  James Sheridan

The best thing about this industry is you can get a job in the local hotel or restaurant, part time, and see if you like it.

Sit down with the manager and have a list of questions prepared. Don't make too many plans, just go with the flow, be nice/positive to everybody and things will go alright


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.
