Being a self-employed artist is probably the most difficult job really. You need to be highly motivated in the tasks you set for yourself. You need to be able to work on your inspirations and be totally focused on your targets. If your painting does not work first time you need to be able to learn from your experience and use what worked in another piece. Your ability to have confidence in your journey exploring your choice of subjects in paint is important. As regards doing workshops, bringing fun into the entire effort is the most important element to achieve. Your audiences will learn in a more sustainable way and produce drawings to be proud of.

Realist?
Realist
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.

SAS Ireland hub brings 40 new jobs

Scandinavian airline SAS is to establish a new HQ in Ireland. The new unit is expected to employ 40 people in Dublin by the end of the year.

SAS will also have bases in Spain and London for its new new leisure-focused operation. The airline announced plans for the new Ireland-based unit last month, saying that the decision to establish the new operation here is a result of intense competition in the European airline market, and rising demand for leisure travel.

Called SAS Ireland, its first flight is expected to take-off in November. 

The SAS Ireland unit will use nine new Airbus A320neo aircraft. The fleet will require about 90 pilots and 180 cabin crew.

The recruitment process has already begun for a full-time CEO for SAS Ireland and for other senior executive roles.

Details of career opportunities and current vacancies with SAS Ireland are available here.
