3 main things:

1. Be organised.

2. Try to keep a positive attitude.

3. Persevere. Working in a Design Evaluation role or indeed any electronic engineering role, requires problem-solving skills and half the battle with this is having a positive attitude. If you have a negative/pessimistic attitude, the battle to find a solution is lost before you even start. In debugging an issue, start with the basics and work from there. Like peeling an onion, gradually peel off the outter layers to reveal the inner core of the you work, you get more clues and develop a better understanding of the product/issue you are working on.


Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

60 New Data Protection Jobs for Galway with IDT911

Data protection services company IDT911 is to create 60 jobs with the opening of its European headquarters in Galway at the Galway Technology Centre in the Mervue area of the city. The new positions will be filled over the next five years.

The company provides identity management, fraud monitoring and cyber security services to 17.5 million private customers in the US and Canada as well as to more than 750,000 businesses.

IDT911 was established in 2003 and hopes to generate business in what it says is an emerging market for identity management and data support programmes in Ireland. A recent study by the Irish Computer Society found more than half of Irish companies suffered a data breach in 2014. An EU sponsored study in February found 13% of Irish internet users had fallen victim to online fraud.

IDT911 says it offers protection from emerging cyber threats and resolutions for businesses that have been impacted by fraud.

The company's Chief Operating Officer, Sean Daly, said Ireland and Galway had been chosen as the base for the European operation because of the pool of available graduates with relevant qualifications and the support provided by State agencies.

The announcement has been welcomed by Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton who is in Galway today for one of the Government's Regional Jobs Forums.

Details of career opportunities with IDT911 are available here. Open positions for the Galway operation have not yet been added.
