Creative?

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

So you want to be an Electrical Engineer?

Without electrical engineers, much of the electrical equipment consumers rely on daily just wouldn’t function, or even exist.

Electrical engineers' speciality is designing, testing, maintaining and improving electrical equipment, such as motors, power generators, and lighting and wiring systems, and to carry out these responsibilites well electrical engineers must exercise solid skills in communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and attention to detail.

Engineering companies and businesses in the manufacturing and research industries will likely employ most electrical engineers, who typically work in office environments. On occasion, however, they may have to conduct site visits to inspect and correct problems.

Careers in electrical engineering generally require a minimum of a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, and electrical engineers may even need to be licensed to work.

In Ireland, an electrical engineer can expect to earn an annual salary of €27,667-€71,845, according to PayScale.com.
