If someone was to ask me for advice about applying for this job I would say register on The job is open to anyone to apply and it is a very good working environment. The person applying should be willing to develop him or herself no matter what their age.

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
