2 SIDE GIGS BASED ON YOUR WORK EXPERIENCE
than having to learn a new product or service that you can promote on
the side, your current knowledge gained in your career can be a great
avenue to additional income.
The two side gigs I will discuss today are:
- Freelance work for others involving your field within a structured site online.
- Helping others understand all about your career field as a Mentor with Career Redo.
FREELANCE WORK FOR OTHERS
Let’s say your work experience has been involved in writing. It could
have been for media, such as newspapers, magazines, television,
corporate work, your own books, or other such areas.
There are sites such as Upwork and Fiverr that welcome people who have skills that can be used to performs services for others. These freelancers are selling their services.
search their sites for individuals who are knowledgeable and skilled at
their field of experience. Using our example above, someone may need
to have an article on a particular subject. The clients can find writers
who are knowledgeable and skilled at writing.
Another example is
that the client may have drafted an article themself about their topic
and needs to have a writer edit that article. This is a quick and easy
approach to solve the problem.
Work Through Established Connective Sites
CAREER REDO MENTOR
This role is searched out by its clients for a different reason than the Upwork freelancer.
the clients are looking for individuals who have experience in their
career field because the client is considering a career change possibly
to the career field of the Career Redo Mentor. The Mentors are selling their knowledge of their working environment.
Before I get too deep into the aspects and benefits of being a Career Redo Mentor, let’s review a definition.
A mentoring definition as set forth in Wikipedia says:
“Mentoring is a process for the informal transmission of
knowledge, social capital, and the physchosocial support perceived by
the recipient as relevant to work, career, or professional development.”
That tells me that it is about the transfer of knowledge, but also about how the recipient perceives the information. That last part is critical to what we are trying to do here at Career Redo. We want the Client to capture the information she/he wants that you provide.
In order for you to learn how to become a mentor with Career Redo, it is important that you truly want your Client to learn.
