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.

Martina Cripps Environmental and Natural Resource Management

I graduated from LIT with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Environmental and Natural Resource Management & I am currently working as an Environmental Scientist for ECOS Environmental Consultants in Limerick. In the course of my job with ECOS, I have gained experience across many different business sectors and a broad range of projects relating to water, waste, waste-water including resource management, circular economy, licensing and permits and environmental monitoring and management.

My course at LIT equipped me with a broad range of skills not only from an environmental perspective but also from a business and project management standpoint. I have also carried out independent research on species of primary concern in the Slieve Bloom Mountains.  As part of this research, I applied skills such as ecology and earth science, GIS, research techniques and field studies all of which I developed in my time studying at LIT.

The modules covered on the course have well prepared me for a career in the environmental sector.  I would recommend this course to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the environmental sector.

For me, it started in LIT
