Today's news: The average number of workers being employed every six months has had its strongest run in seven years, new figures show, as the unemployment rate drops to 5.6 per cent on the back of ten straight months of gains in full-time employment. "Full-time employment has now increased by around 220,000 persons since September 2016, and makes up the majority of the 250,000 person increase in employment over the period," said Australian Bureau of Statistics chief economist, Bruce Hockman. The participation rate, which refers to the number of people either employed or actively looking for work, was up by 0.1 percentage points at 65.1 per cent. http://www.theage.com.au/business/the-economy/unemployment-falls-to-56-per-cent-in-july-20170817-gxy5gk.html

Interesting article: ""Under the federal Sex Discrimination Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee on the basis of their sex, pregnancy, potential pregnancy, family responsibilities and breastfeeding. This includes, for example, refusing to employ a woman because she is – or may become – pregnant, unless there are genuine health and safety concerns." "Section 27 of the Sex Discrimination Act specifically states that it is unlawful to ask a woman during a job interview whether she is pregnant or intends to become pregnant if that information is requested in connection with determining whether to offer her employment." http://www.theage.com.au/business/the-question-it-is-illegal-to-ask-women-20170804-gxpp19.html
Brush up your applications, Amazon is moving in! On Thursday, Amazon confirmed it was opening its first Australian fulfilment centre - a 24,000 square metre facility in Dandenong South, Victoria - to support its retail push into the country. The move would create "hundreds of new jobs", it said, adding to the almost 1000 employees already in Australia as of April. Amazon will begin recruiting immediately for a range of roles, including operations managers, pickers, packers, systems technicians, and HR specialists. Fulfilment centre jobs are hard work - they're physically taxing, but they pay well. "We are thrilled to be creating hundreds of new roles in Dandenong South," Amazon's director of operations for Australia, Robert Bruce, said. http://www.theage.com.au/business/retail/amazon-to-create-hundreds-of-jobs-in-australia-with-opening-of-fulfilment-centre-20170803-gxoakx.html
Love getting happy client emails! Here's another one that just arrived! "The cover letter and resume absolutely rock. They're fantastic. If you're after a good news story—I sent these to an open position last week. After 8 months of applying for positions and seeing one interview, I was getting pretty discouraged. The cover letter and resume you've done landed an interview on the very first submission. Nice! Thanks, Tim
