Fap whenever u want
Gaming
And most importantly, and my favorite, spend my time in the lovely ORoom :angel::angel:

activism in parties

Why not try to create a small passive revenue stream while in between jobs?
Creating a small website with some of your interests ? creating some ecourses you can sell?
I have been working on building these passive streams while working but it all half assed jobs as i am too lazy in the weekends only one started to pan out...

For ecourses i do not have experience in that as i do not have the patience. I know someone who creates some material and sells it and makes a bit of cash.
For example when gdpr law came out in europe she wrote a comprehensive course for IT professionals on how to implement it and what practices they need to change. She was able to sell a few copies and every now and them a copy or 2 gets sold.
If you are looking for a revenue stream you need to put a lot of effort in the website you are creating and try to see how you can monetize it in an optimal way.
I was talking about passive revenue something that can bring 100$ per month without much effort and can be maintained once a job can be found.
Personally i am at a bit over 60$ per month with 0 effort through dividend stocks...and im working on some projects that will take time.
The goal is to build several of these for me to make a better living.

I wish you the best of luck as im sure you are very qualified and maybe you will build a good website with good investigative journalism!

for other people who are trying to change career or want help in managing the interview path, motivation, inspiration..

a friend if mine put together this association called “LIBRO” to help lebanese and arab youth empower themselves and face the job market in a more healthy way.

you may want to take a look at this



all in all exercising and readind/develloping more skills is always helpful and a good long term investment

interviewing in terms of?
For Jobs

networking for what purpose and how you do it?

Meeting people who are "influencers" in firms that may hire me / I would be interested in or that know people who are "influencers". It helps you identify opportunities and also learn about what firms are doing and what they are looking for in terms of talent.

You need to talk to 200 people to get connected to the right 20 who eventually will lead you to 4 or 5 who may have a real job opportunity so you can land one...

But then again, this is for the industry I work in, in the market I work in and for my level of seniority / experience. Every person's situation is different

hek so2al 3a zaha2 !

I usually don't feel a thing for the first two weeks.
But then get very depressed and sleep most of the time. And avoid seeing friends or family more than I usually do.
I don't apply to the EI (even though they tax me), because it's socialism and I dislike the process.
I stop ordering food and start cooking my own meals to keep my budget low.
I also apply every few days and research each company that wants to interview me. Mostly to refuse those that are either too technical or have some annoying HR female that has no idea what she's doing.
It usually takes me 2 - 4 weeks to secure a new job / contract.
I recently signed a 6 month one and so should be good till April.
