Firstly it is very important that you get a third level education as this is a requirement in most hotels for a job in sales. This is the most important step in working in hotel sales. You should gain as much experience within the industry which I found very beneficial.

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.

60 New Jobs with Horizon Pharma

Biopharmaceutical company Horizon Pharma has today announced 60 new jobs as it officially opened its new global corporate headquarters in Dublin.

The jobs will be rolled out at the offices in Connaught House, in Dublin's Burlington Road over the next three years.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny and IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan attended the opening  in Dublin  this afternoon.

An Taoiseach said that the country's reputation as a location for business and investment in the life sciences has been boosted by the announcement:

''Attracting companies like Horizon Pharma to establish and create jobs in Ireland is one of the Government's key missions as we work to secure the recovery and ensure that more people begin to feel the benefits in their daily lives,''.

Horizon Pharma is a speciality biopharmaceutical company focused on identifying, developing, acquiring and commercialising products. The company markets a portfolio of products in arthritis, inflammation and orphan diseases. Mr Shanahan said Ireland has built up a cluster of bio pharma companies.

''This cluster has been further strengthened by Horizon Pharma's decision to locate its new HQ in Dublin and create sustainable employment across a number of business functions.''

Timothy P Walbert, Horizon chief executive, said the opening was a significant milestone in the company's development. ''We are very impressed with the economic progress Ireland has made in recent years and we believe the outlook for the economy is very positive.''

Details of Career Opportunities with Horizon Pharma are made available here. There are currently no vacancies advertised for Dublin. Information will be added as it becomes available.
