If you get the opportunity of a freelance job or two while not employed elsewhere, you should obviously be happy about it and not turn it down. Unemployment benefits will only go so far (a few months after terminating your last employment), and, also, the larger the gap in your employment history, the harder it will be to explain it at your next interview. Even if a freelance contract job isn’t actually a job (as in traditional employment) per se, it’s still an honourable way to list your previous work experience in front of a recruiter. Not to mention the more than welcome cash flow. [Read more…]

We all know that our economy of the past few years, despite its improvements, hardly continues to offer a land of opportunity as it once did as far as salaries go. The disappointment from being paid less than you deserve is even greater when you also have a college degree (which would normally increase your pay). Some majors and specializations prove much more disappointing than others in terms of the financial compensation in post-graduation employment.
