    I was lucky that my career path was mangaing call centers. There are so many call centers all arounbd the United States and especially New York City, I was always able to find temporary part time jobs to save for vacations (and once to completely remake me wardrobe). Altough I was in a postion of authority managing these call centers, I picked up little side jobs and learned new technologies that I was able to take to my full time job. It is the best way to build skills and network.

      That’s great you had that experience. If I’m correct, call centres usually have flexible hours so you can plan other work inbetween.
      I hate the standard 9 – 5. On my commute each morning and on my way home, I would plan other ideas and writing opportunities. I always wanted to have more food for thought than my main job.

    Great blog post! You’re right about the lack of confidence that others have so that’s why they don’t end up applying for the jobs, main or side.

      Thank you! I’ve come to realise that for many people, their success is down to one or two people saying yes against countless others saying no. But it is tough finding the confidence to apply for things because of the fear of failure.

I would love to read your thoughts!
