Well in school you should try do a practical subject and get used to working with your hands. Physics is another subject that would be of benefit. It would help in the theory exams that you complete after each of the off the job training modules.

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.

200 Jobs on the Way for Cork with Kings Laundry

Linen and laundry company Kings Laundry is to create 200 new jobs over the next two years as part of a €12m investment in a new facility in Little Island, Cork.

40 jobs will come on stream initially with recruitment to begin in early 2016. The company say they expect this to grow to up to 200 over the following two years.

Kings Laundry, which supplies linen and laundry services to the hospitality sector, has begun construction at a new purpose built, state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot facility, which is set to open in May 2016.

An Irish-owned and run company, Kings Laundry already employees 310 people in its facility in Tallaght, Dublin.

The construction of the new facility at the 3.5-acre site at Little Island involves an investment of €12 million. When it opens, King's Laundry say it will be the most modern and environmentally-friendly laundry facility in Europe.

Alan Murphy, sales director at Kings Laundry said: "We're delighted to be expanding our business with the construction of our new facility in Cork. The primary purpose of the new operation is to ensure we continue to offer an unbeatable service to our customers in the Munster region. We already have an extensive client base in Cork and the surrounding counties and we are looking to grow this even further.

"We are also delighted to be announcing that we will be recruiting for 40 new positions in Cork. Recruitment will begin early next year,"¯ he added.
