Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

How STEM is transforming food production

How STEM is transforming food production

Healthy foods, healthy bodies 

A household name, Keelings in north Dublin is probably best known for providing fruit all year round to supermarkets. But there’s something else they love to grow too: data and business intelligence. Keelings has developed its own software to monitor and manage the various processes involved in growing and supplying fresh produce to retailers.

“It’s a game-changer,” says CEO, Caroline Keeling. ”But we still need human insight, and we will continue to need it even as technology integrates more and more into the business of Produce. Technology development might feel fast now but it is going to get even faster. This will give us more information and we need the skills and expertise to use that information to help us grow and source higher quality produce more efficiently and more cost-effectively.”
