Deciding on a career path: Advice to HSC students

“When I was in high school, I was obsessing over a completely different career. I had always dreamed of studying speech pathology… But I don’t think I completely understood what it would be like until I tried a semester of it.” For 20-year-old Hayah Shadid, deciding on a career to pursue after finishing high school was never an easy task. Ms Shadid’s switch from studying a Bachelor of Primary Education to a Bachelor of Applied Science in Speech Pathology and back to Primary Education is not an uncommon practice because the “what will I do after school” question is...

Political Iftars: a love-hate relationship for Australian Muslims

Last week Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hosted the country’s first Iftar at Kirribilli House; a luxurious scene for what appeared to be a pleasant evening for all who attended (or at least, appeared to be pleasant from their Tweets). There are hundreds, probably thousands of Iftars held each year to bring not only 500 000 Australian Muslims together, but also to share the holy month of Ramadan with non-Muslim communities.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, you are more than likely to have experienced working in this industry if you were employed in high school or commenced work...

    You’re strolling around your local shopping centre when your stomach tells you it’s time to eat. Unsure of what you’re craving, you make your way to the centre’s food court where there is a range of international menus to choose from.   The scents are inviting and the prices tempting. Your food court walk begins, searching for that A4 piece of paper that usually hangs on the wall behind the register. Starting at the sushi bar, you stroll past the salad stand, skip past the McDonald’s queue and land at the Kebab shop which doesn’t have an...

Women in sport: Seeking a fair go

Keep turning…keep turning…keep turning…one more page, just a couple more… and you will have finally reached the obituaries of the daily newspaper. Here you’ll find your one stop shop on the latest deaths, but also the achievements of fine female athletes. It’s all there, if you look close and hard enough; it’s as obvious as fineprint and is as lively as the obituary itself. I, like many others, thought we would have overcome the gender hurdle by 2016, but female athletes are about as equal to their male counterparts, as home brand chocolate is to Lindt.
