Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

  Hint: CRH plc

During my final year in NUI, Galway I was emailed a Careers Newsletter every month.

I saw in it the position of Graduate Mechanical Engineer in Irish Cement and applied for it by sending in my CV to the Irish Cement Head Office.

I attended a first round interview in Dublin held by 2 interviewers, a HR specialist and a Works Engineer. This interview consisted of questions about my CV and projects which I had completed.

Approximately 1 month later I was asked to attend a second round interview in Drogheda in the ICL Head Office. Interviewers this time were the HR Director, Managing Director and the Sales & Marketing Director. Again this interview was mainly based on my CV, hobbies, interests and projects and also my work experience to date, which was all in medical device companies. I was asked questions about why I wanted to work in Irish Cement and what I could offer to the company.

Approximately 1 month later I received a letter offering me the position of mechanical engineer in the maintenance department in Irish Cement Platin Works in Drogheda. I was also sent a contract outlining the terms of my employment, which I signed as acceptance of the job.
