Is A Career Change Your New Year’s Resolution?

Jenna Meyerson 03/02/2020

 

At times, many of us find ourselves in an unfulfilling career, but the thought of changing jobs sounds intimidating and scary. So we end up delaying the change for as long as possible because it can be daunting to go into the unknown all alone.

Changing careers requires you to have a certain experience and skill set, or at least some working knowledge of your new career path. Even if you know your unique calling, you might lack the experience that a potential employer wants.

But despite all the financial and psychological hurdles, many people brave the winds of change to find more fulfilling careers – and they are much better off for it.

Jenna Meyerson 15/01/2020

 

Australia has the safest workplaces in the world, and it’s commendable that local businesses are committed to building even safer offices and factories because their conviction is paying off.

While the number of Australians killed at work has been declining steadily over the last decade, we can’t afford to be complacent just yet. Recent statistics show that 107,335 workers’ compensation claims were made in 2017-18, while the median compensation paid for each claim was AU$12,100.

23% of the claims were due to slips, trips and falls due to an absence of proper instructions regarding workplace health and safety – and 16% reported injuries were caused by moving objects.

Employers need to raise awareness about health and safety by implementing the right policies and training for the staff. Then it becomes the employees’ job to adhere to these rules to avoid potential safety and health problems.

Studying online is the new black. Smartphones and the Internet have taken our lives to a whole new level and have made studying more accessible. As classrooms slowly shift from a physical space to a digital one - making it more convenient, it can also come with its own set of challenges.
