So you just graduated from the university, or you've
probably been laid off your job, now the hard reality
that you have joined the mass population of
unemployed people in the country dawned on you.
Now what?
You start submitting your CVs to various companies
and openings, hoping to be given a chance for an
interview with them. You were lucky, you've been
granted an interview. You went, and felt pretty
satisfied with your performance. But to your utter
disappointment, you never got the job.
Trust me, I have been there, and it wasn't a pleasant
situation to find oneself. But rather than sitting at
home doing nothing, waiting for that dream job to
come by, why not invest that time into something
productive and keep yourself busy. Because no
matter how bad it is to be unemployed, your best
option is to "always make the most of it". Remember
the saying "when life gives you a lemon, make
lemonade".
Listed below are useful things to do when
unemployed that will help you get through this
challenging phase of life.
1. Learn A New Skill.
Learning a skill, whether it is related to your preferred
job or not adds more value and depth to your life.
There are so many skills in the world available to
learn. Skills such as tailoring, writing, graphics design,
cooking of various assorted dishes, coding,
shoemaking, web development etc. are always in
high demand. And the good news is that you can
always learn most of these skills online and for free.
Just pick up the one which interests you and master
it well.
2. Create A Network With Friends And Families.
Most times, unemployed people feel awkward about
reaching out to friends and families because of
inferiority complex. But it's worth noting that reaching
out to people that matters increases your chances of
getting a job. Let friends and families and even
professional contacts know that you are in the
market for a job and request for their assistance in
finding connections to the organisations that interests
you.
3. Engage In Voluntary Activities.
Volunteering is a great way to fill a gap in your CV.
Employers highly admire it as it shows that money
isn't the only important thing to you; rather, you are
passionate about what you do and care about
helping others. It also gives you a sense of fulfilment,
knowing that you are doing a good deed to those
who need it.
4. Update Your CV And Cover Letter.
A common mistake most people make is to
underestimate the power of a good CV and cover
letter. Your CV represents your brand. It is Your first
chance to make an impression on a potential
employer.
CV usually includes the following;
Personal Details
Education & Qualifications
Employment History
Key Skills
Interests
References
When writing your CV, always have in mind that
others will be applying for that same position as you
and will be submitting their CVs as well, so it is
essential that you make a good impression on the
employers to attract their attention.
Don't just list all your past places of work and
experiences. Also write about how what you did,
benefitted the organisation you did it for.
5. Become A Freelancer.
The internet is a different world of its own, always
presenting various opportunities to those who are
ready to take action. One great way to spend your
idle time while making quite a decent income is by
venturing into freelancing, provided you have a skill.
Freelancing involves working on a contract basis for a
variety of companies. There are lots of freelancing
sites online where you can make decent money, but
you will need to have the skill to offer.
Skills such as article writing, graphics designing,
programming, and so on are in very high demand.
Example of such sites include
Fiverr, Upwork, Jolancer, Freelancer, etc.
So long as you've got something to offer, sign up for
any or all of the sites listed above and start cashing
out.
6. Generate Business Ideas.
Untapped business ideas are all around you, open up
your mind to the possibilities, and you might just be a
winner. It doesn't matter if you have the means to
go into it yet, it doesn't matter if you are thinking
small-scale or big-scale, just think of one business
you see yourself succeeding at and who knows, you
just might become the next successful entrepreneur.
7. Start A Blog.
Blogging is a way of expressing your thoughts and
imaginations online. There are quite some good
platforms where you can set up a blog even for free.
Blogger and WordPress are the most popular.
If you are quite a good writer, in your idle time, just
blog about anything and everything that fascinates
you.
But you may need to choose a particular niche if you
want to blog professionally.
And if you succeed in growing your audience, you
might just be making some money for yourself.
