Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

My advice would be it is definitely a job where if you work hard and maintain your ambition you can have a satisfying career.

I think the biggest misconception is that McDonald's is only a job and stop gap to something else.

You will need patience, drive and commitment and be able to adapt to change. The skills you will learn with this job will be lifelong skills.

Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Affidea to create 100 New Jobs

Diagnostic healthcare provider Affidea, which was previously known as Euromedic, is to create 100 jobs over the next 18 months as part of a new €15 million investment.

The company, which currently employs over 135 full-time staff, said the new positions will be a mix of clinical and administrative roles.

Details of career opportunities with Affidea are available here.

Affidea, which announced its rebrand on Thursday, entered the Irish market in March 2007 with the acquisition of MRI Ireland. It has diagnostic centres in Dublin, Cork, Naas and Kilkenny. The company also provides MRI services in Sligo General Hospital and the Ulster Independent Clinic in Belfast.

The company acquired Vista Medical Imaging in Naas, Co Kildare for an undisclosed sum in May bringing its total investment in Ireland to date to €55 million.

“The creation of over 100 new jobs means that our current and new clinics will be able to serve a greater number of patients, quickly, professionally and to the highest of standards,” said chief executive Tom Finn. Affidea Ireland also said on Thursday it intends to provide gamma knife treatment to patients on the island of Ireland.
