In the age of technology and digital communication, you might have heard of the term “office job” or “office life”.
The idea is that, with a smartphone and a few clicks of the mouse, you can move about in a variety of different office settings.
But are office life perks really worth the expense?
A recent survey by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that the cost of living in the major cities is far higher than you might expect.
The survey also found that more than one in three Australians say they are unable to find a job due to their age.
The Bureau of Australian Statistics report shows that in 2013, the median age of Australians was 33 years old, with women between 35 and 44 years old being more likely to be unemployed.
According to the report, women are the most likely age group to be jobless, with over half of women aged under 35 saying they are jobless.
The report also found the unemployment rate among people aged 25-54 was 27.1 per cent, which is one of the highest in the country.
The report also showed that unemployment for people aged 55 and over was 26.5 per cent.
The ABS said the unemployment rates for all age groups were comparable with other developed countries.
“The ABS has found that the age distribution of unemployment is very similar across Australia and that the overall unemployment rate across all age cohorts is at about the same level,” the report stated.
However, the report also highlighted that the ABS found that many people who were unemployed in 2013 did not move to a different location.
Instead, they were either transferred to a lower-paid position or relocated to a new location.
For example, people aged under 25 years old moved to Melbourne, while people aged over 65 years old were transferred to Adelaide.
Some people who moved to a city may be in the same position but they have moved to an office, and now they need to find work.
Others may have moved into a different part of the city but still want to be employed.
So, what can you do if you don’t live in a major city?
If you don and are still in a position to move, the ABS says you can get advice and support from a career counsellor, or you can ask for help finding work.
If you do live in another major city, you may find a career manager who can help you find work locally.
If you are still not finding work in your current position, you could consider getting a temporary or long-term job.
You can also consider taking on a role at work, such as a shift supervisor or employee support worker.
You could also consider a self-employment plan to supplement your wages, or consider taking part in a voluntary self-employed or self-supporting business.
If all of the above options don’t work, you should consider seeking help from your local community employment agency.
The ABC understands the National Job Guarantee is set to be rolled out across all major cities in March.
