Featured Advice
What are your interests?



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.

What is an Occupation

Often the terms job, occupation and career are used interchangeably. In fact, they have very different meanings. On this site we use them to mean the following:

A job is a work role with a specific organisation (paid or unpaid). Example: Auditor at CRH Group.

An occupation is a wide category of jobs with similar characteristics. Example: physician, engineer, educator, or scientist.

A career is a lifetime journey of building and making good use of your skills, knowledge and experiences.

Using this search you can explore hundreds of occupations. For many we include interviews with people doing that job, and discuss their career journey so far.
