Learn as much as you can in any situation that presents itself. Never be afraid to try something even if it scares you to do so. And give it all you have. Be a good listener and a good communicator and be fair.

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.

Limerick & Thurles

LIT’s Moylish and Thurles Campuses will host the annual SciFest competitions in Moylish Campus, Limerick on April 27th & Thurles Campus on May 3rd with schools from across the region competing on both campuses and showcasing their scientific projects.

The event is hosted annually by LIT’s Department of Applied Science, which offers a broad range of degrees across areas such as Applied Biology, Medical Technology, Environmental Science, Pharmaceutical & Forensic Science and Drug & Medicinal Product Analysis.

Each year the judging panel continue to be impressed with the skills, energy, enthusiasm and creativity of the students, along with the high standard of research, display and communication.
