Let’s be frank: life sucks a little bit for today’s recent graduates. So many of them, despite having expensive college degrees, haven’t been able to find the jobs they set out to get hired for. Often, they end up working in low-paying, low-skill jobs with dubious futures, or worse, can’t find any jobs at all. This, of course, results in record numbers of college graduates who are now living with their parents, putting pressure on families that are likely to be struggling with both the current economic situation and impending retirement. And as both graduates and parents struggle to stay afloat, student loan bills often begin to roll in. Things just aren’t great, and while plenty of people are quick to point out the problems of Generation Jobless, there are a few bright spots in all of the chatter. So if you’re over the whole Generation Jobless pity party, take a moment to check out these inspiring pep talks, offering inspiration, ideas, and hope to those who may have run out.
So what to do? Onlinecollegecourses.com has some good ideas; one is to start a blog. Why? To keep sane, maintain a routine, fill your resume, network, and maybe even make some cash. Better than sleeping 16 hours every day. Homepreneurs posted about making money from blogs in the past, and provided tips for successful blog writing.
When you’re unemployed, it’s easy to get bored and cut off from the world. After all, instead of heading out the door to spend time in an office each morning, you’re more likely to plop down on your couch or log on to Facebook than get dressed and pound the pavement day after day. But the blog behyped recommends ditching your daily unemployed ritual for a new one that involves a blog. Blogs, behyped says, are a great way to open up new worlds to anyone who has been “temporarily cut off from society” whether it’s from joblessness or disability. Sharing your interests and talents through a blog means that you’re developing social proof, reputation, and a networking tool that might actually help you land a job. Beyond that is the possibility that your blog can become a money-making business. At the very least, a blog gives recent grads without a job a purpose, which without any other benefits is certainly enough, giving you the opportunity to say you’re at least doing something.
Blogging isn’t the only suggestion for unemployed college students or graduates. Take a look at onlinecollegecourses for several more suggestions to help you during these though economic times. Some of these include: creating your own opportunity, finding that first big job, and financial tips. This website has very valuable information. Check it out.
