3 main things:

1. Be organised.

2. Try to keep a positive attitude.

3. Persevere. Working in a Design Evaluation role or indeed any electronic engineering role, requires problem-solving skills and half the battle with this is having a positive attitude. If you have a negative/pessimistic attitude, the battle to find a solution is lost before you even start. In debugging an issue, start with the basics and work from there. Like peeling an onion, gradually peel off the outter layers to reveal the inner core of the you work, you get more clues and develop a better understanding of the product/issue you are working on.


The Investigative person will usually find a particular area of science to be of interest. They are inclined toward intellectual and analytical activities and enjoy observation and theory. They may prefer thought to action, and enjoy the challenge of solving problems with clever technology. They will often follow the latest developments in their chosen field, and prefer mentally stimulating environments.

400 financial services jobs for Limerick

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor, Minister for Finance Michael Noonan and financial service company Northern Trust, have today announced expansion plans for the company's operations in Ireland.

The plans include the creation of an additional 400 jobs. Total jobs will come on stream over a 5-year period, with recruitment already underway for a variety of roles. Details of career opportunities with Northern Trust are available here.

A leading financial services institution, Northern Trust has had a presence here since 1989 and opened its Dublin office in 2000. The Limerick office opened in 2007 employing just 19 staff. Today the company employs 1,000 people across its two sites in Limerick at Hamilton House and City East Plaza. 

The expansion is supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland and marks the fourth time Northern Trust has significantly expanded its operations in Limerick.
