Screaming Resume Service

 

In an economy that grows without helping the middle and lower classes to grow, many people in New York have to juggle multiple jobs. There are also many people who are juggling multiple part time jobs because they cannot get one good paying full time job.

So for those of you who either are already juggling multiple jobs and those who are considering doing so, how do you succeed now? How do you balance your work life with your home life with multiple jobs? How do you stay on track with your long term goals while holding these various jobs?

  • What’s Your Motivation?
  • How Do You Use Technology?
  • Spend Time with the Family
  • Don’t Lose Sight of Your Dreams
  • Stay Healthy

What is your motivation? Are you working multiple jobs simply because you have to or is this means to an end? Do you have a goal that leads you to work multiple jobs until you find a way to reach that goal? Is there a position in your industry that you are shooting for but which is not available in our current economy?  Perhaps you want to work from home and juggling multiple jobs for a while is the way to get there. Be focused on where you are going. Don’t work for the paycheck alone. Even if that paycheck is why you took the second job, you will need more than that in order to stay motivated.

How do you make use of technology to assist you while you juggle multiple jobs? The more you can work from home on any of your jobs the better. It will increase the time spent with family even if you are just physically present and still working. Just be sure you keep all your jobs separate and if one company provides you with technology, like a tablet, laptop, smart phone, do not use that technology to do work for another company. It is unprofessional and unethical to do so.

You need to spend time with your family. Don’t let juggling multiple jobs take up your life or you will have no life. You need time away from all your jobs to refresh yourself and to sustain your family life. Handling multiple jobs is a very stressful endeavor so make sure you find a way to make time to refresh yourself and cut down on the stress. Being with people you love who love you is one of the very best ways to cut down on stress.

Don’t lose sight of your dreams. Stay motivated and focused on what you want down the road. If you took several jobs just to survive than keep in touch with your dreams by keeping in touch with the industry that you love while you are working other jobs. Stay current with what is going on in that industry and what the trends are.

Stay healthy. Take care of yourself. It is so easy to lose sight of what you need when you are under a lot of stress. Eat right. Sleep enough. Take time for the things you love to do. Then you will be able to deal with multiple jobs and keep your eyes on the prize.
