Getting Odd Jobs After College

Jobs are difficult to get especially now that few people are required to fill the many positions in the companies and other organizations. With the advent of computerizing the job sector, one person can perform, with the aid of a computer, a lot of tasks previously performed by well over 100 people.

The computerization of the job market has also led to people trying to acquire many skills so that they can become viable for employment thereby diminishing the chances of those who are fresh from colleges. The graduates therefore find it so difficult to achieve what was once a lifetime dream because most colleges do not offer an opportunity for one to develop skills in many careers, and these careers are also very demanding that they can’t be done by one student within a limited time of college life.

So now that you are about or that you have come out of college, and you have been looking for a job which seemingly never come to materialize, what options do you have to earn your self a living and at the same time realize your life long dream of becoming a master in your profession?

There seems to be no clear answer to this but as a student who is just about to graduate from college, I would advice that you should consider acquiring some skills in technology so that you can be able to improve your skills in other areas as you earn yourself some income from the odd jobs. I myself experience doing some hospitality jobs to save money for college.

Because information nowadays sell like hot cake, if you could have learnt some basics in typing and web development, then you go online to look for partners who can enable you use your web skills earn some income, then you would appreciate the savings you would get for not actually looking first hand for the job you were trained on. Another area of the job market that should have been trained but because of the limited resources or otherwise time is the marketing and advertising sector. As you strive to get yourself a place to work, you should look for opportunities to market some products that are either upcoming or due to some reasons have not gained acceptance by the consumers. The marketing and advertising job as earned a lot of my friends that came from college a good amount of money that help them puss forward in life.

Though some students might think that going to low in life might be a disaster, personally during my vacation I do cleaning of hostels in a nearby institution in order to get my self the next semester’s fees. Sometimes I even bend too low to be a copy typist in a typing bureau, or go ahead to do editing and formatting, including graphic design or help someone in these fields perform their jobs.

Opting for an odd job should not be limited to the office oriented jobs or even the so called white caller jobs. But jobs that can be done in the agriculture sector during harvest of different kinds of crops, during the times of weeding, and even during plantations should be taken gracefully. In life, one should be able to venture even into the construction industry for in every job done, there will always be some income that is gained. Don’t waste your time burdening your parents and guardian to provide for you your basic needs yet with your two hands, legs and the brains you can for the meanwhile make a lot of difference in the economic status of your own self…and be better physically.
