challenging career so you have to want to be challenged in your work, to solve problems and to come up with ways to improve designs.

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

22 New Jobs with Software Company Arconics

Irish software company Arconics has announced that 22 jobs are to be created following the signing of a 10-year deal with Qatar Airways to provide its document management system to the major airline.

The Arconics document management system (DMS) in question, AeroDocs, will now be used by Qatar Airways to allow them to manage their aircraft manuals and operational documentation on board the aircraft using an iPad. The deal is believed to be worth in the region of US$6.7m to Arconics.

The 22 jobs to be created to be highly-skilled roles in:

  • Software development
  • Marketing
  • Operations management

Arconics will provide the AeroDocs software to all group companies including Qatar Airways, Qatar Cargo, Qatar Executive, and Qatar Amiri Flight. The AeroDocs software is compatible with both Airbus and Boeing aircraft models, two of the dominant aircraft manufacturers providing aircraft to the world’s airlines.

The addition of XML functionality, Arconics says, ensures that pilots get to use powerful features including advanced search and storage of annotations and highlights. “We have been very lucky finding top talent, as we use cutting edge mobile and satellite technology and face the complex challenges that attract top engineers,” said Arconics’ CEO, Niall O’Sullivan.

“Arconics is a good example of an Irish company that’s a world leader in a highly competitive global software market, generating jobs and adding substantial export sales to Ireland’s balance of payments.”
