The Job Search

15 Oct

The job search continues.

As I address selection criteria, polish my CV and my best black shoes, and trying to remember to take my best handbag to interviews, I came across this new study from the ANU by Dr Liana Leach and her team, Bad jobs will make you miserable. Please do not dismiss this as Yet Another Case of the Bleedin’ Obvious. What Dr Leach found is that it’s not enough that you have a job. She found that “people who moved from unemployment into poor quality jobs were much more likely to be depressed than those who were still unemployed”. The quality of the job you have makes a profound difference to your wellbeing.

I can’t direct you to a copy of the paper yet but if you follow the link above, the media office should be able to give you a copy.

To all who are job hunting, I wish you all the best.
