Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Tourism & Travel Graduate

Kaylon O’Leary

I completed the Tourism and Travel Level 5 course and I am currently in DIT studying a Level 8 degree programme in Events Management. I believe if I had not attended Monaghan Institute after my Leaving Cert, I would definitely not be in a degree programme, as I gained so much throughout the course.

I learned many skills including referencing, note taking and the importance of attendance. These skills have proved invaluable to me this year in DIT. The time management skills I learned in Monaghan Institute have also benefited me, as I am now organising events and I have learned to structure my time carefully to ensure I meet deadlines. I really enjoyed all the modules and they have proven beneficial as I continue my studies.

My fondest memory of the Tourism course is going to Waterford Airport for our day of Cabin Crew Training, it was the best day of the entire college year. We learned so many practical skills in the aircraft. It was a great opportunity to get to know my classmates. I have gained so much from the Travel and Tourism course and would highly recommend it to anyone.
