You may be fresh out of school and are about to go searching for your first job. Or you might already have some work experience, and are simply looking to work elsewhere.
Finding a job can often seem like a long, daunting journey, but the positives of a working life easily outweigh the effort. Employment, whether full-time or part-time, gives us an opportunity to lead an active life and form new social connections.
