#Internships receive a mixed review; while many say it leads to permanent roles and a wealth of experiences, others would beg to differ. But are you getting the most out of your #internship? To ensure you are more than just the office lackey, here are some questions that might merit consideration before saying yes:
What #WellPaidJobs of the #future will our children aspire to? We all care that our children achieve the best at school, have a happy childhood, find themselves through their teens and twenties, and at some stage ‘figure out’ what they want to do work-wise. The world they are living is incredibly different to the world the rest of us grew up in, and so with this in mind there are millions of new jobs available to them.
Today’s interviewee certainly revealed that #perseverance is key for #graduates. I spoke to the vibrant and laughter-inducing graduate Bethany Clarke, as she talked me through her recent job search and new role. Bethany reveals that although things might not necessarily be easy, a determined streak is key when starting your career in post-uni life.

I have come to the conclusion that changing your #lifestyle is essential for your #worklife. I am a little under the weather. And unfortunately by that, I do not mean under the sun on a sun bed. No reader, I mean that I am taken ill. I’ve got a cough that clears a sea of people like they’re water and I’m Moses, and my brain is not quite fitting neatly in my skull. It is definitely being squished. My self-esteem has plummeted along with my failing health, and is morosely traipsing around after me. If I think of anything I need to get done it hides behind a bookcase. Which has got me thinking (dangerous I know with all this squished brain business) how closely are self-esteem and physical health related? I mean for confidence in your own capabilities, not just in how you look.

Today I spoke to someone who helps people #overcomepain as part of their #dayjob. A job as a massage therapist could be something for those candidates who are interested in the body, or medicine, but are not inclined to study for years and years to be a doctor or nurse. Massage therapists have rewarding jobs and with each new patient or client there is a new challenge.
So you have a @LinkedIn page, the bare bones ‘this is is my employment history’ version of your #CV. Now what? Chances are your page could do with a quick spruce up, or you could do with a refresher of some of LinkedIn’s features. See below for four top tips on how to make the most of @LinkedIn.

Some of the #BestPaidJobs are not just desk jobs in #2014. #Antisocial hours and risky work are on the agenda, with many people from the UK leaving for several months of the year to work abroad in these perilous conditions. But does the salary make it worth your while? Read the 4 jobs below and decide whether it’s worth the risk.
Today we took a look in the mirror and spoke to someone who works in a similar way to us in #Recruitment. We thought it would be a good way to think outside the ‘#Recruitment Box’, and to demonstrate that that is what we do every day that we come into work. Michael Herz is a specialist headhunter, working to match up specific individuals within the recruitment market. We love that Michael is motivated by success and money and this is what we hope our clients are too, along with job satisfaction, working benefits and long term goals- all things we consider when recruiting.
Do you ever wish there were more #workperks to the day job? You’re certainly not alone there. Today we looked into the best company perks around and complied a list. We’re debating whether or not to hand it in to someone as an anonymous suggestion…but maybe it’s best if we just keep them to ourselves and lust after them in private!
