Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Maxi Zoo announces 50 new jobs  


Monday, February 21, 2011 




Maxi Zoo announces 50 new jobs Pet retailer Maxi Zoo is planning to create 50 new employment positions, the company has announced.

The company, which currently has stores in Limerick, Longford, Dublin, Wicklow and Cork, is planning to open two new shops over the coming months, bringing its total number of outlets in Ireland to 11.

Darren Spoonley, Maxi Zoo's head of sales in Ireland, said the new jobs will be located across the country.

"Whilst the new stores will be located in Maynooth and Dublin, a variety of positions across all levels are available nationwide," he said.

The company is still hoping to open further shops in the future, Mr Spoonley added.

"Due to continued market demand we are always on the look out for new store locations," he noted.

The news comes as the Sunday Business Post reported that US retailer Abercrombie & Fitch will create up to 300 jobs in Dublin when it opens a new store in the capital this year.

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.
