Finding Work: New Avenues

light bulb

Recently I have been thinking about how to get out of unemployment. Like many people, I am trying to think of creative ways to find a job. I am looking outside of the box, as it were. I think that it’s tough out there these days and it’s essential to use all of your strengths to find a career.

One of the directions I am thinking about is to work in a non-profit helping people to get back into the work force. I love helping people and I like volunteering to help people gain literacy. I’d also like to educate people as to how to write resumes, seek work and pass the GED. It isn’t a cake walk to get into the non-profit arena. It’s important to make contacts and volunteer at first. In Chicago, knowing how to speak Spanish is also very important.

There are lots of ways to look outside of the box: networking, volunteering and even writing down all of your strengths on paper. Everyone has something positive to offer.

I’m currently volunteering as a literacy tutor and I am hoping that eventually that will lead to a job opportunity. I’ve told the organization that I am looking for opportunities in their organization and maybe in the future that will pan out.
