Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.
We asked Nicola O'Higgins from Bord Iascaigh Mhara to give some advice for people considering this job:
You need to work with people in the industry as knowledge is everything - where to buy, who from, when etc. Health and safety courses and a pleasant manner and drive are also important.
What are your interests?
Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.
