What do you do at work? No, really. Be honest. What is it, exactly, that you do there?
If you’re nothing but a paper pusher, professional emailer, or expert meeting attender, you need to think about obtaining a specific skill. Those who are able to do things that a very small percentage of the population can do will find themselves in a better position to find work if the economy goes south.
So, think about what you’d like your skill to be. It doesn’t even have to have anything to do with your current job. Maybe you could learn code, work on engines, set up a home network, or market a business. Take some time to invest in yourself, and you’ll be glad that you’re able to differentiate yourself from the masses.
