Change In Career: 20 Non-Hospital Jobs For Nurses To Consider

By Anna H. Nilsson As a child, I had always thought that nurses working in hospitals have the coolest uniforms in the world. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wear pleated skirts and a cap, right? Sadly, doctors came in second because they only wore robes. But growing up, I realized that the nursing attire is a hard-earned piece of clothing; you’ll never get it unless you’re determined to have it. Before becoming a full-fledged nurse, you...

Extending Your Degree Isn’t a Terrible Thing

By Isaac Garcia Oh Goodness, what have you done? You’ve tangled yourself in a web of UTS subject availabilities, inflexible work commitments and you even maybe, possibly failed that one subject you ‘accidentally’ missed all of your lectures for. Suddenly you find yourself in that dreaded position: extending your degree. You quickly say goodbye to the dream of taking group grad-gown selfies with your handful of uni friends, and find...

Career Anxiety in Pursuit of ‘Dream Job’: Sydney Millennials Losing Out

By Mia Casey Growing up, we were always told that ‘we could be anything’. Unfortunately, as we got older this adage slowly began to translate to ‘we should be everything’, creating a pressure to not only know what we want to do, but also be versatile enough to fit into whatever industry we decided our ‘dream job’ was in. And while the intended meaning behind these ideas are all positive, something’s making me think that...

It’s Ok to Not Love Your Job

By Ryan Abednego ‘Choose a Job You Love and You Will Never Have To Work a Day in Your Life’ At some point in your life, you will have run into this quote (figuratively, not literally). It’s a charming sentiment and looks nice over a waterfall scene as a desktop background, but let’s be real for a moment: people who love their jobs are a rare breed. And the ones that do love what they do? You can be sure they worked hard to get there....

You May Not Have One True Calling, and That’s Okay

By Mia Casey Let’s face it guys, the world isn’t what it used to be. We’re hopping jobs and changing careers left, right and centre (on average, up to 4 times within your first decade out of uni), and for each role we’re in it’s likely we’ll be expected to have skills that span at least two other industries. What’s a millennial to do? And with this shift to changing jobs, it’s unsurprising that more and more people are finding...

Think You’ll Do An Internship? READ THIS.

By Adrian Buck An internship is about experience – your experience.  Here are 5 steps to take control and own it. Step 1 – Research Start early.  Very early.  The day you arrive on campus is the day you announce to the world: “I want to be somebody”.  But who do you want to be?  You probably don’t even know yet (no-one does), and that’s what an internship is all about.  It’s also about learning and skills and stuff, but it’s a...

Leading Law One Competition at a Time: Top100 2018 Law Category Winner Talks Growth

By Jessica White I entered the Top100 Future Leaders competition in August last year after receiving an email invite by UTS. At that time, I didn’t appreciate just how far I would go in the competition, nor how much I would learn. The competition process exposes applicants to a standard graduate recruitment process. This was by having me submit a written application, complete Revelian testing, answer questions in a video interview,...
