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.

  Hint: Bank of Ireland

I returned from a year traveling around Australia and as I had previously worked in BOI part-time throughout college it was an obvious decision to apply to the Bank again.

 

I didn't have a clue what I wanted to do, or what area I wanted to work in, so when I got a call for an interview in the Recruitment Unit I didn’t see any reason why I shouldn't go for it.

 

Nearly five years later I am glad I made this decision as I think it was the right one for me.
