Professions that work with people will be much more valued in the future than they are today

9 October 2019

Paylab examined teachers’ salaries in detail and compared them to other selected jobs that involve working with people on a day-to-day basis, such as doctors, shop assistants and customer support staff. According to Paylab’s findings, the salaries paid to teachers in many countries, despite their education, don’t give them much reason to celebrate. Their standing is often comparable to the salaries of employees who have completed secondary level education. The trend, however, indicates that professions focused on working with people will be extraordinarily appreciated and desirable in the future. Manual labour and data may be automated, but working with people, which generates value, will be among the “professions of the future” and their price will continue to grow.

Is Your Employment Salary Dictating Your Credit Options?

30 April 2019

Here’s how your pay could be affecting your borrowing ability and terms. While there is an abundance of credit options available on the market today, the ones that you can actually access will depend on a number of factors specific to an applicant. Most people automatically go to their credit scores and history when considering whether they will be deemed suitable for various credit or lending products. While it is certainly an influencing factor, your approval (or even consideration) for loans, consumer credit or even alternative lending is impacted by much more than past payment records.
