Don’t give up easily, because there’ll be many obstacles or roadblocks placed in your way. If you enjoy challenges, you’ll enjoy the hotel industry. It is physically and mentally very challenging but also extraordinarily rewarding, a lot more than most other industries, providing you’re willing to stay the course!

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.

75 New Jobs with Law Firm MHC

Top Dublin Law firm Mason Hayes & Curran have announced the creation of 75 new jobs by the end of the year.

MHC currently employs 410 personnel, including 77 partners. Founded in 1968, it hired 64 additional staff last year.

The company said the new roles - which include lawyers and support staff - are being created as a result of the continued strong growth the firm is experiencing across all of its key practice areas.

“We are obviously pleased to be busy and growing. Clients need well-resourced law firms to deliver quality advice and service at the speed that business operates. Our recruitment initiatives are designed to meet, and indeed anticipate, that client need,” said managing partner Declan Black.

“The contribution of the professional services sector in Ireland to employment and growth can sometimes be overlooked. The sector provides a major direct contribution to the economy and is also highly influential in supporting foreign investment by complementing the State’s initiatives and providing a sophisticated level of service to international corporates which is on a par with anything they experience in their home jurisdictions,” he added.
