Enterprising

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.

About

Every day, thousands of people attend art galleries, museums or book launches. Festivals and markets held across the country every day add to the cultural vibrancy of the country. All of this requires professionals, to curate museums and organise events. As we become a more international society, with business from around the world based here, the demand for language skills is increasing. People with language skills will find opportunities in many areas including tourism, translation and international sales.
