Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of 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.

Kieran Murphy PWC and former Cork Hurler

I graduated from LIT as a Chartered Quantity Surveyor. One of the things that attracted me to the course was its reputation as one of the most respected courses of its kind, with an international standing.

After graduating, I went on to be part of the management teams on major projects, including the development of Opera Lane in Cork city centre.

My time in LIT was very enjoyable. My lecturers were always available to me, and being in LIT felt like being part of a community.

The college supported me in my inter-county hurling career, and I was part of two LIT Fitzgibbon Cup winning teams. I now work with PWC, the largest professional services firm in Ireland.

For me, it started in LIT
