Career Development Opportunities for Students and Grads

 By Alex Hargreaves

Career Development has been defined as a lifelong process of managing your learning, work, leisure and transitions in order to move toward a constantly evolving and improving future.  It basically means making a commitment to yourself to not let your graduation date be your end of learning date (even though it may be tempting to chuck in the towel and get complacent).

Career Development is learning new skills and ideas throughout every stage of your career and your life in general.  People who value Career Development tend to get promoted easier and have less trouble adapting to changes in the work place.  It’s not a bad habit to get into!

The opportunity to work remotely may be easier than you think

By Patricia Whiting

What do you think of when you hear the term ‘working remotely’? Is it a vision of someone working in a rural region? Or do you imagine an adventurer, trekking through the Amazon in a remote area away from civilization?

Working remotely is as simple as not working at a physical location. Instead, it is the ability to work from home or other sites that are not the office. You are connected to your office through the internet and other technological advancements.

Studying a Masters/Grad Cert/PhD – Is it worth it?

By Alex Hargreaves

Have you ever considered studying a postgraduate degree but have immediately come up with a million excuses not to pursue it?  Despite all of the many reservations you may have, studies have shown that graduates with post graduate qualification earn a median salary of $80,000.  This is above the national average of $78,832. Furthermore, postgraduate qualifications can help you to completely change career direction, advance your current career, learn new skills and be taken seriously in the work place.

There are many perks, but there are also considerable downsides.  Going back to university also means going back to late nights, weekends spent on Google Scholar and for those who will be studying full time, adopting a new diet consisting of noodles, energy drinks and the occasional McDonalds splurge.
