In this day and age, people are always talking about how bad the economy is and how it is making things difficult for them to find secure employment. Here we can help you out with some tips and ideas that can help you to obtain some stable income in the future.
The very first thing that you have to do is decide to make your future your responsibility. If you want to make your life better, you have to take matters into your own hands. There are very few, to zero, jobs that just get handed out. You have to go out and using the talents you already have and what you know, make something happen to provide for you and your family. Now on to some things that you can do to get some income.
1. Clean up your appearance.
The truth is that you have to be the person that the boss wants, not what you want. You want that job, well then you better clean up and look professional for that job. Don’t go in with tennis shoes and t-shirt. What’s so sad is how many people skip this step. In estate agents, a house that is run down doesn’t sell, and it’s like that in employment too.
2. Rewrite your C.V for every job.
If you are looking several different places, they will all have a few key different things they want. If you make just a blanket resume, then you will miss out on getting the most out of every opportunity. There are plenty of people throwing their resumes and applications at every job and we believe the average amount of time a person spends looking at your resume is just a few seconds so you have to make sure them count.
3. Specialise. This is the one key that will help you get in the door. Think about it, if you apply for a job that you don’t need any experience for, then so is everyone else. If you have a skill or license that gives you an advantage, then you better take full advantage of it. If you don’t have any certificates or licenses then get something.
4. Get some qualifications.
During the height of unemployment, the rate of unemployment for those with some sort of higher education is lower. But what if you’ve been in the work arena for a while and don’t want to do the four years and spend large amounts of money getting a degree? Why not check out a vocational training? There are lots of skills and certifications you can get in just a few months that will make you much more attractive for employers.
5. Don’t be scared of a commission job.
In truth, there really isn’t any completely secure job, but you have to make it with what you have. If you have sales experience, then use it. Many people do very well with a low basic salary but earn very well with sales commission. Whether you are making a career out of it or just need it until you get what you really want, don’t be afraid to go after it.
6. Work where you can or work differently.
Try working two part time jobs. Try working five one day a week jobs. Try doing some consulting if you can. Take your hobby to the next level and do something with it. Get creative and look for everything you can find. If you aren’t getting anywhere doing what you are doing, then try something else, and then try something else. Remember never give up, you have to keep trying.
We really hope that everybody can find a job or something that gives them a chance to take care of themselves and their loved ones. We believe that these are some things that you can take to heart and apply, and that they will really make a difference in your life. The best thing to do when you want something is to go out and get it.
