Doing it on your own
If you’ve never experienced self-employment, it’s difficult to fully understand just how different it is to having a 9-5 career. Many people imagine it to be more laid back than full time employment, but that’s not necessarily the case. There are many challenges to overcome before you consider going self-employed.
By understanding any problems that likely lie ahead, you’ll be more prepared, helping you to avoid disasters further down the line.
The Secret to Success
It may be cliche, but the saying ‘success is no accident’ is truer than it has ever been. Especially when there are so many complexities to business, skyrocketing opportunities for small enterprises, and the constant evolution of technology. Anything can happen to anyone.
Your biggest break could just be around the corner. But what makes a successful person? Only the human being behind the suit and tie can make things happen, become reality and persistently chase after perfection. The qualities of successful people are similar, so what are the traits we should be looking to gain?
A Successful Appearance
There’s several factors that play a part in whether you’ll be successful in the job search. You’ve got your CV ready to be scrutinised by the hiring manager, and you’ve worn your Sunday best to come off as professional and capable.
But does how you look really matter in the job search? We all know they shouldn’t, after all just how well you’ve done your eyebrows that morning doesn’t factor into how capable you are. But humans are humans!
Filling in the Gaps
Does taking a break from the 9-5 sounds like a dream that will never become reality? Whilst most of us picture an ideal career gap as time sitting on a tropical island enjoying the high life, a gap in your career doesn’t have to be so far fetched.
