WN2 — What’s New White Now ?

Financial Recruitment
Have you ever been ‘baffled by the bull-dust’ ???

WE HAVE !!!


The Financial roles within any business (CFO’s/Accountants/Bookkeepers/etc) are some of the most important and most difficult to recruit for !

For a while now, we at White Now have realised that we do not currently possess the skill set to recruit in this specialised area. Accordingly we have been searching far and wide for a company that shares our values and customer service beliefs and that specialises in the Financial arena !

White Now is pleased to announce the official launch of this new service on our website and through our new business associate, we are confident we can provide the Club and Hospitality Industry with an unparalleled recruitment service specialising in the recruitment of bookkeepers right through to Chief Financial Controllers !!!

Resume Surgery
“We’re Back in Surgery !”


Back by popular demand you may have noticed that we have re-instated the Resume Surgery service.

The importance of a resume is to get you to the interview !!! It needs to stick out, as only a handful of candidates ever get to interview stage. It is your first impression on the person reading it so… make it professional and make it STAND OUT above the rest !!!

Wiz’s Wisdom — Living & Working in Asia

We are constantly fielding phone calls from experienced hospitality managers and supervisors with questions about the opportunities that lie overseas, particularly in Asia in places such as Macau, Phillipines, China and the like.

With the massive growth of gaming in these sorts of areas and the phenomenal success to date of Macau in particular, we felt it would be useful to include some information and links to overseas websites to assist you with your questions. As always, we welcome your phone calls and if we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us White Now on 02 9807 1806.

Living overseas as an expatriate (‘Expat’) can be one of the most amazing and life changing experiences ! And Asia offers a very affordable; fast-paced; uniquely cultural and eye-opening opportunity for Aussies to enjoy and prosper from.

It may sound ‘silly’ to say, but you need to come to terms with the fact that wherever you are ‘posted/set-up’, it will NOT be Australia !!! As Australians, we are afforded one of the greatest lifestyles in the Western world and it is unique in so many ways – it would be naïve to believe that living overseas will be just like living at home and if it was, what fun would it be ???

Prior to considering a move overseas for work, you need to consider very carefully what it is that you are looking to achieve and whether or not this is for you (and in a number of cases, your FAMILY). Most Asian countries offer excellent international schooling for ‘Expat’ kids and the opportunities for travel and WORLDLY-KNOWLEDGE form part of a well rounded education and an experience of a lifetime that most kids will never forget !

Once you have decided that you do want to move overseas, you really need to do a bit of sole-searching, which requires you to be totally honest with yourself by asking yourself: “Putting the money, experience and opportunity aside; can I really live away from my friends, family and lifestyle/culture ?” If you can HONESTLY answer ‘Yes’, the next part is to decide WHERE you want to base yourself.

Basing yourself overseas comes down to personal preference and to make an informed decision you really need to do some research. One of the best ways to find out about living overseas is to speak to people who are already over there or have just returned. The wonderful thing about the internet is that you do not even need to KNOW these people, although it always helps if you do have someone that you can speak with, whose opinion you respect. With the internet, there are a number of ‘Expat’ chat forums where you can chat to people in the know !

Listed below are a couple of useful sites that contain a wealth of information about being an ‘Expat’ in Asia and some of them have forums where you can register and ask more about living and working in a specific country:

www.asiaxpat.com

www.asia-expatsforum.com

www.macau.com

www.wikitravel.org/en/Macau

www.wikitravel.org/en/Manila

The World Gaming Market continues to grow, particularly in Asia ! And as Australians, we are so very fortunate that Asia is on our ‘doorstep’.


"From the ages of 3 to 16, I grew up in Hong Kong. We lived an amazing lifestyle, adopted my sister, who is now practicing law in the UK (she got the looks AND the brains…………..just a pity we had to ‘buy’ them in) and I experienced a whole new culture and world that I would never have had the opportunity to see if my parents had not taken a step out of their comfort zone ! It is an experience I am eternally grateful for and would recommend to anyone and everyone that is willing to try something different and open their eyes to the wonders that Asia (and the rest of the World) has to offer."

A: It came from WW II fighter pilots in the South Pacific.
