Some may think that you can go untrained into fishing. The best advice I would give people considering fishing as a profession is to get training. Fishing is an all encompassing career - when you need to go fishing, the rest of your life goes on hold unfortunately. It is very unpredictabe because you could be fishing non stop for three weeks and tied up for two.

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.

Architecture - DT101
 

This five year programme covers topics such as design studio, history theory and criticism of architecture, environment, construction, visual and digital communications, computer applications and law. The majority of the student experience centres around studio based design projects which allow the student to design buildings and explore the urban and rural context. There is a strong emphasis on studio work and exploring the students’ own understanding of architecture throughout the programme.

Students considering this career should have a creative aptitude for architectural design and the organisational ability to implement their designs in practice. They should also have an interest in artistic and cultural aspects of society as well as an aptitude for technical and managerial challenges.

The DIT degree in Architecture is recognised throughout EU member states. Following two years of postgraduate experience they may take the examination in Professional Competence and thus become members of the R.I.A.I and register as an architect.
