He aha ōku mōtika?

Hei kaimahi i Aotearoa, he mōtika "iti rawa" ōu e kore e taea te tango mai i a koe i te mahi. Ko te pūtake o ēnei he tiaki i a koe kei whakahāwinitia koe i te mahi.

Anei ētahi mōtika nui e āhei ana koe:

  • he kirimana mahi ā-tuhi
  • kia kaua e iti ake i te utu mahi iti rawa
  • kia utua ngā whakamatuatanga ā-tau, hararei tūmatanui hoki
  • etahi atu whakamatuatanga, pērā i te whakamatuatanga māuiui
  • ngā whakatā me ngā wā kai.

Kei reira anō ētahi atu mōtika maha mō te nonotitanga, ā, he takahi ture te nonoti i a koe mō ngā mea katoa mai i tō mātāwaka me te ira tangata ki tō taipakeke.


Heoi anō, he rerekē ō mōtika mēnā he kaikirimana, kaitūao, kaimahi rānei koe. He mea nui kia mārama koe ki te momo mahi kei te mahi koe me ngā mōtika e āhei ana koe.

Hauora me te haumaru

E pai ai ki a koe tō mahi, he mea nui kia hauora, kia haumaru koe.

Ina, he herenga ō tō kaituku mahi mō tō hauora me tō haumaru. Kei roto i tēnei ko te whakarite:

  • Kei te tika te whakangungu i a koe ki te whakamahi i ngā utauta motuhake.

  • Ka whiwhi i ngā whakangungu haere tonu hei whakahaere i ngā mōrea me ngā pūmate.
  • Ka taea e koe te whakaara i ngā māharahara hauora me te haumaru me tō kaituku mahi.

Kei te whai mōtika anō koe ki te whakatā me ngā wā kai. Ko te roa me te maha o ēnei kei te maha o ngā haora e mahi ana koe. Hei tauira, me mātua whai tētahi rā mahi waru haora i ngā whakatā utu 10 meneti e rua me tētahi whakatā wā kai utukore mō te 30 meneti.

Ahakoa he herenga ō tō kaituku mahi, kei runga anō i a koe te kawenga hauora me te haumaru mōu me te hunga i tō taha. Ka rerekē pea tēnei e ai ki te wāhi e mahi ana koe. Hei tauira, he rerekē ngā ture i tētahi toa tēnā i tētahi pēke, ā, kei runga i a koe ki te pānui i tō kirimana me te kōrero ki tō rangatira mēnā kāore i te mārama.
