Sedentary Job? No Way!

In today’s computer driven world, more jobs are playing into the sedentary lifestyle that defines modern America. However, there are still jobs that get people up and moving and can even help people stay in shape.

Here is a brief list of some of these jobs and the things that one can expect to do in them.

Personal Trainer

A personal trainer helps others achieve their fitness goals. Because the job is exercise driven, one must be fit and healthy to do this job well. Maintaining a high fitness level and a healthy lifestyle will help attract clients and provide a strong model for them to admire. Jogging, weight training, and even yoga may be among the daily activities of a personal trainer.

Chef

Chefs are always on their feet as they move about the kitchen preparing food for their diners. A chef must have impeccable culinary skills, a creative mind and an untiring spirit. Being a chef is a fast-paced and energetic career that any active, food-minded person may enjoy. To get a good job in this field, job training and certification from a culinary program is essential.

Parks and Recreation/Landscaping Jobs

If you enjoy being outside and working with plants, these jobs may be ideal for you. They do require a fair amount of physical labor, so a strong back is a must. You can expect to use heavy machinery for mowing and cleaning landscapes and planting flowers and shrubs to beautify yards and parks.

Don’t pick a job with great vacation time. Pick one that doesn’t need escaping.

Nanny

A nanny job may not be the best paying gig out there, but it’s certainly active. No one knows how to move all day long like children. As a nanny, you can expect to run and play, make lunches, and drive the children to lessons and other activities. Some nannies may also have light cleaning or laundry duty. Even if you do nothing but play with the children all day, you’ll feel that you put in a full and active day.

Field Service Technician

Many companies, especially utility companies, need people in the field to make repairs or answer customer calls. Many of these types of jobs will require a great deal of local travel as you drive from place to place. This means a constant change of scenery and never having the same day twice.

Construction jobs

Most construction jobs will have workers outside on a day-to-day basis. If you like to work with your hands and be outside, these jobs will be great for you. They combine building or remodeling with an outdoor atmosphere. Like landscaping jobs, these will require heavy lifting and manual labor, so a strong body is a must.

These jobs provide an opportunity to be outside in the fresh air while using your hands or bodies in a much more active way than the typical office job. These are ideal jobs for people who would feel too restless and pent up by doing a sedentary job that keeps them tied to a computer all day.

 

3 Out Of 5 Companies Want Employees to Speak Fluent English

The majority of employers want their employees to speak English on the job. That makes sense for a variety of reasons. Employees who cannot communicate with each other are going to find it difficult to work together. Having one language on the job makes it easier for everyone to understand each other. What are some other possible reasons for wanting employees to speak English?

Majority of Americans Speak English

English is officially not the official language of the United States. However, most people in the United States do consider English to be their first language. Using English as the preferred language in the workplace makes sense because of this fact.

Employers Only Expect English To Be Spoken on The Job

Employees who are not fluent in English should not be too alarmed. Employers can only dictate the language you speak while on the job. This means that just a basic understanding of the English language is required. Taking some night classes after work should teach you enough English to get by on the job. It is only fair that foreign workers learn English as many more Americans are learning to communicate in other languages for business purposes.

English Is the Language of Business

The English language is the default language for business purposes around the world. Almost every student around the world learns a basic command of the English language. Learning how to speak English could very well help an employee no matter where they are employed. Many companies are going to do business with an American company at some point. Learning English just makes it easier to do business.

The art of communication is the language of leadership.

Employers Can Monitor Employee Communication

You don’t want any illegal activity going on while employees are on the clock. The easiest way to slip something past your employer is to use a language that your employer does not understand. Not allowing employees to use a language other than English could add another layer of security for a business that pays employees to be ethical.

Communication is vital in the business world. Having all employees speaking the same language is important to good communication. There are many valid reasons why your employer may demand that English be spoken at all times while on the clock. Understanding everyone around you helps get the job done smoothly and safely at all times.

What You Haven’t Learned in School? How to Survive at Work

No one can discredit the importance of education, but schooling only gets you so far. Even if you worked part-time during college or completed an internship, you have no idea what you are in for once you start working full-time. College or specialty schools only give you the skills and information that you need to complete specific tasks in your job. College does not prepare you for what you actually encounter and face in your job. If you want to survive at work, you need to learn the tricks that make you the best employee possible.

The first thing you should learn is to dress appropriately for your job. Some people say that you should dress for the job that you want and not the job you have, but this is potentially risky. If you wear suits on a regular basis, while your co-workers wear jeans, you might draw too much attention to yourself. Take note of how your co-workers dress and present themselves at work and use that as inspiration. Spend time in the morning making yourself presentable and present a professional front. If you wear the wrong type of clothing, your supervisor might overlook you for any potential promotions.

Forming relationships is an important part of surviving in a new job. Even though you might not hang out with your co-workers after work or on weekends, you should still form relationships with those people. You should also attempt to form a relationship with your supervisors or bosses. The only way to get through the day is if you can work comfortably with others. When you set yourself apart from the group, you risk alienating your co-workers. The next time that you need support for a new idea, those co-workers might just look the other way.

I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.

NEIL GAIMAN 

College teaches you skills and how to complete tasks, but it does not teach you how to promote yourself. The only way that you can get ahead in your career field is by promoting your talents. The way that you promote yourself depends on your exact field. You might promote yourself by seeking out new clients or bringing sales from new clients into your business. You might promote yourself by making yourself available to customers and answering any questions that they have. You can even get ahead by taking the initiative and doing the jobs that your co-workers do not want to do.

To gain success in your career, you must take responsibility for your actions. You cannot expect to succeed if you simply do what your supervisor assigns to you. You must be willing to step up to the plate and go beyond your basic tasks. When your supervisor points out something particularly good that you did, make sure that you explain you did it yourself or with help from your co-workers. Only take responsibility for the things that you did and do take away from the work of your co-workers. Do not be afraid to take responsibility for the things that you did wrong either, as your supervisors might view it as a learning experience.

Five Minutes to Work: Advantage or Disadvantage?

When searching for a job, most people consider location to be an important factor. Driving an undesirably long distance to work can be a major disadvantage; more gas is required, and the commute can cause one to waste valuable time driving. It’s a known fact that having a long drive to work has more cons than pros, however, a less known fact is that having too short of a commute to work can actually be a disadvantage. While there are multiple advantages to having such a short and easy commute, the disadvantages should not be ignored.

It’s Just Five Minutes Away

The “It’s just…” syndrome can occur often when the commute to work is only five minutes long. Individuals may find themselves being late to work more than often because “It’s just five minutes away” and who needs to get up an hour before work when it’s only five minutes away? This state of mind may also cause multiple trips home; not only for lunch, but for little things during the day. “It’s only five minutes away…I’ll just run home and…” Such an attitude result in low productivity and angry bosses.

I can walk to work!

When it comes to transportation, having a five-minute commute to work can be both good and bad. Depending on location, individuals with a five-minute commute to work may find that they don’t need to spend money on a car, buses, or taxis. Of course, not having a car and or transportation can backfire if the weather is bad. Walking to work on a beautiful, sunny, warm day can be fantastic, but walking to work through a blizzard is a different story. Furthermore, if one has to take “homework” to and from the office, not having a transportation may turn out to be a real hassle.

The goal isn’t more money. The goal is living life on your terms.

CHRIS BROGAN 

I save so much money…

While the aforementioned negatives of not having reliable transportation are relevant, being able to walk to work has its advantages. Individuals will be able to save a ton of money not having to pay for gas, car payments, or bus and or taxi fares.

I’ll run home and grab that!

While running home too often can be very bad, it can also come in handy if something is forgotten at home. Furthermore, individuals may find that the convenience of running home for lunch is not only easier, but it can save an abidance of money on not having to spend to eat out on a daily basis.

While being five minutes to work has its pros and cons, it’s almost always better than having an extremely long commute to work. The important thing is to be careful not to abuse the privilege of living so close to work.
