Is the place you are working for about to shut down, or get taken over or is the place you work for downsizing tragically?
Think of everything you do at work. Think of all of your daily tasks. Think of the side stuff, the stuff you find fun. look for that job or look for those jobs. Your position is one that millions are looking for.. This new position is one that is useful and no one is looking for. Still search for jobs in your field, by no chance should you pass the chance to do what you are qualified for. Just apply for multiple positions. Job search for multiple job types that you know you are good for and good at.
See someone once said to me, ” if it ain’t fun, then it ain’t worth doing” . I though that was a pretty cool statement. A useful statement you can take with you. It does not mean pass up your career as a doctor to sale ice cream from a box on a ten speed bicycle, just because you always wanted to try it. i actually am referring to the side work you do at your current job. Like i myself work on the company’s website, to ensure we have more customers, to guarantee we have more sales and more income to bring in money that pays my wages. I alone am not responsible for the money that comes in, we have a handful of sales people. If they can not seal enough deals, we go under. No matter how many people call because of our website. I keep our company in the first page of all searches related to our business. My position of course is a totally different position. I am actually required to do something completely unrelated. If the company I work for goes belly up, I am searching for a web design and Search engine optimization job, or going to our competitor and doing my normal routine work and selling and sealing the deal with my bonus ability. I could even go as far of a stretch as say graphic design in my job search. how? you ask. Well someone makes the logo.
See you just have to find it all and try it all. Something is outthere that you are certified for and there are things out therethat your perfect for.
You just have to find it.
