I'm looking to create the job I want. I want to write a mix of fiction and non-fiction for a living. I've been building my article portfolio, expanding my knowledge base, constantly reading and writing fiction, and expanding my hubs here at HG. Each month, my overall earnings grow. So am I seeking a job? No, but I am making my dream job.
I'm looking and despite having a bit of voluntary work now in the field, since getting a redundancy three years ago, I miss out on interviews, being told I have no 'recent' experience - by which they mean 'full time in the relevant field'.
Yes.. my position was rendered redundant at my last job and I've been seeking available avenues to get back on a job. Though (or because) I have a diverse experience, that next job is still eluding me.. Thankfully, my partner and friends are being supportive. I'm now a full-time job seeker :)
Another thing I'm toying with is availing Govt funding to up-skill myself in areas in demand locally. I might join a Cert IV course soon. Also, taking the time out to review my career to create myself a set of goals for the next 3 years and work on that, as a start.
