I would highly recommend this job but I’d say to start taking insurance exams as soon as possible and get them done while you’re young.

I’d also recommend talking to as many people in the industry to see what area of insurance you want to go into i.e. Insurer, Broker, Loss Adjuster etc. – they’re very different!

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of 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.

LinkedIn has opened a new EMEA HQ in Dublin

LinkedIn opened its brand new new, state-of-the-art 17,650 sq m Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) HQ at Wilton Place in Dublin today. An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald officiated at the launch event.

The new building is the first that LinkedIn has built outside the USA - the result of an €85 million investment. The development was undertaken to meet the needs of LinkedIn’s growing workforce in Ireland, which has increased from three employees to 1,200 in just seven years.

Linkedin’s Dublin operation serves the entire EMEA region and supports customers and members across two continents. The workforce includes people from 55 nations, in functions including sales, marketing, customer service, finance, analytics and engineering.

LinkedIn is continuing to hire in Dublin, with more than 80 jobs currently advertised.
