Brains & Skills
If you don’t want to flex your muscles and have a good brain and good skills, here are some other options:
- Computer Geeks Unite: If you’re a master of the keyboard… that is, the computer kind… then generally there are a lot of jobs available. Everything from helping companies create or maintain a website, to repairing computers, to less exciting positions such as data entry. Good computer skills are always prized. Try to become familiar with the basic programs: Microsoft Word, Excel, and Power Point. Any additional programs are a plus. However, be honest—if you only know the basics of a “required” program, let a potential employer know your true ability. At the same time, if you’re totally proficient, let the employer know that too.
- Teaching a skill at a camp, school or to an individual person. This can be anything from teaching computer skills, sport or a musical instrument.
