Naturalist?
Naturalist 
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

  Hint: CRH plc

I heard of my current job from an advertisment on the University of Limerick careers brochure.

I sent in my CV via email, and recieved notification shortly afterwards that I was being selected for an interview.

I attended the 1st interview and was interviewed by the then Works Engineer and two representatives for HR.

The second interview was with the Works Manager and the HR Manager for the group. Both interviews were relaxed overall, but questions were still tough.

I felt the main objective of both interviews was to extract what type of person I was, my personality traits, and how I would "fit" into the organisation.

I was told I was successful over the phone by a HR represenative from Irish Cement.
