Being an Engineer is a great career choice. It offers so many opportunities both in Ireland and world-wide. Most positions will have terrific travel opportunities after a few years experience under your belt, and if you choose you course carefully your qualification will be recognised by employers all over the globe. Also an engineering qualification will open doors into management roles if that is your preferred career choice, but the reverse is not the case (if you do a course outside of engineering, you will probably not be able to branch off into engineering a few years after graduating).

The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.

20 New Jobs with Cork Fertility Clinic

20 new jobs are to be created with the opening of a new fertility clinic in Cork.

The SIMS IVF clinic at Citygate, Mahon brought eight new jobs with its opening says it will see further recruitment in the coming months. 

The company which started 1997 has invested €3 million in the expansion and is now Ireland’s largest private fertility treatment unit with headquarters at Clonskeagh, Dublin.

Co-founder and CEO, Doctor David Walsh said, “World Health Organisation statistics for Ireland show that one in five people here have fertility issues. In fact, we have the highest infertility rate in Europe, largely due to pregnancy being delayed until relatively late in life. Treatments include IVF, sperm donation, donor egg treatment, reproductive immunology, and EEVA, the Early Embryo Viability Assessment test. The Lord Mayor of Cork Councillor Mary Shields said, “Reproductive technology is an exciting field of medicine focused on new life. “I welcome the fact that this new SIMS IVF Clinic in Cork now offers more choice, access and information for people in the Munster region with fertility issues.”
