Stop complaining about the job market.
Stop spending all your time browsing job boards.
Stop acting like you’re entitled to a job.
Stop waiting for someone else to hire you.
Realize there are ways to make a living that don’t involve depending on someone else. (Like this idea? Tweet it!)
Get to work creating your own job.
By looking at your skills and figuring out how else you can make money with those skills. Maybe that’s consulting or freelancing. Maybe it’s growing an online community and selling products. Maybe it’s building something people will pay for.
Of course, this is not the easy way to make a living. It takes far more outside-the-box thinking than simply asking employers for a job, and not everyone is smart enough to make it work.
But if you’re smart enough to read this blog, you are probably smart enough to create your own job. To quit waiting for the economy to get better before following your dreams. To dig deep within yourself, rather than relying on someone else who may or may not come through.
I think you have it in you.
