Between jobs? Take some pressure off
I met with a client last week. She’d been unexpectedly retrenched from a role which she had enjoyed for many years.
She was feeling the weight of her mortgage, expenses associated with a young family and the need to get another well-paying job.
She felt the pressure to demonstrate the right mindset; that she had moved on from the last job and is open to what employers have on the table now. Plus the need to have a savvy LinkedIn profile, CV and her value proposition pitch honed for networking. It’s a lot for someone to get their head around in the midst of so much turmoil.
Among it all, there was one thing I was able to do for her.
I found ways for her to earn an income that suit her situation while she looks for another well-paying job. This gives her breathing space, taking some pressure off.
Earning some income while you are looking for the right job can dial down the stress, enabling you to focus. The range of options that we have researched exceeds 110. We find some people choose to do work related to their occupation, others prefer passive income that keeps their day free for job hunting.
