The very goal of every graduate is to find a decent job. On the other hand, every organization knows the value behind the employment of competent and skilled employees. They know that once they have employed the right kind of employee and place them in a position that can best reflect their skills and competence is absolutely important in organizational success. However, for some businesses that have bigger sets of connections and extensions, there must be somebody or something that will serve as the mediator between the two entities. This is where the human resources sets in. The human resources department bridges the gap between the job seekers or employees and the management. For this reason, every institution, whether private or government-owned businesses are equipped with highly competent human resource department that facilitates the training, hiring of job applicants, and other labor-related concerns. Before, the primary work of anybody who is in the human resource department would have to perform the clerical function of an institution, like manipulating the inquiries of every employee or the management of interviews, recruiting, and hiring of new employees or personnel in conformity to the rules and regulations of the company. Nowadays, the human resource department acts individually and generates suggestions. If before they are concealed behind the top executives of the company, human resources these days can already make recommendations and modification of the company policy. Hence, people are assured of a more competent and highly productive human resource department. Human Resources Management The primary goal of the human resource department is to provide quality services to the public by providing them jobs that work best for them. Hence, it is the duty of the human resources department to supervise the “human resources” of the company. In fact, experts say that it is the most significant part of the job. The people behind this department should be well equipped with the proper communication skills in order to reach out with the employees so that the problems will be solved and the necessities met. The duties of the human resources management include career development, hiring, compensation, training, benefits, and other purposes. This is the very delicate portion of the job because managing a multitude of people is not an easy thing. That is why for those who wish to engage in this kind of job, it is best that they try to finish off a masteral degree in Human Resource Management. S specialization is extremely necessary in order to stay knowledgeable in doing this kind of job. Human Resources Careers In spite of the many difficulties that the human resources department may encounter, there are still many opportunities of developing a career in this department as well. However, for those who wish to develop a career in the human resources department, one must hold a bachelor’s degree that entails a fair set of courses in general business, accounting and statistics, behavioral sciences, business and labor law, and economics. Basically, there are two kinds of career in this department: the human resources specialist and the generalist. Employing one over the other is actually dependent on the size of the institution. This is because the human resources generalist is applicable for a small institution, while the specialist constitutes the broader horizon of the bigger organizations. The next position available is the “directory of human resources.” The person involved here handles mostly the supervision of the different human resources department within a bigger organization. Each human resources department is supervises by the managers. They are the ones that are responsible in dividing the different employees according to their position and their specific field of expertise. For recruitment, the recruiters are the ones that handle the job. They are the ones who maintain a close connection in the society, hence, they travel frequently. They are the ones that will conduct interviews, and evaluations on the applicants. They are also the ones that do the background checking as stated in the references of the applicants. These are just some of the available positions within the human resources department. Indeed, this is the part of the organization that best serve the main component of an organization — the people. Without this kind of department that specializes in managing and employing people, the institution might have been in disarray. Hence, human resources are not just mere job. It is a tough responsibility that only the competent and dedicated people should try to engage to.

Virtual Assistant job opportunities are out there, you just have to know how and where to find them. Here are some ideas to get you started: 1. Your Current and Former Employers The first place to start is your current and former employers. If you are currently working or have worked for someone, let them know about your company and what you are doing. A plus to "advertising" with them is that they already know you, your qualities, your personality, and the quality of work you provide. Draw up a proposal. Let them know how utilizing your services can benefit their company. 2. Job Boards and Search Engines Careerbuilder, Monster, and HotJobs are examples of job boards. Google and Yahoo are examples of search engines. You can use both to find clients who are looking for help by using specific keywords. Keywords are what you type in when you are searching for something on the internet. The more specific your keyword is, the more relevant the results will be. For example, a generic keyword like "work at home" will more than likely return a lot of scams. Most legitimate companies don't post job leads using those phrases. Here is an example list of keywords you can use when searching for clients. Example Keywords: • "remote contractor" • "must have home office" • "independent contractor" • "freelance" • "freelance job/s" • "1099 Contractor" • "Virtual Assistant" • "remote office" • "1099 employee" • "must have home computer" • "virtual worker/employee" • "online work" • "telework" You can also use these keywords with search engines like Google and Yahoo. Note: Make sure to put the "" marks before and after the phrase. Surrounding your keywords with quotations shows more specific results from the search engines. The search engines will only show the results with that exact phrase. If you don't use them, it will look for either/or. 3. Fee-Based Websites Fee-based websites have already completed the hard work for you. These sites have searched the internet, job boards, etc., and found the legitimate jobs for you. All you have to do is apply. Buyers beware, however; not all fee-based job sites are legitimate. Make sure you do thorough research of the company. 4. Freelance Websites You can also browse some freelance job sites like Guru and Elance. These sites allow freelancers to bid on projects posted by individuals or companies. If your bid is accepted you will be awarded the project. Most of these projects are short-term, but are a great way to build your clientele and your portfolio. 5. Work At Home Websites There are also some free work-at-home websites that you can use to find clients. This has its pros and cons. Most of the time the job leads are unresearched, limited, and old. Also you can be sure that they have been applied to many times by others seeking work at home jobs. The upside is that someone has kindly searched for and posted these job leads for you. You will still need to research these job leads for legitimacy. 6. In Your Neighborhood Well…not literally in your neighborhood, but you know what I mean. In other words, in the area you live. Why not have some flyers made and pass them out to local vendors? You can also have them posted in local grocery stores. Have some business cards made and leave them with local business owners and managers. Have your business cards handy to pass out when you meet people. This is a good networking strategy as well. Be prepared to explain what you do when someone asks. I remember when I started my Virtual Assistant Business people would ask me what I do and I found it hard to explain. So be prepared and keep it simple. 7. Networking and Word of Mouth Networking and word of mouth is an excellent way to get your name and company out there. Get to know fellow Virtual Assistants. Sometimes they will have an overflow of work and will subcontract or outsource the work to another Virtual Assistant (VA). Joining associations and organizations is another way to network. There are several organizations out there just for VAs. Some VAs have found success in locating clients by joining their local Chamber of Commerce. So now you know how and where to find the virtual assistant job opportunities and clients. Go get them.....
Unfortunately, high hopes and large amounts of time, energy and commitment -- valuable though they may be -- do not ensure the success of an entrepreneurial venture. In fact, research indicates that about 60 percent of all businesses fail within the first two years. Much depends on the individual's "entrepreneurial profile," and one of the best ways to discover this is by doing a self-assessment. Over the years, working with some 4,000 Virtual Assistants and Virtual Professionals in 65+ countries and being entrepreneurs ourselves, we've developed a good practical sense of the traits that successful entrepreneurs share. We used this background in designing the application process for our Portable Career & Virtual Assistant Training Program for Military Spouses™, and it has helped substantially in identifying candidates with the greatest likelihood of success both in training and afterward, as they launch and grow their virtual businesses. The following Entrepreneurial Self-Assessment is adapted from the online application form for our Virtual Assistant training program. This series of 13 questions is one of the tools we use to see if an applicant has characteristics commonly found in successful business owners.

I delegate as much as possible and let people execute tasks with little supervision. C. I delegate and jump in to help every chance I get. 05. Can you lead others? A. I have to push hard, but can make people perform. B. I don't have to do much to get people moving. C. I usually let someone else get things moving. 06. Will you have family support? A. My family will complain if I have less free time. B. My family is likely to know that I am trying to plan for our future and will understand long hours. C. My family will likely want to get involved with my work and help in any way possible. 07. Can you take responsibility? A. I'll take over if I have to, but I'd rather let someone else be responsible. B. I let people who are more outgoing or eager than me take the lead. C. I like to take charge of and see things through. 08. How are your organizational skills? A. I like to have a plan before I start. B. I often have trouble setting priorities. C. I have trouble juggling many types of responsibility. 09. Can you "stick with it"? A. I don't let anything stop me from pursuing my goals, even if it means sacrificing other activities or projects. B. If a plan isn't going as expected, I don't waste any more time on it. C. I put in as much time as necessary to make a project successful, while balancing it with other priorities, and don't stop until it's done. 10. What expectations do you have for your work schedule? A. I'd like to have more free time in my new business. B. When someone starts their own business, they're always on the clock. C. I plan to work hard, but want to limit the amount of time I spend on the business. 11. Can you make decisions effectively? A. I need plenty of time to make a decision, or I regret it. B. I am a fast thinker and usually make an acceptable decision. C. I usually let other people make decisions because I'm afraid of being wrong. 12. Can people trust what you say? A. Sometimes I just say what people want to hear. B. My word is as good as gold. C. All's fair in business, right? I say what I have to 13. When I am in an unfamiliar place with new people, I usually A. Sit back and observe other people. B. Talk to many people about myself and my business. C. Ask many questions to get to know new people. Scoring your responses: A number value (in parenthesis) has been assigned to each of the possible responses to the 13 questions. Simply write the corresponding number next to the letter you selected for each question. 01. A (3), B (8), C (5) 02. A (2), B (8), C (4) 03. A (2), B (8), C (5) 04. A (1), B (8), C (6) 05. A (5), B (8), C (4) 06. A (2), B (6), C (7) 07. A (2), B (5), C (8) 08. A (7), B (3), C (4) 09. A (5), B (2), C (7) 10. A (1), B (7), C (5) 11. A (4), B (8), C (2) 12. A (4), B (8), C (1) 13. A (1), B (4), C (8) What your score means: 42 or less If you scored 42 or less, it's unlikely you possess the characteristics necessary to be successful in running your own business. 43 to 54 While a score between 43 and 54 indicates you exhibit some of the core characteristics necessary to succeed in running your own business, you are likely to find many difficulties in self-employment and could often feel obliged to "act out of character" to succeed. 55 to 65 Achieving a score between 55 and 65 indicates you possess good entrepreneurial traits and should have a very good chance of being a successful entrepreneur. 66 or higher Achieving a score of 66 or higher indicates you possess top-notch entrepreneurial characteristics and should have an excellent chance of success in your own small business. Of course, successful people come in many shapes and forms, and there is no "one size fits all" assessment tool for entrepreneurship. Although this self-evaluation should help you better understand the mindset and character traits of successful entrepreneurs, and how you "stack up" relative to that group, in the end it will be your own unique personality and circumstances that will determine your own unique future.
Virtual Jobs. The future is here. With more companies downsizing, the need for a virtual employee or contractor, is increasing daily. Have you ever called a company and the customer service agent was in another country? That's because big corporations, like major toy stores, may get 100,000 incoming calls or more a day! To staff enough people taking those calls, would require a bigger call center building, agents, electricity, phones, computers, more fuel used for travel to and from the job site. Therefore, the need is apparent. But where do you find a good job, working at home? Search the internet for "work at home" and over 1.8 billion results are returned. Wow! That's a lot to sift through. That's exactly what I did. Day after day, searching for "work at home virtual jobs". I searched for months, till I found them. I applied, my son applied, and then my girlfriend applied. Took a bit more time than a regular out in the world application. But we were all hired. Great companies that hired work at home agents. We take inbound customer service calls for really big companies. Paid by the minute, we average $8-$18 per hour, depending on peak call times. Working at home is very rewarding from my side of the fence. I make my own schedule. I take off when I need, and I don't have to ask anybody. I will say, it does take a lot of discipline. So easy to take too much time off, you really have to treat it like any other job. Except for the drive to work. We have to be on time for the schedule we make. But the pro's far out weigh the con's. By now you are asking where do "I" find a job like that? I will give it away. After all of the research, I found about 33 companies, more as I check them out, that hire work at home agents. The list is totally free for anybody that wants it at thegadgitech on the work from home tab. I sincerely hope this information gets out to a lot of people in search of working at home. A lot of the 1.8 billion sites out there, charge for this kind of information. I give it away to help others help themselves.
Fresh out of college, most people are excited about landing that first job. Given that most grads do not have work experience or only had a part time job while studying, it is not easy to secure an executive position right away. Starting from scratch, one has no choice but to start from the bottom in an entry-level position then in time move to the top. The challenge most grads face in applying for a job is the competition. Aside from those who just graduated, there are also those who have left the previous job and are looking for a new one. According to hiring and compensation experts, there is not that much room to negotiate when one is just a fresh grad. This is because that person does not have substantial work experience as basis to negotiate for a higher wage compared to those who have already worked before. The range of the salary fresh grads get are based on the course one has finished in college. To those who volunteered to be surveyed, it was found that people who graduated from the sciences were able to get a higher salary compared to those who graduated from the liberal arts. A tip that may help a little in the negotiation process is knowing your potential and not easily giving in or selling yourself short. In the course of an interview, it will boil down to the how much you will be getting. Most fresh grads accept what is given immediately and reply “ok” ending it there. It is best to only talk about the salary when an offer has been made. If the interviewer is good, it can wait. During that time, one can try asking how much the company will give for someone in that position then be able to negotiate about that further later on regardless of the figure that was given. The applicant can then ask questions such as job responsibilities and mention that the contribution one can give to the company is more important than the salary you will be receiving showing the recruiter you are a team player. Applicants can negotiate more by doing research on how much other companies are offering for the same job before giving an immediate answer. By knowing that information, it is possible for you to negotiate the salary offered for a little more. Getting a job is not only about a salary. This includes other things that the company offers to its employees and by thoroughly checking out the other benefits and perks, it can also help in deciding whether the applicant should accept the job or not.

Are you one of those people who were not able to pursue your career further as you had to look for a job at an early age to support your family? Or, maybe your career options were limited and you did not have the means or the ability to pursue a particular career at that time. It is never too late to further your education and possibly improve your station in life. An online university degree from a reputable college is the best option for those students who want to enhance their career prospects and study after hours. Online degree courses are normally taken by people who have no time to attend a full time college but still would like to increase their knowledge in their respective fields. Online degree courses are available in literally all fields today like management, medical transcription services, hospitality management, medical sciences, nursing, health management, IT enabled services, graphics and animation and much, much more. Today’s online student can enroll in an online degree course at a university situated at the opposite end of the country or the world. He or she can register online for the courses or degree he is pursuing after filling out an application and paying the tuition fees by credit card or wire transfer. Once the university receives the fees, it will provide the course study material in the form of interactive CD ROMs, books, tapes, etc. Study material is also available in the form of online tutorials where you have to log in at the university website and download the tutorials in the form of E books. In general, getting admission for an online degree is easy and the timing of study is flexible. Therefore, the pros of an online degree are many in comparison to the cons. The cons are that online degree courses are not as much recognized as full time courses. There is literally no interaction between the students and the teachers; therefore, there are no discussions whatsoever. No one is immediately or physically approachable in the case you have questions when you study. This last con is being rectified. Through the use of WANs (Wide Area Networks), video conferencing is now made available to students. The students have to attend weekly classes where they can interact with their professors in other cities or countries through a live video session. During the video session the professors may conduct lectures on important topics and also give guidelines to the students regarding their approach to their studies and their attempt at the exams. The students can also discuss their questions with the professors and get them solved. In conclusion. we see that the online degree market has gained a lot of recognition and momentum worldwide. In one particular course you may find an American, a British, a Chinese and many more people from different nationalities and walks of life.. The universities keep on upgrading their study material based on their research and the students are exposed to the latest of what’s happening in the world. Getting an online degree is going to make you more confident and qualified. You will approach the professional world with more confidence than before. You will be more knowledgeable about the tactics and strategies to be used in your line of profession and you will more easily adjust to changes when required. And finally, it may help you make a better living than before.
The estimated shortage of 10,000 workers across the ACT could double over the next three years when large numbers of baby boomers retire. Public service job cutbacks in Tuesday week's Federal budget, tipped to cost Canberra up to 3000 positions, is likely to have little impact on the capital's worsening skills drought. Today, The Canberra Times begins a three-part series on the extent of the ACT skills drought, which is worse here than anywhere else in Australia, and what could be done to fix it. ACT Chamber of Commerce chief executive Chris Peters said business growth in the territory had been stalled for 18 months due to insufficient workers. "About two years ago staff shortages were No13 on businesses lists of concerns. It's been No1 for about 18 months, so it is the major impediment to business growth." The ACT Skills Commission and the chamber's research shows the ACT will continue to be hardest hit of all Australian states and territories from a shortage of skilled and unskilled workers. Access Economics research shows the ACT's population is biased towards the 45 to 59 age group. The demographics report compiled for the Skills Commission says the retirement timing of this age group and especially those aged 50 to 54 will have an even greater impact on the ACT workforce than it will nationally. Access Economics expects increasing labour force participation rates up to 2010, with a reversal of that trend from 2010 to 2015 and a sharp reduction in participation after then because the main part of the baby boom generation will have reached the age of 65. ACT Skills Commission chairman Derek Volker warns that today's delays will become tomorrow's disaster when too few people are available to look after elderly folk. "It is not a skills problem, it's more a people problem and if we don't do something about it, it could turn into a crisis not too far down the track." Home Help Service ACT, a not-for-profit organisation that provides in-home support to the elderly and frail aged, could place 20 people immediately in its stretched ranks of carers. Canberra employers scouring the country and overseas for employees are competing with the remainder of the western world which is suffering a skills drought. Mr Peters said three factors contributed to the territory's exceptional worker shortage: Having both the lowest unemployment (2.4 per cent) and highest participation rates in Australia, which meant there weren't too many stay-at-home mothers, or unemployed, to fill job vacancies; The ACT and Adelaide had Australia's two fastest aging populations; and Older public servants in a former superannuation scheme had to retire before 55 to maximise their superannuation benefits. "Canberra has the highest percentage of public servants than anywhere in Australia and they retire a decade earlier than the rest of Australia." Mr Peters said Federal budget cuts in two weeks were expected to cause a net loss of 1000 people from the Commonwealth Public Service. At best those leaving would have wide-ranging expertise. "It depends on what the mix is I expect the mix will be fairly broad, which would be widely welcomed by the business community, but all of those won't solve our problem." Shortages are in all sectors, from engineering, health, trades, services and construction. Multinational construction company Bovis Lend Lease said employers were competing with unprecedented building in the booming Middle East countries, and project directors could command salaries of up to $300,000. Hays senior regional director for Canberra Jane Donnelly said financial controllers and managers on salaries of up to $100,000 and $130,000 were in demand following the meltdown of global financial markets last year. "Within the banking sector they are far more aware of the risk associated with certain products, they are seeking people with extensive risk analyst-type skills." Mr Peters said the shortage meant people were finding the service in places like restaurants, hairdressing salons and workshops slower. "If you have an accident driving home tonight in your car, typically your car will sit on the panel beaters shop floor for two weeks until they can get to it. That's now. In three years time that [timeframe] will double."
In today’s competitive life, employers are more inclined to find people who can contribute to the growth of the company and not just boost its productivity. Hence, most employers tend to look for people who are endowed with the most desirable job skills in order to match the expectations and necessities of the company. Therefore, for people who wish to make it to the jobs that they have long been dreaming of, it is important to know the most sought after job skills of most employers. Here’s a list of the important job skills a job seeker must have in order to land a good job and keep it. 1. The ability to research Job seekers should possess the ability to research not because they wanted to land a job in a research company but in order to do simple searches on the data needed by a particular activity. 2. Logical thinking Most employers need people who are able to produce effective solutions and to make sensible solutions regarding a proposal or a probable activity. 3. Technologically literate With the advent of information technology, most job openings require people who are computer literate or know how to operate different machines and office equipments. Most employers do not necessarily need people who are technological graduates. The simple fact that job seekers know the basic principles of technology is already enough. 4munication skills People who are able to land a good job are mostly those who are adept in speaking and writing. Employers hire people who are able to express their thoughts efficiently through verbal and written communications. 5. Organizational skills No employer would like to hire somebody who is disorganized. Organization is extremely important to maintain a harmonious working relationship in the company. Hence, most employers find people who know how to arrange scheme and methods that would maintain the orderliness in the area. 6. Interpersonal skills Because the working environment consists of various kinds of personalities, it is necessary, therefore, to acquire the skill to communicate to people form different walks of life. 7. Professional Growth Employers hire people who are able to create a plan that will generate personal career growth. This means that the person is willing to improve him or herself professionally by learning new things he or she still does not know. These are just some of the most wanted job skills by most employers. Hence, it is important for the job seekers to take note of these assets in order to be successful in every endeavor they make.
A warm contact list is a list of people that you contact when you are looking for a job. These people are willing to help you in your search by offering information about current job openings, business opportunities, or just to give you tips on looking for a job. So who belongs on your warm contact list? Here are some people who might be willing to help. Family and friends should always be first on your list of warm contacts. They are always willing to help or to give advice. They may be able to give you information on job openings, or refer you to trustworthy people who might be able to help you. They can introduce you to people who could help with your search, and provide honest information about the people you are associating with. Former employers or co workers are also a must on your warm contact list. It is important to keep a good relationship with former employers because a potential employer will most likely call past employers to see what kind of a worker you were and why you no longer have that job anymore. Past employers can also give you information on that field and that could help in your job search. When you ask family and friends about information it can very well be second hand or rumors. But when you ask someone who is in the same field as you are looking to go into, such as a past employer, they will be able to give you first hand information or clear up any questions you might have. People who share the same beliefs and hobbies as you are often willing to help you with your job search. Members of the church, political party, fraternity, or sorority usually will help you with your job search. They may give you information or they could also think twice about giving it to you. Their opinion of the people they can connect you with could help you build a strategy on how to approach them and ask them for their help. Another type of person you might want to have on your warm contacts list is people who sell you things.

Some things are simply a mystery and so goes the perceived role and importance that the Critical Care Transport (CCT) RN plays in the healthcare field. Other professionals seem to view us like mutts - a little bit of everything but certainly not a thoroughbred in anything. I once heard a co-worker describe the job as something between a magnified EMT and a bench warmer. Such flattery - but what can you do? Anyhow, I just wanted to set the record straight, so to speak, by pointing out the value and importance that the CCT RN brings to the table. What's so ironic about the perception is that most CCT RN's are veteran nurses from the ICU or ER with certifications that give new meaning to the use of acronyms. Many hold certifications that consist of ACLS, PALS, CCRN, CEN, TNCC, PHTLS, ATLS and anyway - you get the picture. Not to mention while other nurses were out frolicking in the sun on their day off; oftentimes, we sat in some hot, claustrophobic classroom in pursuit of greater knowledge. In addition, extensive training takes place before we are even allowed to come into contact with a patient, with classes ranging from airway management, advanced life support, managing portable ventilators, pharmacology, and trauma protocols. As in all fields of nursing, the amount of information thrown your way is vast and at times can be a bit over-whelming. Of course, you must learn it all and then be able to repeat it verbatim, back to the instructor. Of course, the rear confines of the ambulance is simply a mini ER. Believe me, there's no such thing as a claustrophobic CCT RN. Standard equipment includes: IV pumps, pulse oximetry, monitor, airway equipment and a pharmacy of drugs. Pretty much all life saving procedures are provided here - CCT RN's are trained to be prepared for anything. Truth be told, to make it out there in the real world a CCT RN has to be intelligent, witty and quick on their feet. Murphy's Law at hyper-drive is the norm and thus a solid foundation in the fundamentals of critical care along with extensive training prepares the CCT RN for anything and everything. On the down side, regardless of training and experience, you can never be totally prepared but the key, irrespective of the circumstances is to always keep continuity of care from the sending to the receiving hospital. In most instances, patient care and outcome improves primarily due to this 1-to-1 ratio. It's an exciting and a personally rewarding profession that defines care one patient at a time. On the other hand; at times, it can be a thankless job but like our contemporary professionals we are all on the same team with the same goal - to care for the patient and get them to the next stage of recovery as quickly as possible. Remember, we are not mutts, so the next time a CCT RN crosses your path throw us a bone in the form of respect - not a dog biscuit. This article may be reproduced only in its entirety.
Do you dream of getting rich or do you want to be rich? There is nothing wrong in dreaming of getting rich; except that you will get the dream, not the real thing. There are three steps to wealth. I am reaching only the first one (so far), and I will speak only about what I know. The first step to getting rich? A family income of $50.000. It may be more or less, depending on your location. Why is it the first step? Because from that point you will be able to invest money, that is to say: to make money work for you. Until then, you have to work for money. Work? Yes! Do not tell yourself anything you would not tell your kids. You know that people who get a degree, or higher diplomas, earn more than people who have never attended college, and more than people who went to college but failed to graduate. There is a lot at stake for you to stay at an elementary level and keep saying: "I know X who was a failure at school and nevertheless he has made it!" The lazy path provides 99.99% of its lovers with debts and broken dreams. The few who actually succeed struggle for 30 years. It would have taken less time and efforts to follow any course! Choose carefully the domain of knowledge you want to master. It has to meet 3 requirements: -- You like it. If you cannot stand the idea of meeting the critically ill all day long, drop studying medicine, even if a cancer specialist earns a lot. You do not want to be rich to afford antidepressants. -- It is of high demand in growing companies: for you to grow as high and quick as the company. -- Either it is difficult to master or it can be blended with other specialized scope of activities: the narrower the niche, the higher the income. Avoid the mistake I have made for years: do not work for almost nothing for the only reason that you like what you do. I liked to teach, was a good teacher and knew nothing about the other two requirements. I still like to teach, and I still am a good teacher. The very difference is that now I teach adults who are craving to learn French because they do have a project: to reach the first step of wealth. In their case, they need to master French and to blend it in their specialized scope of activity. And you? What are you going to choose? Mining and Chinese? Refining and Arabic? Art History and Italian? The first choice is rather simple: to dream of getting rich or to want to be rich.

Unprecedented economic growth in Western Australia means that up to 17,800 extra skilled workers will be desperately needed every year for the next ten years, according to a report launched today by education and training minister Mark McGowan. Some of these skilled workers must come from Australia immigration. The Beyond the Resources Boom study was commissioned by the State Training Board (STB), and examines Western Australia's economic growth and the challenges faced by the state's workforce. Skill shortages are set to remain a feature of the labour market, the report concludes, due to the strength of the economy and the ageing workforce. STB chairman Keith Spence said the demand would be met through a combination of general population growth, skilled immigration from interstate and overseas, and the development of local training initiatives. Among the top performing occupations, in terms of projected annual average employment growth between 2006 and 2016, are intermediate mining and construction workers, plumbers, structural construction tradespersons, and mining, construction and related labourers. Demand for jobs in the mining and construction sectors is very high and a downturn is considered unlikely. Many of these occupations are on the Australia Skilled Occupation List and the Australia MODL (Migration Occupations in Demand List), which entitles people applying for Australian immigration to extra points. Economic projections modelled by the report indicate there is unlikely to be a boom-bust scenario in the short to medium term. This reflects the resource-driven construction boom, which is underpinned by strong growth in demand from China and record commodity prices, particularly for the state's main export, iron ore. Skilled occupations currently make up nearly 60 per cent of the workforce and the report forecasts that overall demand for higher skills in Western Australia is likely to remain constant as a proportion of the economy. Other skilled occupations in demand include managers, administrators, professionals, associate professionals, tradespersons and related clerical, sales, transport and production workers.
