revamp to online job hunting

Fairfax's online employment classified services have undergone some radical changes in the last few months, culminating in the launch of the My Career site (http://www.mycareer.com.au).

The new site replaces the fairfax@market employment section of the site and follows the launch of its new online motoring site, drive.com.au.

Mycareer.com.au brings together the company's online services, specifically its IT Jobs and general employment sites. Included on the site is a wealth of information ranging from advice as to when to give notice, to work-related issues such as the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees in regard to maternity leave.

Jobs are no longer sourced solely from the company's print-based publications, with 20 recruitment agencies contracted to the site to extend its national offering. Employers can also post jobs directly to the site.

Job seekers can choose to be a member of the site, which allows you to save a profile, apply for jobs online and save a personal review folder. The JobAlert feature has been enhanced with the addition of a free e-mail account service. This allows job seekers to avoid sensitive employment alerts being sent to the workplace.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
