Social?
Social 
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 One year Engineering course at DIT

New One year Engineering course at DIT

Many students know that engineering is the career they want to pursue, but until they get to college they’re not too sure which area of the profession would excite them the most.

Responding to that feedback from second-level students and first year college students, DIT has launched an exciting new one-year engineering programme. Simply called Engineering (General Entry) DT097, the programme offers a comprehensive introduction to engineering maths and science, and includes modules that focus on real engineering design problems.

According to Eddie Conlon, Programme Chair and lecturer, Engineering (General Entry) DT097 is an ideal option for someone who wants to be an engineer but needs to find out more about what is involved. “This new one-year programme gives students a wide-ranging introduction to the engineering profession. There is a unique focus on group projects and students will have opportunities to explore aspects of the different engineering disciplines. Our aim is to give our students a sound basis on which they can base their decision to choose the right degree programme for them.”

Eddie Conlon can be contacted at 4024059 or edward.conlon@dit.ie   (DT097 replaces Preliminary Engineering (DT020), and qualifies for the free fees initiative)

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.
