There are many matriculants struggling to find work, even some matriculants who have done further studies and have a degree, but how long should a matriculant spend time looking for work before trying a different approach to earning an income?
Well, if a year has passed since a matriculant started looking for work, or since a university graduate started looking for work, and that person is still having no luck getting a job, things will not be looking very good at all.
Depression may set in, causing these unemployed youngsters to put even less effort into continuing to try finding a job.
Of course I am not suggesting that matriculants look for work for only one week before considering a different approach to earning an income, but that they and their family and friends be aware of how depressed they all may become if a matriculant continues to have no luck finding work for quite some time. Who will pay for that matriculant’s living expenses – and for how long?
When people cannot find work, one solution is that people make work come to them, by working for themselves.
It can be extremely tough working from home, but some may consider it less tough than spending a very long time looking for a job. Even though working from home can be tough, once a matriculant has settled into working from home, and continues to work hard at it, things can start looking up.
If matriculants really have their heart set on working for somebody else rather than for themselves, they do not have to totally give up on that idea. They can continue looking for a job while also making some money from home. Even if they find a job, what they started doing from home can be done in their spare time to earn extra income.
