I would advise to any young person to go to college first and/or travelling and gain some life experience as this will help you deal/cope with situations a lot better.

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.

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.
