What are your interests?

Social?

Social

The Social person's interests focus on interacting with the people in their environment. In all cases, the Social person enjoys the personal contact with 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.

Intel Women In Technology Scholarship

Applications Open Now

Intel Women In Technology Scholarship

Applications for Intel’s Women in Technology scholarships are open until the 6th of October.

This initiative is geared towards female students who have completed secondary school in 2019 and have gone on to enrol in specific 4-year science, technology and engineering courses in any of 21 selected higher education institutes across Ireland.

Eligible courses include Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, Software Engineering, Electronic, and Computer Engineering or equivalent (including general Engineering, leading to specialisation in Electronic or Computer Engineering).

The scholarship programme will provide their successful candidates with a €3,000 grant per annum along with opportunities for work placements at one of Intel’s Irish sites, located in Leixlip and Shannon respectively. In addition to this, each scholarship recipient will be assigned a mentor by Intel for assistance and advice during their academic tenure.

Intel have been running their scholarship initiative for over a decade and have invested more than €1,000,000 to their cause. The Women in Technology Scholarship initiative is aimed at the empowerment of young women and encouraging them to participate, prosper, and lead in the global economy.

In October of 2018, Intel announced that in the U.S. they had surpassed their own expectations by achieving their goal of full representation with regards to underrepresented women and minorities in the workplace 2 years earlier than their 2020 target.

The tech giant’s commitment to diversity is reflected in the $300 million they have invested since 2015 which paved the way for women and others in underrepresented minority groups to engage with STEM programmes, grants and mentorships provided by Intel to further their careers.

Full information as well as a breakdown of the eligible criteria can be found here on Intel’s website.

Applications for the Intel Women in Technology Scholarship are open until October 6th and the application form can be accessed here.

More information on careers in these sectors can be found here.
