What are your Career Interests?
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.

What I like the best about my job is that I do something that I really like. something that I have been always interested in. It's really 'cool' that I constantly learn and develop my skills.
In comparison with the time when I started working in Coillte, I can see a huge change in my confidence, presentation skills, customer care, planning skills, etc. I am also very happy to gain more of practical knowledge which is so necessery in planning and carrying out forest operations.
What I like about my job is diversity. My job it not only about forestry. It's about environmental protection, mapping, IT skills, public relations, marketing, sales, environmental law and regulations, health and safety, recreation, education and much more.
