A lot of you may not know this about me, but I actually have a serious Hobby. Well, maybe it’s more than a hobby, It’s actually an extremely employable skill. I just never really get around to using it, for whatever reason, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not interested in it. I’m just satisfied with my life and career, and haven’t felt the need to take up a new project that would be totally time-consuming, although it would surely generate a lot of Revenue. However, I’ve been thinking about ways to make more money lately. Don’t we all? A lot of my friends have been talking about it, and I’ve realized that their main obstacle is that they don’t actually have a skill that is totally desired on the market. I have a skill that is not as exciting as the things that many of my friends do, but there is always room for more of it in the modern Market. Are you curious yet? My skill is actually software engineering. I’m trained to be a programmer, even though I never actually do it very much. Surprising, right? Many people are very surprised, at least, and I understand why. I don’t exactly strike most people as a software engineer, especially because my life has veered so far away from that. But, that’s what my bachelor’s degrees in, and I intend on continuing to do this kind of work in the future, but not as a full-time staffer. You see, I’ve recently learned about the surge in IT outsourcing. Yes, this is a real thing, and it doesn’t just happen offshore. Many software Specialists are becoming Freelancers or starting small businesses, and larger organizations or other small businesses hire them on a contract basis to do certain tasks or take responsibility for specific software or programming needs. It seems like an interesting way to generate some extra profit in my life. I could use some more cash, as I really want to travel more often, and I didn’t put the pieces together and decide to do this until very recently. I’m very excited. Let me know if you have any tips.
