Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their most productive under supervisors who give clear guidelines and while performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

What is Work Experience?

During Transition Year, and sometimes in pre-Leaving Cert. years, students around Ireland take time out from their studies to get work experience. These valuable opportunities are a chance to see what it might be like to work in an area you are interested in when you finish your education, and may be highly influential in your future career choices. This may be because you really liked the work and want to continue with it, or because you didnít like it and decide to change direction.

You gain work experience through a placement with an employer, which typically involves working alongside professionals as they go about their daily business. It is an excellent opportunity to observe what skills are being used to get the job done successfully, as well as developing some of those skills yourself. Behaving maturely and taking up the responsibility necessary to succeed in the workplace are also important steps in your personal development.
