People can have routines in their lives. Work can be a routine for many people.
Routines related to work can be:
When people lose their jobs, they can feel great stress. Part of the stress can be the established routine of a workplace disappears. What provided structure for many people becomes lost.
You may find it helpful to establish routine ideas as you search for a job. Below are some ideas to develop a routine while searching for a job. Some established ideas for a routine can be:
In conclusion, these are some ideas to create a routine while searching for a job position. A schedule may help reduce your stress related to your job search.
You may want to find information on remote jobs (or remote careers) on the Internet.
I guess you could do a variety of different activities to find information. Some ideas could be.
You could probably think of other ways to find information than those listed above.–some ways to find information are likely to be more effective than others. I want to focus on searching engines to find information on the Internet.
You can use search engines–places on the Internet that you can use to find information. Google would be a typical search engine.\
If you are using a search engine and not finding the information you are looking for, you can look to see if the search engine has an Advanced Search feature.
The Advanced Search Feature gives additional options to search for remote jobs (or remote careers).
Let’s look at the Google search as an example.
Go to Google at www.google.com.
Then in the search box, type “Advance Search Google.”
Hopefully, you will then get a search result screen that will give you the choice of “ Advanced Search–Google.”
Click on the link “Advanced Search–Google.”
Advanced Search Screen
You will then see a screen called “Advanced Search.”
You then will have a screen listing different options that you can search by.
You can find some options that include:
You can either type in your search in the correct box search option or use the suggestions on the right side of the screen on how you can write out a search in the search box.
Screen list suggestions under the column title “To do this in the search box.”
Let’s use an example you are trying to find Instructional Designer remote job positions.
You may get a better search result if you search for the phrase “Instructional Designer” job as a phrase where the search result will display only those results with the “Instructional Designer” phrase in the entry.
You can either:
You then can put the word “remote jobs” in the “all these words” box feature.
You will then hopefully get results that have Instructional Designer Remote job positions.
In conclusion, a search engine may have an Advanced Search feature to give you more search options when searching for information on the Internet. Google has an advanced search feature that may help you achieve more success when searching for remote jobs (or remote careers) on Google.
Sometimes, when a person is searching for a job position, they can feel stressed. You may benefit from getting away from the job search for a while and doing an activity that you enjoy doing.
Here are some activities to consider.:
In my opinion, you may often hear news coverage as negative rather than positive. You will hear about the bus driver who crashed their bus, killing seven people, rather than the bus driver who successfully and safely transported people for 30 years. If you want to read about positive stuff in the world, search for positive news on the Internet and see what you find.
In conclusion, you may experience stress in the job search. You may benefit from taking time away from the job search. You then can do an enjoyable activity to re-charge your energy before getting back into the job search again.
Many people will work in a variety of different careers as they pursue a remote job. Salaries will be different for different remote careers.
You may find it valuable to know the salary range for a particular remote career; you may find the salary information helpful in deciding upon a specific job and helping you negotiate a salary with a potential employer.
Here are some places on the Internet where you can find salary information.
Indeed.com is a website that provides job positions people can explore; Indeed.com also includes salary information. You can find out salary information on Indeed.com.
Here is where you can find salary information on Indeed.com
Go to Indeed.com
Then you will see a link on the top part of the screen called “Find Salaries.”
Click the “Find Salaries” link.
Then you can type in the career field and location to find the average salary for that occupation. You can type in the job title you want to explore and then type in the word “Remote” or “United States” (type in the word “remote” will translate the location as “United States”).
Occupational Outlook Handbook
The Occupational Outlook Handbook is a two-year federal government publication that gives information on the major career fields of the United States.
Go to Occupational Outlook Handbook (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/)
You can read career information on particular careers.
You access a particular career either by typing in a word search or browsing by category.
For this example, let us browse by category.
You will see different categories on your left
For this example, select the category “Business and Financial Occupations.”
Then you will see some specific occupations in the Business and Financial Occupations category.
Then select the choice “Training and Development Specialists.”
You will then get more information on the Training and Development Specialist profession.
You will have a series of box links on the top part of the screen to give specific information on the Training and Development Specialist career.
For this example, select the “Pay” box link.
You will then have a screen that will give information on the Training and Development Specialist profession salary information.
In conclusion, Salary rate information may be valuable to you. You can use the information to help choose a career. You may also use the information to negotiate a salary with a potential employer.
Lose your Job: Now Unemployed
When you lose a job (be it a remote job or not) – you can enter a stressful time in your life. People may experience various emotions like surprise, sadness, loneliness, and anger. Here are some suggestions to deal with job loss:
Ideas to help with the stress
If you are paying for a career expert, please evaluate the career expert to determine if that career expert is worth your time. I would recommend a pay-as-you-go arrangement with your career expert rather than pre-paying for services ahead of time. That way, if you no longer want to use the career expert, you can stop paying the career expert for services.
In Conclusion, dealing with job loss can be stressful. Ideas expressed are some ways to deal with stress. I hope everyone’s job journey is quickly solved when dealing with unemployment.
When I get feedback on something, I have found that I can often improve doing that something.
The feedback I am thinking about is the feedback where you give suggestions to another person on ideas to improve. Examples of feedback could be: “Here are some suggestions to improve your resume,” or “Here are some suggestions to improve your application,” and so on. The suggestions still allow the person to decide if they want to use the advice or not.
When I searched for a job position, sometimes the only feedback I would get from a job search was a lot of rejections. I would not get any other type of feedback in a job search–like ways to improve a cover letter, ways to improve an application, or ways to improve an interview.
The job search itself would provide no additional feedback except for rejections.
I have sometimes found it helpful to get feedback from other sources – Some of the other sources can be:
In conclusion, I have found getting feedback in my job search could improve my job search. So, if you are having difficulty with your job search, consider getting feedback.
Have a wonderful Happy Easter
(Or have a wonderful holiday on whatever holiday you celebrate)
I spent this week celebrating Easter with friends and family for me.
Next week, a new post will appear; may everyone have a wonderful week.
Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates the holiday.
Happy Holiday to whatever people may celebrate for those who do not celebrate Easter.
May everyone have a wonderful week.
Going to post something a little different from talking about remote careers; going to talk about history this week.
Filmmaker Ken Burns had a recent grad documentary about Benjamin Franklin this past week on PBS.
The show series is two episodes for those interested in watching the show.
You can watch the episodes online at the following address:
Web site Address: https://www.pbs.org/kenburns/benjamin-franklin/#watch
The two episodes are:
(1) Episode 1 | “Join or Die” (1706-1774)
(2) Episode 2 | “An American” (1775-1790)
The show is an excellent show about Benjamin Franklin, and I would encourage anyone interested in American Revolutionary War history to watch the show.
Busy time of life for me, so I used a past post about Benjamin Franklin.
On July 4, the day we celebrate the United States Independence from England, people may think about the American Revolutionary War. I enjoy reading about the heroes of the American Revolutionary War. One hero of the American Revolution War I enjoyed learning more about is Benjamin Franklin–here was a hero who was an inventor, took part in the American revolutionary activities, and was a successful business owner.
Benjamin Franklin was involved in many of the American Revolution activities at an age when people may consider a person no longer able to contribute or be effective in society; some examples are
For me, Benjamin Franklin can be an example of what you can do, no matter your age. Regardless of what age a person may be, a person can be influential and contribute to society–just like Benjamin Franklin.
You may decide to take college classes remotely to help you with a remote career you may want to pursue.
Here is an idea to evaluate time commitments for college courses.
College courses can vary in their time commitments. The same college courses taught by different college instructors may vary in their time commitments.
Students may have a choice in what classes they would like to take that would satisfy their course of study. Courses of study could be certificates, degrees, or other recognition for students taking courses.
Colleges may provide students with a short evaluation period between when they sign up for the course and when they have to drop the course before paying for it. Students can use this evaluation period to decide if they want to take the course or not.
The syllabus is an essential document for a college class. The syllabus gives vital information about the college class. The syllabus can have information like grading policy, what materials will be covered in the course, and schedule when assignments are due.
If you have
If you have the above choices, you may want to consider the following idea:
You can sign up for more classes than you plan to take for that college term. You intentionally decide to sign up for more courses than what you plan to study for that college term; you intend to drop some college courses.
You can use this evaluation period to obtain information in two areas:
You then can have more information to evaluate a class. You can then decide what course works for you.
In conclusion, you may be able to use a short evaluation period between when you can sign up for a course and then drop the course before paying for the course. You can use this evaluation period to understand the time commitments for the course better.
