Compared with other first world countries, Australia’s internet is not considered to be great. Between infrastructure problems, personal privacy concerns and security issues, there’s a long way to go when it comes to all things online Down Under. That doesn’t mean changes in how we do things aren’t relevant, however, or it isn’t necessary to…

If you’re hiring for anything more than the lowliest of entry level positions in your company, chances are the process will involve many calls, emails, meetings and interviews.
