Enterprising?
Enterprising 
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.

First Steps

The First Steps program is part of the EU Youth Guarantee and will offer a young person aged 18 to 24, who has had little or no experience of working, the opportunity to learn basic work skills and social skills while on a placement in a real work situation.

The First Steps program is similar to the JobBridge Internship scheme in the following ways:

  • Appointment of a mentor
  • An Employer/Intern agreement outlining activities/skills obtained
  • Monitoring of the Internship's progress
  • Payment of a €52.50 top up each week to the participant jobseeker
  • 6 or 9 month duration

The first intake of interns is anticipated to take place in March 2015 with further intakes throughout the year. DSP staff select suitable candidates and refer them for interview.
