When Out of Work Get on the Internet

It is wonderful to take time to get your life in order while you are out of work. So often when people are out of work they see only the problems. There is good reason for that after all. If a person remains unemployed and without income for a significant period of time, there may be unemployment, homelessness and hunger! However, if using the look for the silver lining approach, one would see there is a good thing in being unemployed for a period of time. If you should find yourself unexpectedly unemployed, get out your favorite device and get on the internet. There are several things you can do while on the internet in order to make life better:
  • Job Search – employers are increasingly posting and accepting resumes exclusively via the internet
  • Hone or Develop Skills – the internet is a treasure trove of resources one can use to improve one’s work skills
  • Get Educated – there are numerous websites one can use in order improve one’s education via the internet
  • Self Improvement – if there is an area of you life that could stand improvement hit the internet to find a useful video or book

When you are out of work you have more of a precious resource – time. Use that time to make improvements in your life. If  you have been trying to get in shape, get on the internet get some advice, check out some videos and join some support groups.  If you lost your job because you have a bad attitude, get on the internet and learn how to get a better one. If you do not have the skills you need to do the job you want, get on the internet and get some new skills. Instead of looking at your time away from the work place as a curse, take the silver lining approach. Look at your time away from work as an opportunity to get on the internet and do those things you have been planning to do . Instead of just talking about it, take action now and do it!

In conclusion, it is wonderful to use your time away from the workforce to get your life in order. So, the question for you this wonderful day is, how would you use your time away from work to organize your life?

  • I am trying to make a few dollars or save by using coupons or freebies. I need to be productive while I am on internet

  • Absolutely great idea! Moping just promotes bad feelings at least you will feel productive and that is key.

  • I also think it's important to maybe find a new hobby or passion when you're unemployed and searching the internet. I've seen so many stories where someone's unemployment has bought them to the hobby that eventually turned into a successful business.

  • I have to admit i would first be lazy until I was tired of being lazy. THEN I would take your advice and use the Internet to find a job!

    • It might be nice to get to be lazy for a little while!

  • That is great advice! Use that time wisely. We all have so many ways we can network now. Great post. Good information.
