Jobs That Won't Exist In The Future

Browsing the internet i found a lot of information about job interviews, how to behave, how to create a good CV or resume. In fact, i found more information that i was hoping to find. It's a well written topic. I want to discuss something else, though: job security.

How secure are jobs? How long can one practice a job? With the ever increasing penetration of technology in our lives, more and more jobs are becoming obsolete and humans are being replaced by computers or robots.

There are more and more examples of this happening everyday: USPS plans to lay off thousands of workers. Why? Because more and more people are going paperless, they choose to receive their bank statements online, their phone, cable bills online.

How To Find a Job

Fit the job to the skills rather than the other way around.
Many people search for jobs, then try to see how they can "tweak" the way they present their own skills and experiences to fit the job description. Instead, try something different. Make a list of all of your skills, determine which kinds of businesses and industries need them most (ask around for advice if you need to) and find businesses that'll benefit from having you and your skills around. It's important the nature of the job fits your personality and salary requirements, otherwise you'll have spent a significant amount of time to find a day job you dread getting up for every morning.

How To Succeed At a Job Interview

In getting a new job, it’s not only about the skills or knowledge an individual possesses it’s also about interacting with other human beings. In fact, the way you interact with the hiring manager of any company, can be the single most important thing that actually gets you hired. At an interview, you have a very limited time, sometimes it’s only minutes, to convey an exceptional value and be outstanding from the long line of applicants before and after you.
Applying for a job you need to know that many other people have the same skills you have. Even more, I bet you didn’t realize this: most people behave the same way, giving the same answers to the same questions. It’s a great chance that you’ve responded to managers questions exactly the same way others did, and this didn’t get you hired.

Should You Quit Your Job or Not?

a). don’t like your job
b). don’t like your boss
c). think the job you have doesn’t fit your lifestyle
d). think your pay is too low
e). feel you can do more than that
f). agree with all of the above
Then you definitely need to QUIT & GET A BETTER JOB!
It’s completely normal to dislike a job, in fact, what you probably just got the wrong one and are in need for a change.
