“Coding leads to insomnia…”
One of the best ways to get yourself hired, and keep a job is to make yourself an indispensable resource. Instead of throwing you a bunch of meaningless examples, let me instead pose a different kind of scenario. Take an at-glance of what it is you do on a day-to-day basis at your job (or what it is you would like to do if you’re looking for a gig). If you see people in your company doing things (or job descriptions) you’re interested in learning about, or could do better, the only thing stopping you from moving forward with those opportunities to be a professional Swiss Army knife is yourself.
If that doesn’t make any sense (which it probably doesn’t because I’m running on about 3 hours of sleep). I worked in social media on an earned & owned capacity and am now at a job where I’m doing social media on a paid-basis. Last week I decided to go completely rogue and teach myself… how to CODE. That’s right. I’m going to build websites, tabs, and hell, maybe apps in the next few months when I’m done with my studies – whenever that may be.
For the record, I took two semesters of Arabic in college… That was easier. *sips coffee*
