I would advise them to get themselves physically fit and to maintain it. I would also say that a sense of humour is very important and the ability to laugh at themselves. They should have self discipline and be prepared to accept imposed discipline. Punctuality is very important as is respect for others. If they had sporting interests that would be a help.

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.

IT Tralee at Agri Careers Fair RDS Dublin

IT Tralee has a good reputation within the industry for its Bachelor of Science (BSc) degrees in agriculture, agricultural engineering and agricultural mechanisation.

Situated at the foot of Ireland, it offers both a level 7 and 8 BSc in agriculture degree, promising to give its students a sound scientific foundation with modules in different areas including animal, crop, environmental and food sciences.

There is also a level 7 and 8 BSc in agricultural engineering degree available that aims to provide students with a good knowledge of agricultural engineering and at the same time have expertise in management and related skills in marketing and finance.

The college has a level 7 BSc degree in agricultural mechanisation on offer too and there will be representatives from the institute present on the day to answer any questions you have. To apply for this, students have to secure work placement from an employer and apply directly to IT Tralee’s development office.

Level 7 degrees consist of three years’ study and give the option of an add-on year to reach a level 8 honours degree, while the level 8 degrees are four years long at the IT.
