Making your first job work for you

Set up a transactional account and a saver account- try and keep a certain amount of each pay in the saver account each month

  1. Does your employer match your super contributions? If so, even $20 a week can make a huge difference over the long term -you don’t often get free money!

  2. Did you know you don’t have to go with your employers default super fund? Shop around for better performance

  3. Put a budget in place and track your expenditure so you can always stay on top of what is in your bank

  4. Save for holidays and one off expenses – avoid credit cards- you will be thankful in the long run

  5. Are you able to take annual bonus’ in company shares? Sometimes this can mean a greater bonus if the company is growing and doing well

  6. Keep your work related receipts and claim them at tax time
