Full time and part time jobs are the most popular types of jobs because they’re the original working format, where you exchange your time (hours) for money.
Job boards like Seek are the preferred place to look for a job because most employers use this job board but for part-time and casual work more people are turning towards classifieds directories and project bidding sites like Airtasker, Gumtree, Fiverr.
These website are part of the gig economy revolution which spawned sites like Uber and AirBNB that focus on the needs of matching employers and contractors for specific jobs and often for a short or limited time.
UpWork (formerly Odesk) and Freelancer are just some of the sites where contractors or those looking to earn money in a “side-hussle” use these platforms to supplement their incomes.
With so many integrations, Xero has become a leading software for small business accounting. From ecommerce add-ons to payroll and workforce management software, there is a Xero integration for most aspects of business management and administration. It’s little wonder that Xero Courses are becoming so popular.
And credit management is no exception. Chaser HQ is a credit management app that promotes its ability to automate the whole process: from credit checks to chasing up invoices. It’s a UK-based company, but its integration with Xero could see it being used more and more by accounting staff globally, including Australia.
Getting qualifications and experience are the foundational steps in looking for jobs, but then what? It can be a daunting task to join or re-enter the workforce, even with a Certificate in Xero Accounting in hand.
Digital Business Skills are important for everyone who works for a company or who owns one. Authentication for Xero Course students highlighted to me the importance of general digital business skills. Our Digital Business Course has been available for a while as a FREE student inclusion but we’ve recently added to it.
If you have worked in an office you know how frustrating IT issues are. If you are now working from home you know how frustrating IT support issues are. If you have ever experienced an IT support issue installing software (like MYOB AccountRight) you know how frustrating IT issues are.
Did you know that Afterpay (and ZipPay) and some other Buy Now Pay Later providers decline sellers? Most Afterpay transactions are centered around the selling of physical products that change ownership from the merchant to the customer. This evidence is enough to bind customers legally, but what happens if you provide professional services like bookkeeping or accounting?
Accountants and Bookkeepers, like many other professional service providers including Lawyers and solicitors charge for their time or defined outcomes (like fixed fees for a certain number of transactions).
Will Afterpay take you on as a client? We’ve heard that many industries are rejected but there are alternatives and Xero’s App Store can help.
When you look at the two companies Xero Accounting and GoDaddy hosting companies are very similar. They both provide cloud-based solutions, for a subscription fee and have small businesses as their major clients. They are both in a very good position to provide accounting software for their customers.
One of the Xero Directors sold an accounting software program to GoDaddy in 2012 and at the time TechCrunch reported that Accounting software is a logical service for them to provide to their small business clients. What does it mean for the future though?
It’s interesting and exciting that Xero now offer their Xero Learn service to training course publishers like EzyLearn for $6 per month. This ongoing access to Xero Accounting software seemed exciting at first but then I realised that it’s just accounting software! AND it’s just for training! AND 30 days is MORE than enough per case study!
Most students don’t want to access Xero accounting software forever. Even business owners don’t really want to pay an ongoing fee for their accounting software – they want something else..
Are you only using 10% of Microsoft Office? Are you taking 2 hours to do something that can actually be done in 30 minutes? Microsoft Office software had a feature that could identify your productivity score in reports to managers.
The technology was designed as a sales tool for Microsoft to help identify software that could be utilised better at Microsoft corporate clients but it unveiled a whole privacy issue.
Are you currently seeking work? Are you studying and planning your career but not actively looking?
Looking for a job is similar to selling a house – it’s a big deal, it affects you financially and you don’t do it that often. It’s certainly different to running a business where you are always looking for clients!
There are many more ways of finding work online these days and it is changing how people find work.
OUR HARDCOPY COURSE workbooks are the written foundation of all our online training courses. Sometimes these workbooks start as little more than a list of transactions. We then create the training course outline and film the breakdown of this in a series of brief, easy to absorb videos.
Xero Certification is designed for contract bookkeepers to increase the number of customers who use and support the software.
Like all “partner” programs offered by software vendors including MYOB and Intuit QuickBooks the purpose of these programs is to increase their “channel to market” but it may not always suit every student.
Two of Australia’s newest billionaires Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar have become wealthy because they created software that enables companies like MYOB manage a team of developers, designers and analysts in the pursuit of continuously adding enhancements, updating the software, fixing bugs and providing support for their MYOB Tax software via their company Atlassian, but I digress.
The reason for this post is because of obscure behaviour by MYOB regarding their essentials software and a recent upgrade they performed on the MYOB Essentials software.
