Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Marie O'Donovan from CRH plc to give some advice for people considering this job:
You should possibly consider studying environmental science or environmental engineering in third level.
You would also need to consider if you would like do quite a bit of driving during your day and to be able to oragnise your own work plans as both these things are important.
What are your interests?
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and are drawn to commerce, trade and making deals. Some pursue sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
