      I have to admit, having worked in supermarkets as a student, it does appeal to me as a retirement option, but since there will be thousands looking for the same job in adelaide, I wonder how most will fare......... It's concerning.
      That's not just SA - that's the modernised global world, and you won't find a better example of clowns trying to justify their existences than in London. Automation, computerisation and the explosion of technology are meaning less and less real jobs day by day. You just have to look the world over for the amount of non-jobs, in my line of work, IT, there are more "facilitator" type roles than they are dudes actually producing any meaningful results. With IT now a service industry my job role is looking like it'll eventually evolve into "vendor management" - oh yes, another non-job and I'll be finding ways to justify my existence for sure. And I'll bet money that most other industries are going the same way. There are strong predictions that the whole concept of a job will eventually be a thing of the past so maybe collecting certificates will be a nice pastime as our daily food is delivered by driver less vans.

      Oh and Adelaide starts with a capital A.

      There are a few admin vacancies on the professional staff vacancies list at Flinders uni at the moment. If you apply for those, take the time to write a short, concise response to each of the criteria and give an example for each. Good criteria responses when you go for specific vacancies can really make your application stand out.
