The S Model takes its first trip to a Brisbane university

By Alex Hargreaves 

On the 21st of March, the Tesla S Model made its first appearance on a university campus.  That university was GRIFFITH.  If you were lucky enough to be at Nathan that day or if made an effort to be there for the event, you would have had the privilege of gracing your eyes over the shiny, black, energy efficient automobile that Tesla is famous for.  You can have your own Tesla S Model for a mere drive away price of $131743.  If that doesn’t motivate you to aim for a high paying graduate job, I don’t know what will.

Surviving your first day in a new job

By Alex Hargreaves

Walking into the work place on the first day of your brand new job can be a terrifying experience. After hearing the news that you got the job, you most likely spent the following days phoning your parents, bumping fists with your friends and jumping around in excitement over the glorious news that you managed to talk someone into giving you a real job. It is great to think that whilst other people probably applied for the job, YOU were the chosen one. What a way to stroke your ego. Not only this, but there will now be an endless supply of money gradually flowing into your bank account.  You know that even if your new job doesn’t sound very entertaining, not being poor is awesome and worth being excited about.  However, after the celebration ends, D day must come.  It’s time to prove that all of those stories you told about yourself in the job interview are actually true.  If your new boss thinks you can speak fluent Japanese, you might want to be able to say more than konitchiwa before the big day. Even though it’s scary to think about your first day on the job, we have some tips that you can use to take the edge off.

Have a holly jolly job search

 By Alex Hargreaves in collaboration with The Library Social Media Team

With Christmas on the way, it’s a good idea to start thinking about how you can earn a  little extra cash over the holiday period.  If you’re unemployed, you will probably have  an abundance of free time on your hands. It’s a great idea to invest that time into  gaining work experience and earning money. Your friends and family will be grateful  for it too as you can ditch the home made jewelry/scrapbook and buy your loved ones  something they really want this year. Christmas is an ideal time to get a job, as so many  more jobs become available due to the uprise of people filling up the shopping isles and  lining up in the centre food courts.  In fact, studies show that casual job openings  increase by 170% during the Christmas period, with 87% of those jobs being created by  the retail industry. Here are some easy tips you can put into practice to help you land a  casual gig these holidays!
