Making Your Skills Pay Off During Your Time Off

Once upon a time having two or more jobs or additional skills was not seen in a positive light. It was usually something you had to do to stay above the poverty line. However these days it’s a sound investment because using the skills you have to help others is a great side hustle. You’re not veering off the road from your main job, but the things you do know can be used to good effect.

Everyone has the opportunity to become a teacher and earn while they pass on their skills to others. Rather than sitting at home watching Netflix, you may find it’s worth your while to teach others the skills needed to enter the industry you work in. Even just personal skills you have gained from a hobby or interest can be put to good use.

Not Everybody Likes Their Routine

When most people think of a routine, they imagine the typical girl from a positive lifestyle article in a woman’s magazine. She’s slim and healthy, laughing at a joke that nobody will ever know while eating a green salad. Or maybe she’s showing off her widest grin on her way to the gym – back from the gym; it’s hard to tell, girls in magazines don’t seem to sweat when they exercise. In other words, you already know that routine for this girl, and her readers mean freedom, health, fun, and the perfect figure. 

But for some people, a routine is the last thing they want to keep in their days. Routine is hell, and they hate it. If you sometimes roll your eyes when you stumble across the laughing girl and her salad in a magazine, you probably have already questioned the advantages of your routine. If you fear the work routine, this article is for you.

Is There Really Anything As a Dream Job?

“I want to find my dream job.” This is what we’ve heard someone say. If we are being completely blunt, we’ve made this statement at one point or the other at various stages of our career.

It often feels like there is a lot of pressure in life to find your dream job. So many people out there talk about how they’ve found a job that they are passionate about and others feel like they deserve that as well, which is only fair. However, most often than not, the job you’ve worked so hard enough to actualize might turn out to not be as you expected. For example, you might begin to feel unfulfilled after some time on the job.

Alternatively, you might outgrow something that you always thought you wanted to do from childhood. And all of a sudden, it no longer feels like a job that you are interested in. This can feel intimidating giving all the time you must have spent training and trying to accomplish the goal of getting the ‘dream job’.

5 Mistakes Job Seekers Make On Their Resume

I’m not certain if it’s the fact that I took classes in Human Resources, chat with a number of job seekers, have searched for a job at different stages of my career or just my love for writing in general that has made resume writing enjoyable for me.

I’ve had to learn the hard way in many cases which is something that I’ve equally come to take advantage of as I believe that it’s taught me a number of lessons over time which I love sharing here. I’ve had the opportunity to meet with experts in recruitment and all of this has helped me realize a number of mistakes that many candidates make when it comes to their resume.

A resume is one of the first steps to finding a job and a good opportunity to land an interview (in the job you want!). As a result of this platform, I’ve had the opportunity to review several candidates’ resumes and I have noticed a number of mistakes they make unconsciously.
