7 Things to Do While Unemployed

By Shikole Struber

It's been 3 months and you are still unemployed. Now what? Twiddle your thumbs?

  • Start a blog/write a book/column

  • Travel (if you can afford it, or talk your parents into paying, now is the best time!)

  • Create things! I have a good friend who just started to make bracelets and sell them online.

  • Volunteer. If you can't find paid work it will look really good on a resume if you are doing some good while being discouraged in the job market.

  • Read. For fun. I know, it's a foreign concept but get going on that list that's been building up.

  • Excersie. While this is a foreign concept to me personally, I've talked to a few friends who are passing the time with yoga classes and the like. Zumba is another big excercise class craze.

  • Cook new things. It's cheaper to cook at home than it is to get takeout or even to go out. Try to make some tapas or try out that new cake recipe.

What are you doing to pass the time while unemployed?
