What are your interests?



The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

Financial Services

Financial Services

We are all familiar with the high street banks and building societies visible in towns and cities around the country, but Ireland is also recognised internationally as a centre for commercial financial services.

Financial services are the broader range of supports and services the financial sector requires to manage money and facilitate transactions. These include fund management and administration, portfolio management, underwriting, financial advice and credit card companies.

A seemingly niche financial series sector with a particularly large presence in Ireland is aircraft leasing and financing.
