Try and get as much practical experience before entering the job as possible.

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.

320 full and part time jobs with Chopped

Healthy food chain Chopped has announced plans to create 430 jobs in Ireland and the UK. The popular food chain is doubling its footprint here with the opening of 20 new outlets and 320 jobs. It is also expanding into the UK for the first time, with 6 branches set to open by the middle of the year.

320 full and part time jobs will come on stream in Ireland in 2017, as the company opens new outlets in Wicklow, Cork, Waterford, and Dublin.

Speaking at the announcement, Brian Lee, co-founder and managing director of Chopped commented: "Last year we set a target of increasing our staff numbers by 100 and we exceeded that expectation by increasing our employees by 140 in 2016. "When we received the keys for our first store five years ago, we knew it was the beginning of something great, but we still believe this is only the beginning for Chopped. Our staff are what makes Chopped the success it has become and we are looking forward to seeing our family grow as we expand across Ireland and beyond," he added.

Commenting on the new jobs, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O'Connor said that indigenous Irish businesses such as Chopped are important to the national economy as well as making a valuable contribution to local areas through employment and expenditure.  "Ireland has one of the fastest growing employment rates in Europe and it is home grown companies such as Chopped that are helping to sustain this," the minister added.
