The Truth About Working From Home

Recently, at a hang out with a colleague we got chatting about work, life and all that comes with it. A long time ago, I might have said I wanted a job where I would have to go into the office every day. That day though, sitting and having a conversation between two ladies who just wanted to catch up on a couple of drinks, we both agreed that it’s truly a good benefit to have the option to work from home aka ‘WFH’.

It’s really encouraging when you have employers that see the value in providing work from home options as a benefit because it’s really a competitive advantage. Especially with how busy life can get, it’s of importance that you have some work-life balance. Having this option helps an employee feel valued and not feel like just a seat warmer.

It’s important for employers to realize that the quality of your work isn’t determined by how often you show up in the office but in your results. Many companies are now adopting this approach and it’s only getting even better as most companies now offer this as an unlimited option, meaning that employment options are getting better.

Why Heading Into A Niche Is A Good Thing

Maybe you’re at odds with your current job, and you want to find something niche you would be more suited for. You’re not the only one, in fact, your boat is overcrowded. Many people want to work in their particular industry but haven’t been able to find a job that they find is going to allow them to be at their best.

This is where niche roles come into play because despite being in the same industries, they offer something different and off the beaten path. But what is a niche job exactly? Clearly, it’s something that isn’t part of the norm and offers something that is not going to be for everyone. On the other hand, it can also be deemed more specialist, something that requires unique skills that are hard to come by.

Why Employers Are Looking For Your Authenticity

What are your thoughts on being authentic? Put yourself in the shoes of a business owner. Just imagine how stressful their lives are. They have a million other rivals to compete with, they’re constantly trying to innovate and stay ahead of the curve. Trying to implement new technologies. Desperately trying to understand consumer trends and searching for talent.

That last part concerns you, someone who is searching for a new career or a new job has to factor in all these things an employer is trying to do. So when it comes to hiring, a business owner doesn’t want just any average Joe, they want someone who can really change things for them.

How To Search For A Job While You Are Currently Employed

People change jobs for a number of reasons and this is okay. We are allowed to do what it takes to grow our careers if it serves a greater good and makes us find fulfillment. Gone are the days when you had to work a job that made you feel miserable or didn’t align with your purpose or passion, whatever that means to you!

Many experts believe that job seekers who are currently employed are more desirable candidates. But then you also hear people say: “if you hate a job, quit!”

Is Your Job Making You Miserable?

If your job is making you miserable, then this might sound like a typical thing that most people have to put up with from time to time.

But, a job has the potential to affect many parts of your life negatively, as it is like a dark shadow that dominates your life. You talk about it with friends, partners, and even kids – it can consume you – and it can certainly bring you down.

We saw a movie a few days ago. Long story short, the lead role quit her job because she wanted to start thinking outside the box for a while. This is a valid reason but it was so dramatic as with most movies.
