What are your interests?

Social?

Social

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.

Student Stories - Why they love Pearse College

Posted on December 4, 2018


My time in Pearse College has enriched my life in many ways. It has provided me with the necessary tools to enhance my skills in my field of choice which is foreign languages… and to pursue further studies. My experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them for anything!

Hi… I would just like to thank you for all your effort throughout the year.  I have been accepted into NUI Maynooth for Arts.  I enjoyed my year in Pearse College on the University Access course and without it, I would not have progressed to third level.

From practical gardening .. to botany and chemistry, the course at Pearse College gave me a great grounding and opening up a world of possibilities…. It was varied and fun and the staff was always encouraging and supportive.  I would recommend it to anyone considering a career in horticulture.

When I decided to go back to school at 32, I was fortunate in my choice of Pearse College: not only were the teachers ready to give me all the help and support I needed to do well, but they also made me feel that both my background and my individuality were important parts of my education.

I successfully completed my studies in Architectural Technology and then worked as a technologist in Sydney, Singapore and Hong Kong.  I have since set up my own company Palmer, Whelan and Associates.
