Virtual Jobs That Can Free YouJune 27, 2019
When I bought my place a few years ago, it required some work to put my personal touch on it. I wanted to update the bathroom a bit by painting and replacing some of the fixtures. I wanted to replace a few doors and install some shelving. I already had a basic toolkit and went out to buy a drill set and levels. I thought I had all I need and was ready to go. I thought to myself, “How hard can all this work be?” and I got started.
Even though it may not always seem this way, there is an enormous amount of help and support out there for singles wanting to make a career change. It’s a great time to learn, grow, and explore your many talents and personality traits. Here are 4 reasons why it rocks to be single and on the prowl for a fab new career!
If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed, not to worry. There are qualified professionals who can help you “get to know yourself all over again,” make the best choices, and prevent you from making any hasty moves in your career that you may regret later. As a career coaching certification singapore who has helped countless individuals discover the profession that’s a perfect fit for them, I can help you make a positive career change, one step at a time.
So that brings us back to my challenge. Like most anyone, I need health benefits and it helps to have a baseline income to weather business fluctuations. I could, and have, applied for a variety of positions related to the employment field. But nothing so far has been a real fit for both my experience and ideal job criteria. So, I am going to create my own dream job in the next 30 days.
Raise your income. Can you start a side consulting business and use the proceeds for the big change? The graphic designer can create websites, the financial planner can give Quicken tutorials. I know a marketing director who did a brand strategy for a start-up to pay for her kids’ new swing set. However, remember that you need your energy for the big change — this job is just for money so pick something you know you can do in which you won’t get too invested.
You are pessimistic. Having a positive attitude towards your job is very important to ensure success. You may have all the great skills you need, but if you don’t have a ‘go-getter’ attitude, you will never succeed. To be successful in your chosen career, you need to have the right mindset. Optimism will allow you to stay focused on your goal against all odds.
What does this have to do with your job search? Perhaps you are clear about what job you want. Maybe you know what needs to be done in an effective job search. You know you need to craft a resume and cover letter, look for job openings, and network. You may know what to do in your job search, but do you know “how to” execute effectively?
If you want to prepare for “land-mine” type questions and responses, seek out a professional career coach, or professional career guidance counselor who has the experience in working with senior level candidates. You can’t afford to get this far and fail.
