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.

Graduate Testimonial: Advanced Administration

Graduate Testimonial: Advanced Administration

My name is Orla Leech and I spent two years in Moate Business College from 2013-2015.  In my first year in Moate I completed the Level 5 Business and Office Adminsitration course where I studied a number of modules including bookkeeping, spreadsheets, word processing, text production and legal studies.  

After getting an insight into the office environment, I decided this was a career I would like to persue so I spent my second year in the college completing the Level 6 Advanced Adminstration course. 

In my second year I was greatly encouraged by the tutors in the college to apply to complete my work placement in the HSE, I secured a place there where I spent a number of weeks where I got a huge scope into the different deparments within the hospital.  I thoroughly enjoyed this work placement and I knew this was the future career I would like to persue.  After the completion of my course in 2015 I was offered a position in the HSE. 

I would highly recommend the college to anyone, especially the extremly helpful tutors who gave me the encouragement every day to work towards persuing a life long career.  I have learned so many skills and abilities from the time I have spent in the college, along with meeting some great people that I will have with me for many years to come.
