Finding a Job

Do you feel like you will never find a job? Exhausted from the job search? Not sure what to do anymore in your job search? Tired and frustrated after submitting resume after resume to various companies? So many positions you were the perfect candidate, but never even got a response from the company? This happens with a lot of job seekers because people are living the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, in their job search. 

Everyone who can’t find a job or are not being called for interviews always blames it on the job market. I hear comments all of the time that there are not any jobs and that is why they can’t find a job. Well I am going to burst that bubble because that is not true, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics there are 5.8 million jobs (March 2016).  With millions of job openings, there are jobs available.

As with anything, there are always upsides and downsides and being an independent contractor is no different.  The pros are being able to work your own hours which you can have a flexible schedule.  Depending on the company, you may also be able to choose the work you want to perform or not perform.  This is a great way to work at home if you want to work part time or work when it is convenient for you.

Becoming the very first and only employee of a company is definitely a scary proposition. For people who are contemplating on starting a new business, there’s always a lot of information, tips and guidelines to help them out. On the other hand, not as many resources are available for people who want to know what it’s like to be the first employed individual of a business.

Getting a job seems like it should be a fairly simple equation and process, right? Well, these days getting a job isn't as simple as it seems. Gone are the days of buying a newspaper, jumping to the classifieds, and mailing in a cover letter or resume.

People often times will not consider or apply for a position because it states you are an Independent Contractor.  Some people just have it in their mind that an Independent Contractor just is not a good thing; while others do not know what it means to be an Independent Contractor.
