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.

Data Analytics plays huge role in STEM innovation

Data Analytics adds value

“I work with businesses that are looking to innovate, and data analytics plays a huge role. At The Dock, Accenture’s Global Innovation Centre in Dublin, I help companies to build solutions that embed artificial intelligence, or AI, into their processes.

AI can bring huge benefits to businesses in this way, including creating smarter products and ways of doing business, and it can reduce costs and make workforces more productive and efficient.

Students wishing to work in the area of AI and data analytics often benefit from a grounding in and interest in maths, experience in computer coding and knowledge of data engineering, business processes and end-user design.

There are lots of other attributes too that help when working on the technical side of business, including communication skills, and being able to scope the size of work to be done, with clear deliverables and then commit to working to deadlines.”
