Should you take a meaningless job?

Job Searching Again – Should Athletic People Get a Regular Meaningless Job?

By Lance Winslow

What if you were a superstar athlete and smart too? What if you had to decide on a profession other than sports because you were not in a sport that could command the high salaries of professional sports stars in Basket Ball, Football, Base Ball or Foreign Soccer? What kind of a job would you pick that would still allow you to practice and stay healthy?

If you just get a regular mindless job, could you be happy? Would you really want to just work 9-5 and could you be just another employee? Yes, work can be mindless at times, but it entirely depends on what you do. Maybe you might like to be self-employed.

Being self employed is fun, because you get to keep track of more and strategize plan, improvise and adapt on the fly; always solving problems. Working for others can be no fun, if there is not challenge. Of course, part of the problem is YOU, because as a high-powered athlete with a sports background the chemicals in your body, oxygen uptake and drive makes you a different kind of person than everyone else, you know?

There are some people that just like to do their job, hang out and watch TV, quite honestly, I do not understand why they bother and if you are an athlete you probably do not either, still some folks just like to punch a clock. Perhaps, it is human nature to do as little as possible and just get by, the reason you do not understand this is because you are not like them. Athletes are a completely different animal than the rest of the masses. Please think on this when searching for a job.

Truck Driver Shortage Continues

Job Searching Techniques – Truck Driver Shortage Continues

By Lance Winslow

Despite the incredible downturn in the transportation sector, there is still a shortage of truck drivers and it’s huge, most estimates place it at 125,000 currently, off from 175,000 due to the economic turmoil. So, if you are searching for a job, you should check out truck driving as a potential career, most truck drivers make a very decent wage, and if you are worried about income, keeping your home or paying your bills, this is a good choice.

How do you go about searching for a truck driving job? Well, there are several sources, first go to a large travel center that sells diesel fuel for trucks and ask the clerk where the truck driver news rack is with all the truck industry magazines. They are free and there are no less than 5-different ones to look at. Pick up a copy of each and start reading all the ads.

Next, pick 5-6 that you are interested in and go to their websites to fill out their online forms. I was scanning the news in Transport Topics and Traffic World, looks like freight is down in shipping, trucking, rail and air-cargo, but I heard an ad on XM Radio for one of the trucking companies yesterday, so there is still a shortage of quality drivers even with the economic slowdown. Over the next day I heard 5 such ads all paying very well.

The financial news seems to point to a bottom of the recession, and the FED is putting money into the system, lowered rates again, and it looks like we have the government going to blow some more of our taxpayer’s money and do a trillion dollar stimulus, so things will recover, I just hope we don’t get into a runaway recessionary bubble with all this input.

What does all this mean? It means that the demand for truck drivers now is strong, and it will only get stronger as the economy recovers. So, please consider all this.
