The job that I do is highly specialised and the skills that I am required to have to do my job can only be acquired in our restaurant. However, by taking a job in McDonald's you are opening a career path to use those skills anywhere - the skills you acquire are very transferable. It doesn’t matter where you start, the opportunities are there.

Realist?
Realist
Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

  Hint: ESB

The job is very dynamic and varied. Since joining ESBI I have been involved in engineering, business development and the CDM process. I am currently exposed to legal contracts and financial models. The job is definitely not boring!

The great thing about ESBI is that there is the opportunity to move around within the company and experience different roles.

I also really like the people I work with. The majority of the Carbon Solutions team are female which is a pleasant change in an engineering company!

The other great thing is the travel.
