What are your Career Interests?
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.
Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

I think the range of my work is quite cool. I love the fact that I can immerse myself in different jobs and learn all about them and then move onto another project. It is very cool to work with people who are passionate about their jobs, extremely professional, brilliant at what they do and dedicated to the Public Service.
