Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalist's 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.

A Career as a Business Analyst

A Career as a Business Analyst

We turn the spotlight on business analysts, the professionals who study a business, identify blind spots, and make recommendations to streamline and improve the efficiency of an organisation.

Business analysts are there to help businesses accomplish more by sussing out problems and finding solutions to those problems. Oftentimes, the issues are computer based and the business analyst will work with the IT department.

Since a business analyst's role involves providing advice and proposing recommendations, and explaining problems and technical issues in non-technical terms to management and decision-makers, a business analyst must possess excellent communication skills.

Objectivity, an excellent eye for detail, and computer, analytical and problem-solving skills will also serve a business analyst well.

In terms of an educational background, a degree related to IT or programming would be desirable.

In Ireland, a business analyst can expect to earn an annual salary between €27,027- €62,740, according to PayScale.com.
