近年經濟市場經歷了不少變動,除了疫後新常態,移民潮和兩岸業務急速發展,都令不少行業起了變化,作為眾行業之首的銀行也不例外。究竟現時銀行界的就業情況是怎樣呢?甚麼職位最缺人?為何有銀行推出3萬轉介獎金去招人才!想加入銀行業就要留意以下的最新行情! 移民潮或令銀行主管現逾萬空缺 數碼轉型帶動科技渴才  銀行業為何廣招兵馬?除了文章開首提及的移民潮及兩岸業務發展,最明顯的助力可算是數碼轉型及網上服務的推進。以下3大原因是為關鍵: 1. 銀行數碼轉型 在2018年政府正式核准虛擬銀行的牌照,成了銀行數碼轉型的一大里程碑。而有趣的是其實MOX BANK 的股東是渣打銀行,LIVI BANK的股東是中銀香港,兩間大行踩過界發展數碼業務,希望可以在市場上分一杯羹,證明了數碼轉型對銀行的影響力。恆生銀行也在去年將整體分行數目減掉一成,希望將資源集中在網上服務。銀行營運模式的轉變,除了需要IT人才去為營運作出調整,亦需要一班有商業頭腦的人才去開發新業務,思考要怎樣轉型、增設哪些服務和產品。 2....
單車愛好者當上單車店主,既是興趣,人工又有3萬幾,是「真comfort zone」了吧?Viola(阿飯)卻沒停步,頭也不回地跳出去,改當攀樹師,放下10年的單車資歷重頭來過。看似任性?「在樹這行業我希望投入至少10年。」原來她早就想得很清楚,清楚得途上遇到的困難都不是困難、生活幾乎只剩下樹也仍很自在,想法透徹得像風穿過樹枝,「心態很重要。」 「向不向前行是看你肯不肯放下」 也因心態,她才沒錯過攀樹——攀樹其實涉及兩個前度,一個帶她攀樹,一個經她鼓勵入了行,卻在行內出軌。而她卻沒就此蒙上陰影,「你不放下就沒得向前行,行不行是看你決定而已。」她選擇將重點放回自身:「攀樹其實是我想做的。」第一次上樹時被樹包圍的感覺,她仍很記得。加上當時單車店工作也走到瓶頸,「要轉行都想過一輪,但人生要試新的事,而且就算要回頭都可以。」 但那不代表她就會輕易回頭,反而,她決定投放另一個10年,「我覺得那才能摸清一個行業的運作,將一件事做到很熟練。」即使面對體能要求、記錯可能會死的繩結,她都走下去,成功考了攀樹牌和鏈鋸牌,再經朋友轉介入行,由「地雞」做起,將大木切細、搬運、留意行人,再到攀樹,幸好那時她的樹隊專做政府轄下的樹木日常維護,不用追量,技術和體能都能慢慢鍛煉。 每投入一個行業她希望用10年,因此事前會做足功課,「這很重要,起碼了解實際做什麼,有什麼職位,最好找到前輩問。」而且這一行門檻雖低,但技術可以很多很深,需要進修的東西也多。 ▪ 轉行有黃金期?做兩手準備助轉型成功,特定工作30歲後有優勢! ▪ 時隔多年未見過工?中高層轉工6大提示...
雖然地盤佬係粗人,不過好多地盤佬都係其實識飲識食嘅。 平時食午飯 雖然有好多地盤都係好山旮旯,好多師傅都迫於無奈要食最難食嘅Van仔飯。不過如果附近有得揀,啲師傅都會揀一啲抵食夾大件嘅茶餐廳或者大排檔。近年連登上面嘅熱門經常出現嘅話題,講地盤佬鍾意食蒸魚飯,呢樣嘢我覺得係真嘅。根據我喺地盤附近成日食飯嘅非正式統計,地盤佬食蒸魚飯嘅比率真係最高,有蒸魚飯嘅茶餐廳,只要附近有地盤,通常啲蒸魚飯都會比地盤佬掃晒;另外仲有樣飯係地盤佬界都係好受歡迎㗎,就係湯飯。聽啲師傅講,做地盤都係為咗養妻活兒,冇得食軟飯(純粹講笑),喺外面日曬雨林做到咁辛苦,湯飯軟啲、易啲入口,又可以食得快可以快啲返去搵俾地方眠一眠(午睡)。 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—停工 ▪ 地盤佬日誌—風水輪流轉 有老細請食飯 好多判頭老細都鍾意請人食飯,多數係想同上家打好關係請食飯,有時係慰勞啲做得野嘅兄弟。傳說中多所罐頭老細都有一兩間相熟嘅酒樓或者大排檔,多數都會叫幾碟海鮮(通常海鮮都OK貴)加幾碟小炒,不過真正嘅主菜通常都係飲酒。多數啲酒樓老細會傾好咗比佢哋自己帶酒同存酒,有啲仲會比佢哋簽單儲埋月結。不過就算啲嘢幾好食都冇用,因為嘢食都係為咗送酒,多數食完都有人會嘔返晒出嚟。 ▪...
