I thought the job would solely be to compute an individualís / companyís tax liability but it extends to so much more beyond that. You are not just solely a person or organisationís tax advisor; you are a general business adviser helping them to make key business/commercial decisions.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

New Yahoo offices have capacity for 130 additional staff

Internet giant Yahoo has invested $12m (€10.9) in a new EMEA headquarters in Dublin. The 78,000sq ft office space at Point Village were formally opened yesterday by Taoiseach Enda Kenny. This new premises provides capacity to increase the company's Irish workforce from 320 to 450, providing for 130 additional staff.

Yahoo first came to Ireland in 2003. The Dublin team provides Customer Care, Technical and Operational Support, and Finance-related services for the Europe, the Middle East and Africa region, as well as to some Yahoo customers in the US and other regions.

Commenting on the Irish operation Yahoo chief financial officer Ken Goldman said: "We are fundamentally here because of the talent pool, the stability of the country, the fact that it is part of the EU, and the overall sense of excitement and optimism that exists in the country."

He added that the company hoped to continue expanding in Ireland. Pat Scully, Yahoo Managing Director for Europe Middle East and Africa,  said: “We first looked at this building in 2013 when we announced 200 jobs. We knew we were growing fast, and many of those jobs were filled in 90 days.”
